The reader in me waded into this book and the current of the story swept me off my feet and down the stream. My poor conscience was left running down the shore alone. After the final page the reader dragged herself out onto shore and sat dripping, foolishly grinning as she stared off into the distance. But before too long my conscience showed up and assaulted the reader in me. “What was that?” “You seriously liked that person?” “Weren’t you annoyed by that person?” “Didn’t you think?”
But the reader in me only shrugged and with a little half smile said, “That lady can write.”
Would I recommend it? Yes.
Love those multi-faceted questions and then your direct comment. Sometimes it’s the annoying characters and plot twists that really do indicate good writing. Thanks for sharing this title with me. I’ll check it out!
I hope you like it too, my book club read it and everyone enjoyed it!
I’ve just requested it from our library. Thanks for the share!
You’ll have to let me know what you think! Have you read her other books?
No, but I love finding new authors. If I enjoy this book I will for sure look for more…:)
She’s one of my favorite, even her books where I disliked all the characters I still loved the books!
I love when that happens. I recently read a book in which all the characters were pretty creepy, but the book itself was outstanding. (“Lost Memory of Skin” – I briefly reviewed it on my blog.) Unfortunately, I’m finding a different book by the same author pretty near unreadable. Disappointing…:(
And this lady can write a cracking review without reviewing. Love it!
Ha! 🙂 Well I don’t like to give anything away… 🙂
