Someone compared this to Brigette Jones. I have nothing against Brigette Jones but it closed my mind to this and I just couldn‘t do it with this book.
Dirtier than I usually read but still good.
I know I like this book. Not entirely sure if I have the words to explain why. It took a while to get to the huge action and usually that would bother me but I was entertained by getting to the destination. I was annoyed slightly how quick it seemed to end. I like Jo and Gabe‘s relationship and how they deal with Ursa. Don‘t read if you‘re sensitive to animal death.
First audio book of the year. Gosh I love Tom Hanks. I understand why people live this book but they like character driven books more than I do. The end was slightly different than I thought it would be but still satisfactory. I had a hard time fully living the characters. I wanted to tell them to stop obsessing but everyone has their own obsessions.
I have problems with this book. No way these kids are 13/14. No way all these kids planned and kept this secret. I have problems with the end. Every five seconds I rolled my eyes and said no way. No....just no. I have no words. I mean, I do but there‘s too many for this post.
So I listened to this book and it‘s a relatively solid book. I read the description and decided I knew what was going to happen. For the most part I was right and then the last like third of the book happened. I‘m glad it ended how it did but I had made up my mind on how it was going to end and it upset me I wasn‘t right. If I had been right I would have picked this book.
Most books I‘d be a third of the way. Nope. Just a tenth.
This is my audio book that I listen to while working on projects. I love this series. It‘s western without being gruesome. It‘s got Sherlock Holmes references and humor. Good read.
This was a relisten for me. I think the last time I read this was in college. It‘s still an interesting book but this time I noticed how juvenile parts of this book was compared to other parts. It‘s good for a distraction. I‘ll have to read the rest of the series again to see if the writing gets more consistent.
I have to review this? It‘s very atmospheric and engaging. The world building is masterful. I would take a class on Tolkien‘s writing.
So I didn‘t read this as a kid, I‘ve only seen parts of the movie. I knew kind of how it ended. But let‘s break my heart anyway. I felt strongly about the lazy sisters and about the younger sister. I felt for the parents and the main characters. I liked that they referenced The Chronicles of Narnia. I may have lived this as a kid.
Well written historical fiction. I love this kind of book
It‘s an interesting book. I was only 8 when she was in the 96 Olympics. I didn‘t realize what all went on in her life, though knew some. I didn‘t like some of the jumping around from her growing up and finding her sister. I feel like there were parts missing. But a very interesting read.
I was nervous cause this woman was about to turn 31 and so am I. Then I just got caught up in her world. I liked who she met along the way and I like that it wasn‘t like Eddie‘s story. She needed the hope that her journey gave her and I like it.
I‘m not a crier when books are involved. But this book there were tears involved. I relate so much to Annie. Spoke to many issues I‘ve had over the years.
Lots of good stories and passion. I marked a medium amount in the book.
I saved this book for October. I really enjoyed it. This isn‘t my normal genre but it kept me interested most of the book. Obviously I liked the last third when it picked up the most and I‘m not sure why all the scenes were in there but it was good. Nice twists at the end.
