The Moment of Everything is an adult coming of age story about everything and nothing. Shelly King's debut novel revolves around a group of friends and acquaintances that have the common bond of books. It's entertaining and witty, though at times I was unsure of the plot. Her characters are of the variety that you quickly identify with and grow to love. If you have a beloved old book store, you will immediately feel very much at home within the pages of this book. The author detailed description will have you smelling the old books and looking for the ever present cat.
At one point I got a bit nervous for previous fictions I have read about bookstores soon become boring. There is just so far one can go when you write a book about books. The Moment of Everything worked through that well to tell a lovely tale of love and friendship.
Protagonist, thirty four year old, Maggie Dupres is still trying to find her place in life. An unemployed techie with a library science degree, she follows her passion while finding a way to have a career working with friends.
A nice light read.
This was one of those books where once started, not much got accomplished that couldn’t be done while listening. I just couldn’t put it down. Needless to say – the laundry is caught up since this is a blissful thirteen hours of listening pleasure.
Mary Kay Andrews just never disappoints. She always gives her readers the ability to quickly become fully immersed into a story. In order to do that, she has to draw a vague picture of where she is going pretty early on. I like that. Others call it being predictable, I call it cutting to the chase. Save the Date is certainly no different. Cara, a florist in Savannah, Georgia has a new business, a new dog and a great deal on her plate Who just doesn't love weddings and the miles of drama that they bring. It’s interesting that the main love interests in this adventure are the least colorful of the character but, with so much colorful southern “charm”, someone needs to be just a little neutral. I don’t see how I could have enjoyed it any more than I did. Great way to start off the summer!!
I greatly enjoyed the cameo appearances!!!
It's just the place where you choose to stop.............
A story of relationships and friendships hooked me right from the beginning. We easily can find our flaws in the characters and work on them with the characters. The Myth of you and me did not go in the direction that I thought it would at most every step along the way. I was thankful that I had purchased the book long enough ago that I forgot the synopsis and read few reviews before starting it. It was like jumping in a bucket of warm water. I didn’t always agree with their actions but, I understood them.
I enjoyed "The Myth of You and Me.". It's the tale of two childhood best friends, who have a falling out and how that act shapes their lives. At each twist and turn I was surprised in the direction it took. Thankfully, a path becomes available for them to move past their unforgiveable sin in friendship. The authors words are often so beautifully constructed and thought out, you will want to quote them.
