This author has done it again. The Devil Wears Prada was perfect -laugh out loud funny. Since reading it, I've tried one other book by the author and now Revenge. How this woman wrote Devil I don't know because Revenge will be the second book by her I'm not going to finish. The story is thin and not funny. The narrator is horrible. She basically reads the book to you with a slight attempt at some actual expression which falls flat. I can't believe I paid $20 for this.
So far, most.
Anything! I found the story excruciating. The endless descriptions of every thought that went through the girl's head about everything and everyone was endless. I constantly found my thoughts wandering and just could not be interested in every thought she was having.
I don't know. I couldn't finish it.
This book was okay. But that was it. Just okay. I have to say I enjoyed the husband's character - his complete selfishness and expectation that everyone should understand his point of view was hilarious. The hours spent listening to the woman's psychotherapy regarding her relationships with her siblings was excruciating. And I'm a psychologist!
I have not.
The performances were fine. Nothing spectacular.
No. There was definitely not enough going on for the constant drama and action demanded of today's movies or TV shows.
It's nothing like Gone Girl - not matter how much it's hyped.
I enjoy southern literature and I love Jenna Lamia, the narrator. Looking For Me was a sweet story but the lack of drama left me wanting more. I kept waiting for something to happen when I finally realized it was just going to be a story about a girl who moves to Charleston and opens her own antique store. The storyline regarding the search for her brother was extremely limited. I just felt it was very slow and without much depth.
I would have made Teddy a little more complex and given the story a little more depth.
I love Jenna Lamia. She is the perfect narrator and was perfect for this book.
I would recommend this book to a friend because I couldn't wait to get back in the car and keep listening. I thought it was a little slow at first but the plot twists and story were amazing.
The way the author so perfectly captured a sociopathic personality.
Once the plot twist was revealed, yes, I wanted to listen until the end.
I have enjoyed all of Gillian Flynn's books.
