I did not expect this to be like a journal entry about what it feels like to experience great loss
Not enough time had passed since the incident for the author to synthesize the event and help the reader get to a deeper understanding.
Performance was ok
There really are not "characters". It's a recap of lives and not memorable
Huge disappointment. I'm sorry for the author's loss. But I did not enjoy this book at all.
The tone of whininess detracted from the important content. I admire and enjoy Rachel Maddow. But hearing hours of her and her tone of, "aren't they stupid" really diminishes the impact of the facts of the book.
Recognizing the persistent belief during the Regan presidency that it was permissible to lie to the American public
Someone with a more neutral delivery. A more news casty approach
Complete lack of redeeming literary value. Compared with Lady Chatterly's Lover, it's flat and undeveloped.
Oh Gee, what a surprise an older man interested in a young virgin. Real
No. I hate the whiney, adolescent tone in her voice. It speaks poorly of her that she even did this book.
I wouldn't even write the book. I consider it a total waste of time
If this is what America spends its time on, God help America.
I love John Irving. But this particular novel was a disappointment.
Performance was fine, but writing was dull
I appreciate that the author may have been trying to give a gift to his son. But the voice in this book sounded quite false.
I was a huge fan of the first three books in this series. Sadly, I think Jean Auel's reputation would have best been served by ending the series without this uninteresting book. No doubt, it is full of interesting botannical and paleontological detail. But there is so much repetition that the material cycles to pure monotony. There's nothing new here. And the main characters are so "perfect" that the story feels false and intolerable at times. Leave this series as a happy memory and spend your reading time on something more satisfying.
