It was a cute story, predictable in terms of where the story was heading. Wife is wronged and exacts revenge, turning her life upside down. While upside down she sees the world differently and it turns out to be a good thing.
No, but she is a great reader. I felt she had perfect tone for the character.
There are some great zingers in the book.
I liked it.
Four hours in and they are just getting to Provence. I didn't expect Sophie Kinsella but this is very introspective. Each monument, crepe and cigarette is an opportunity for the protagonist to recall her husband and when they ate crepes, smoked cigarettes and saw the Eiffel Tower together. We'll see, but this is not a breezy book. More like "Elegance of the Hedgehog" in terms of style. It is wistful in prose and performance. Some people will love it.. but it isn't for me.
Wow. It's a lot of rambling and inner dialogue about philosophy, the burden of being smart and other musings. It's not a traditional story so listen carefully to the sample and you will see what you are getting.
It is beautifully read... at even at 18 hours you don't want it to end.
Just not interesting to me....a lot of tiny details and personal insight about HLS. I didn't finish it. Some people found it interesting... I didn't.
