    Story
    (251)

    With New York Times best-sellers like Bloodsucking Fiends to his credit, Christopher Moore has developed a devoted cult following. Coyote Blue introduces Samuel Hunter, a young man who's running from his past while being tormented by an ancient Crow God with a talent for mischief.

    Overall

    Yes, if you have read newer Christopher Moore, this one is sure to disappoint. If you are reading it to find out where Moore started out, then it is interesting. You can really see how far he's come in developing characters, dialogue and story.
    It's much like reading an early Stephen King novel like Carrie after reading Duma Key. You can see the resemblence, but the maturity shows through in the later writing.

  • A Month of Summer

    Story
    (9)

    Lisa Wingate has been favorably compared to authors Nicholas Sparks and Richard Paul Evans. In A Month of Summer, Hanna Beth has been caring for her aging husband - who suffers from Alzheimer's - and her developmentally challenged adult son for years on her own. But when she suffers a stroke, estranged stepdaughter Rebecca must take the reins. As she cares for her father and the step-brother she's barely met, Rebecca slowly begins to heal both herself and her family.

    glamazon says: "A difficult listen"
    "Almost a good book.."
    Overall

    I think Lisa Wingate has talent and the potential to write a good book. However, this is not the one. Everything was there--character, plot, mystery--and then she neatly tied up all the loose ends in the last 20 minutes and everyone lived happily ever after, which is OK for a Fannie Flagg story, but more is expected from the next generation of writers.
