I REALLY think this is a great book. I think EVERY woman (especially Southern) should read it, since we are taught to be polite over anything else. Be polite, but DO NOT GIVE THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT. Very interesting points and I liked the spirit of the information. Highly recommended. Even though I think he mentions it WAY TOO much on his show.
I can be pretty generous with my reviews, but this was truly incredible. Admittedly, it started a little slow and I was skeptical that it was going to be anything exciting. If you like Gillian Flynn and felt like you were reading those with your mouth open in shock, this is your next read. The narrators were great. The story was great. If you listen in the car, be prepared to waste a lot of gas driving around. It is definitely a "page turner."
I told myself, "Don't go in with high expectations. This is going to be fluff. Perfect background noise for my drive to work." I was shocked and surprised by how MUCH I liked this book. It was charming, sweet, nostalgic....You know everything that you like about the movie? It was that in spades. I have so much more respect and admiration for Cary Elwes. He is funny, he does voices and the stories about The Princess Bride only enhance my love for the movie. Take a chance.
The premise of these books is interesting, but I am ready for these characters stories to be wrapped up. I am already onto Son, just because I am not a quitter. I would not describe these books as overly satisfying, but definitely a fun step out of my normal reading preferences.
I am not saying that it is great, but you have to finish the series! It would be like watching all of a movie and stopping 10 minutes before the end.
John McClane from Die Hard. Smart, sexy, but also a legit BadA**. I set a reminder on my calendar for May. I HOPE book 3 is out by then!
what a funny, unexpected pleasure. a must read. besides the food, the culture of cooking is all its own
totally, not what i expected...only about an hour spent on the murder and the rest on wrestling terms.
I was pleasantly surprised by book 3. There was so much going and they left us hanging on book 2. I did not want to suffer through the end of Alphas or the last episode of Lost. (nerds get it.) This really tied everything up and in a plausible way. With that, the whole series is worth a read. A new twist on the whole mystical creatures genre (vampires, witches, etc.)
You know those random thoughts that bounce around in your head? Mindy Kaling has put them down in this book and makes you laugh at them. Not just laugh, but stare at them under the microscope, so you realize that everyone has similar random thoughts and those thoughts are RIDICULOUS. None of us are as funny, dumb, fat, skinny or bright as we thought we were and we basically have no idea where we will end up. Just enjoy the ride and LAUGH.
You know that moment in Sixth Sense (spoiler alert) where you find out he is DEAD?! This book feels like that from beginning to the end. Every moment you are going: What?! Are you kidding me?! He/She did what?! It is a fantastic read. BUT, LITTLE BUT.....I felt really let down by the hero(ine) at the end. You just wanted to scream NO into the speakers, slap (it, no pronouns) around and say: You have GOT TO BE FREAKING KIDDING ME??!!! It was part of the twist and that is what makes the book good...
