I remember laughing when i borrowed this book from Dad in high school. I think my sense of humor has changed.
I'm not sure what i was hoping for here. The book chronicles, in an honest and forthright way, the author's bereavement at the death of her husband. It is well written and well read. I just couldn't get through it. Too bleak. Perhaps there is sunshine at the end, but i couldn't hang in there to find out.
Jackie is irrepressable and unstoppable, as usual, but the tension of her and Jamie's unconsumated love is getting old. I found myself questioning the plot more than i did with the earlier books. Katherine Kellgren's performance remains stellar.
Our girl Jackie is up to her usual hijinks, getting into deeper and deeper trouble at every turn and then getting out of it better than you had even hoped. Sexual themes are getting more developed--growing up with Jackie, i guess. Not for children under 13 and then, it might be best to read it yourself before passing the book on to a young teen. But the adventure is a wonderful wild ride!
What a great experience all around--wonderful story, incredible, theater quality narration. I was sorry reach the end, and happy at the same time because now i can get some sleep!
