This book had some moments that were delightful, but nothing that I would say "You HAVE to read this!!!!" to a friend. There was nothing offensively bad, but nothing really memorable or exciting about this book for me. I could see how someone would enjoy it, but I was ready for it to end. I didn't really connect with or "like" any of the characters. This book was just OK
So, I have just read Teri Wood's "True to the Game" and was completely swept up. I decided to try out "Dutch" because it was on sale. I'm glad I did. I thought he story was interesting and gritty, the characters ruthless and raw. I did not like this book as much as "True to the Game" or "White Lines" (both beginning trilogy books about hustling on the streets) but I would definitely recommend. I also have a strong suspicion that this will be one of those trilogies where each one gets better and better. There's a lot of room left for character growth and development and plot twists and turns. I am sure Ms. Woods will deliver. check this out.
I think that was the point. These characters aren't always "likable" but I really enjoyed the book. You are transported to the wine country and watch these guys continually make the wrong the decisions but you're rooting for them. I would definitely recommend.
I cannot wait to read the rest of the series. I loved it and was completely transported to the back in the day drug game. I love African-American literature and this was no disapointment.
If you are a fan of Seth Rudetsky on XM then you will love this book. Be warned, and I say this with love...It is very "gay" This is about musical theater people! :) But seriously the main character is a gay man and he is hilarious. I loved this book. I loved listening to Seth. It was fabulous, and I'd recommend it...just not to my southern grandmother. And definitely not to someone who has no interest in musical theater. I was a theater and art major so this was right up my ally. Really funny and interesting.
This isn't the book you want if you are in the mood for some deep soul searching. But if a fun, playful love story with likable characters and some semi-steamy love scenes (that don't cross the boundries of taste, but still have some heat) are what you are in the mood for, pick this up. Jennifer Crusie is still my favorite in this genre, but this book was a good non-Crusie.
I was all set up to hate this book and think it was cheesy, but I was pleasantly surprised. It isn't the best book I've ever read, or even the best chick lit, but it was solid and enjoyable and entertaining. I will read the other books in this series. I would recommend.
You cannot go wrong with a book by Jennifer Weiner. This was no exception. I loved it. Get it.
I love Stephen King. I love long books. I like the 20+ hour ones, but this was a severe struggle. I don't know why but I honestly couldn't connect with the story or characters. Listen to another King. This isn't horrible, but I would much much much prefer another King, like 11-22-63.
This was so cheesy it was painful. I couldn't get over how boring and cheesy this was. Don't waste your time. There is other good romances and erotica out there, and this is not it.
I connected with this book and thoroughly enjoyed it. The only thing that would have made it better is if Andre would have narrated himself. Erik Davies was very good and I have no complaints, but I found myself wondering what Andre would have sounded like. Great book. Really interesting even for non-tennis buffs.
