I really enjoy books about brilliant women and enjoyed the first 60 pages then it turned into a harlequin romance set in silicon valley! It became tedious to read anymore. When she starts talking business because "she wants to make her rival boyfriend feel better" i turned off the book.
This book is so crazy. Triggerfish lane is an out of body experience housing over the top personalities that create chaos and murder.
I have read all of Vargas' books - brilliant. The Concessionaire's crew of investigators are one of a kind. Vargas is a best seller in Europe and world famous. Please put all of her books on audible!
Bought this book on sale because I Iike the True Blood series. This character is boring and her gifts are lousy. A dud.
I loved this book. The wonders of being a sh*t magnet is the talent of the main character. The people this guy attacks are bottom feeders. The fact that people tell this guy stuff that should never be told puts this guy in some situations that are hilarious. The dialog with the serial killer on a plane had me laughing out loud for at least a minute.
Can't really explain the book, because it is the writing that pulls you in. Each line is there for a reason. A simple bike ride triggers so many things. Messed with my head throughout and I can't listen to a Christmas Carol without thinking about a certain car.
Five years ago I heard her speak at a conference, and enjoy her ways of knowing and her choice of qualitative research. Her choices expands the field away from evidenced-based practice - Finally! She is one of my favorite researchers.
I used to walk by this book on my mother's bookself and I never picked it up to read. I can't believe my parents read this book in the 60's because it was so far ahead of it's time. In the land of Gandhi, this author writes about his life and the intricate ceremonies, and insights of Hindus. I was blown away, and will continue to return to the book for the stories.
I adore the characters in this book. The women are strong, brave, and smart. The nurses are delivering babies in deplorable conditions and yet weave a safety net around their neighborhood. Thank you for a novel that is everything that Gray's Anatomy is not! In this novel the nurses humbly tend to their families and become part of the community. The author is a great storyteller.
This book is about money, murder, and the choice to be free. The female narrator reminded me of Dagny Taggart from Atlas Shrugged. Her choices and sense of self are not reflective of the time in which she lives. Peter is flawed, and the moral compass of the novel. As the seeker and questioner, Peter is the historian of the truth in a time when myths were formed in the West. The Colonel is in a class all by himself. How he attains wealth and his pursuit of power and his story is captivating.
Don't be put off by the rating. This is a simple book about perfect families that love each other and are close knit. Carefree, effortless enjoyment for the beach. The reader has a sweet voice and conversational tone.
