Very enjoyable,light and completely unbelievable. Doesn't tax your mind. Reader could have been better.
An engaging story that proves the old saw "truth is stranger than fiction". A definite must listen for anyone with even a shred of interest in history. Has a Indiana Jones feel to it.
The ending is a cliffhanger... to be continued. I didn't really like that aspect of it.
Also, both Power and Beauty both 16 at the start of the story, don't give you a sense that they are teenagers. They act like grown 40 year-olds without any teenage angst or 'tudes'. Entertaining but not real.
Very funny! Loved it! I think even my husband who doesn't knit would have good laugh. Hey, he likes to make fun of me and my hobbies.
It's not really a romance (thank god, I can't stand those silly things) or a chick lit book (no mention of Jimmy Choo shoes whatever those are). It's a good nonfiction with a decent storyline -for me not too complex, not too simple, not too many characters.
The main character shows some growth about how she deals with her troubled son. She finally evolves and learns to put herself first.
I also like books where I can learn interesting asides about places, events or things or that motivate to do new things. This read encouraged me to start cleaning out my closets!!
This story had two characters that I really could relate to-the son who was very much like my daughter (now deceased-rehab can do so much) and Marva who was very much like my mother except she (and fortunately not much of a hoarder) was an architect.
I really enjoyed this read except for the narrator. The narrator spoke in a slow, sexy, languid almost "porn' style" which almost puts you to sleep. I rarely have any complaints about narrators but this one really creates a mess.
Light, engaging, entertaining. The narrator's voice is a bit annoying-too old and scratchy although in character.
Not great but enjoyable, definitely falls into chick lit category. Interesting side comments on knitting.
