    A moving depiction of the transformative power of first love, Hamanns first novel follows Eveline Auerbach from her high school years in East Hampton, New York, in the 1970s through her early adulthood in the moneyed, high-pressured Manhattan of the 1980s.

    I moved audible account status up to platinum just so I could get this book (two credits)...Ultimately, I did enjoy it, but it is long and overwrought on self-inspection and sometimes you feel as if the author was playing a "how many metaphors can I get into one sentence" game. The worst sin of the book? Evaline, the main character and her true love, Rourke, spend years of torture apart, and yet, there is no realy reason ever given, nor one I could even possibly find, as to why they couldn't be together in the first place. If anyone can explain to me why their love was so doomed, please, share...cause I am still at a loss on that one...

    Sick of hearing about vampires? So is Meena Harper. But her bosses are making her write about them anyway, even though Meena doesn't believe in them. Not that Meena isn't familiar with the supernatural. See, Meena Harper knows how you're going to die. (Not that you're going to believe her. No one ever does.)

    Ok, while I admittedly was into vamp-lit long before Vamp Culture took over our world, I still have a discerning pallette, and this type of crud is what has made everyone turn off of vampire stories. Why did it make me appreciate Twilight? Because at least the heroine is honest about her feelings AND her intentions....she loves the guy, doesn't care that he is a vampire, and is more than happy to become one in order to be with the great love of her life. I am BEYOND tired of this mundane, run of the mill garbage where some mortal airhead falls for a vampire, has amazing, mind-numbing sex with him, and then somehow decides she doesn't want to be tainted by his evil ways and instead, wants to pursue the forces of good (sorry for the plot spoiler there...) and all just so that the author can stretch it out into a money making series. Come on! Give me a story where the heroine accepts what she is taking on willingly and with the brain of an adult any day over this. Truth br told, if vampires DID exist, I don't know many women who would turn down being eternally young, living with the great love of their lives forever and whom they had amazing sex with and who just also happens to be crazy rich and offers his undying love and protection. AND WE ALL KNOW IT'S TRUE. And yes, everyone else is right about the narrator...I felt like my 9 year old daughter was telling me a story....Horrible!

    Ethan Wate thought he was getting used to the strange, impossible events happening in Gatlin, his small Southern town. But now that Ethan and Lena have returned home, strange and impossible have taken on new meanings. Swarms of locusts, record-breaking heat, and devastating storms ravage Gatlin as Ethan and Lena struggle to understand the impact of Lena's Claiming. Even Lena's family of powerful Supernaturals is affected - and their abilities begin to dangerously misfire. As time passes, one question becomes clear: What - or who - will need to be sacrificed?

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I am kind of getting tired of it all, I fear. I actually find aspects of the plot very crazy confusing, like the whole thing about Lena's Mother calling the claiming moon out of time and Uncle Macon being back,etc...huh??? My fear is that we might be listening to
