This was my first time reading a John Green book, and I can see why he's such a popular author. I immediately fell in love with the two main characters, Hazel and Augustus, flaws and all. They're young, brave, witty, and wise. It's a pleasure to spend your days with them.
This book is well written, but it's hard to care about characters who suck so much as people. I had to force myself to listen to the whole thing.
Rachel Dratch is hilarious. And she's an inspiration. Get this book, you won't be sorry!
I couldn't even bring myself to finish this, but that could just be me. I've been a fan of Jennifer Weiner since Good In Bed, but this just doesn't measure up (in my opinion).
I loved this piece of creative nonfiction! It was incredibly interesting. I wished it would go on and on. Ann Patchett is a great writer, and a great narrator as well. What a great free listen!
This book is very well written, but by the end, I found myself wishing it would just be over already. The characters are fully realized, but the plot is thin. If you're a baseball fan, you'll probably love it. If you're not a baseball fan, there is still plenty of relationship drama to sink your teeth into. This is a book about sexuality and self-discovery.
The beginning was interesting, but overall it felt prose-heavy and plot-light. It meandered.
Twilight is a fun listen. It can be a little plodding in parts, but overall, just an entertaining and light-hearted read. Decent narration and the only book I've listened to so far in my spare time (other than while commuting, that is). Enjoy!
Curtis Sittenfeld is an extremely talented writer. There is an honesty and an accessibility to her writing that is rare and delightful. The last section of the book was light on plot, but still enjoyable. Overall, I totally recommend. Don't worry about the politics of it. It's a story about people.
There's not much of a plot in this book. I found my mind wandering. It felt like a lot of aimless (and slightly bratty) chatter. Maybe I've just grown out of this series. I still like Megan McCafferty, but this book (at least as an audio selection) wasn't much fun.
