She's so unusal. Who knew Cyndi Lauper was singing about Miranda July? The fact that she reads her own fiction and makes it better shows that these thoughts she has are truly hers. This book has troubling parts for sure but it also has laugh out loud parts that will make people on the bus turn and look at you.
Wish there were more books this weird, yet not sucky.
Was thoroughly disappointed and bored with the first part of this book. Boring writing, no build up or suspense, and am I the only person who is burned out on George Guidall? And then the war comes and the back is utterly haunting.
On chapter 91 and I still have over 4 hours left, incredibly drawn out story written a narrative like that of a documentary. The book has its moments of being vivid and well told, but it has hours of painfully dull excruciatingly minute play by play of daily life.
Similar but not as good as Rosie Project. Did make me watch Dragnet on Netflix though which has been kind of fun.
A nice story pretty good overall, nothing to write an expose on but I enjoyed it.
Two unremarkable, unhappy, judgmental pains remain that way even after an excruciatingly long walk. There is no epiphany, there is no road of wisdom, there is just smallness and pettiness.
Let the hate begin.
So forgettable I have no clue what this book is. Even though it is in my library. The bummer thing about audible books is you can't resell the crappy ones on amazon.
I go through one book a month and frankly most of them I forget. Not this one; brilliant from start to finish. Augustus McCrae used to be favorite literary character now its Eli McCulloch.
Gripped my attention early and held it to the end. Ok end was weak but rest was extraordinary. Yes it has filthy parts, yes it is for adults who like something beside shlock. Yes it is shocking at times. If you go to church regularly and blush at adult themes stay away. And curl up with a nice predictable book full of bad things happening to wonderful people,
Two dimensional characters behaving in predictable ways. Been here before in poorly developed fiction, a thousand times before. You take today's thought processes and values and apply them to pre civil war era time period and you get crappy story telling made solely to pull at your heart strings only it is too transparent and contrived to do except on those with lifetime channel standards.
