As a quilter I typically love Elm Creek Quilt books but this one was so obviously thrown together at the last minute. It is a hodgepodge of character stories that have been pieced together poorly and generated very little interest. If I hadn't been on a road trip and stuck in a car I never would have finished this. Chiavernini dumps far too much social commentary into the stories and even when I agreed with her I felt annoyed by her tactics. Stick to the original characters that we all love.
Make it a novel as opposed to a series of short stories
No! Flo Gibson's voice is so irritating and this is obviously an old recording that has been digitized.
No. Someone should fire her editor because this book was terrible.
There is zero action, authentic dialogue or plot turns. Its almost like every chapter is a short story that Weisberger scribbled out for her writing group and then decided to slap them together and sell them as a book. Every single chapter ends with Andy deciding that despite all of her anxiety and internal debate she really does love her husband. Its disgustingly vapid.
She was fine. Its not her fault the book is a dud.
The baby. The husband. Neither are interesting and frankly contribute to Andy being an obnoxiously boring character. Oh and maybe the editor should have suggested including some, I don't know, revenge?
Fun, Addicting and Creative
So far Bumbee the mechanimal dog is my favorite!
Vieve the gifted 9 year old inventor. BUT Moira Quick does a fabulous job with ALL of the character voices!
Absolutely loved listening to this book! It is obviously teen fiction but is great for listening to in the car or while doing chores or cooking!
