As usual, Molly Harper incorporates so many pithy comments and observations in one line after another.. It takes a second listen to follow her bouncing words of satire and wit once they are set in motion..
The main character, Miranda, has that perfect blend of pessimistic optimism. She looks forward to better times, but learns to cope with the disastrous detours along the way.
Amanda Ronconi is the best at potraying modern, intelligent, flawed and funny women. She has a great sense of timing, especially as characters interact and respond to each other's peculiarities.
The book was simply hilarious. It made me laugh and cringe all at the same time. It leaves you waiting to find out what else could go wrong and still hoping that nothing does..
I hope there is a sequel to this book. I would like to see how the main characters Miranda and Colin develop and how they interact wtih the other folks in Half Moon Hollow. I wish that there were a bit more tension between these two characters and more explanation of Colin's attraction to Miranda. The ending seemed to rush their relationship too much given their clear differences.
If you are into fantasy and can take a plot that departs from reality and cruises into ridiculous, then this is the book for you. The main character came off as a petulant teenager. This was just plain disturbing given her desire to learn about ménage.
The plot was just plain dumb. It is hard to care about characters or respond to what they are doing if all them are acting like stupid people. Kimber, the main character sets out to learn about ménage while keeping her virginity for her rock star boyfriend. Too unrealistic!
I'm not sure. The voice used for the main character, Kimber, made her sound like a child which was just gross when she was talking about sex. The character might also have been a chipmunk which was equally gross. The least gross alternative was that the main character was a little person. That last alternative would have been fine, but probably not what she was aiming for.
This book bored and disgusted me. It was way too implausible and the sex was so-so.
I have no idea why this book got so many positive reviews.
