Brooklyn was a very interesting, entertaining and emotional story. I would love to read more, possibly Return to Brooklyn???
To many details in introducing characters/introduction went on to long. The end picked up though.
I expected more self help and less stories. Although the stories are supposed to be examples, the didn't actually cover the lesson on how to change habbits which I was looking for.
Twenties Girl was a lot of fun. Of course parts of the story was make believe but that made it even more fun. Don't listen to the readers who wrote negative feedback. I almost listened to them, but thought I will try it. There is no screaming. I wanted the book to continue, maybe a return of the Twenties girl???
With out giving anything away, something horrendoeus happened to a gentleman at the president of the colleges house but the consequences or inquiry were just ignored by the author. Did the author maybe want to mention something more and ran out of space???
It is unbelieveable for so many misgivings to happen to one person.
The reader of this story was very much an over actor. I found myself rolling my eyes at times.
With the reputation of this author, I expected more.
This book was so much fun. I found myself laughing out loud many times. Honestly I did not want to stop listening when I had other things to do. I keep looking for something similar to this book, but still cannot find anything comparable.
Anita Shreve's best novel was Fortunes Rock, then the couple that followed. The last three novels were fair, but Rescue was the worst.
Shreve never went deep into any character. Threw a character in for a brief second, killed the character off, and never went into how the person with the character that died felt, never had the survivor morn. This is just one example of how Shreve, a one time great story teller, but has become a very poor story teller.
I don't think I will give Shreve another chance. A waist of my time and money.
