No. The ending has a really bizarre twist which kind of ruins it for another read.
Some of the writing is exceptional. However, it is also very self-aware. A 'writerly' text almost more than a 'readerly' one.
The writing. Neil Gaiman is an excellent author. He also has great insight into what it was like to be a kid.
This is a short book but a little gem.
I have recommended it several times. I first read it many, many years ago, but the based-on-reality story is still compelling and inspiring.
The heroine being able to survive the winter in West Virginia with very little food and virtually no cover.
Yes, and I did (Rose Garden) but it was not as good.
This was the best by Kearsley I have read.
Unfortunately, none of the scenes were remarkable enough to stand out.
Drink a glass of wine?
It was pure pulp, but if that's what you need at the moment, then it was time well spent.
Nothing really remarkable---just lots of fun.
Someone with a proper English accent!
Dress like a tart? Pack silver stakes? Nope.
Colin Firth narration.
This book was terribly disappointing. Many reviewers claimed it was funny. It just made me groan it was so trite, so poorly written, and so not funny!
This book was a huge waste of money. Yes, you should judge a book by its cover. I should have been forewarned by the title that it would be bad, but let other reviewers' comments on its humor sway me. Bad writing is not funny.
