Gives you insights into what British settlers experienced, some humor, some sad, good description of dynamics of mother/daughter and siblings. Is the Mother stable? Yet we all have someone like this and move through life. Pace is a bit slow, but good for long runs.
To pass the time, doesn't grab you but does entertain you.
Discovering the tree, talking on the veranda
Maybe a movie, definitely Meryl Streep, maybe Judy Dench both have the underlying "iron" with a shade of crazy in some of their performances.
I had to make it through the early part - a main character I could despise, then learn to love. It is a good story and Jen is humorous as always. thanks for making me laugh.
I'm still not sure I understand all the science, but it was a good mixture of the science and the struggles faced as each scientist tried to build a support for his research. Einstein was truly a marvel - 50 years ahead of what we could test in the lab. Brilliant beyond belief. I took theory of relativity and quantum theory in college - love the fact he had pictures he referenced. I like the insights into the various personalities, competing theories and politics that played into it. thanks for a good suggestion and helping to keep my commute something much more than a boring ride.
The title is misleading and little about running in it. I empathize with the people in the story, horrible beyond my imagination what was done to them.
it did inspire me to know that nothing I have faced comes close to what they survived. my life, my running, no matter how hard pales - the human spirit can be so very strong - that inspires..
Stating the obvious too frequently is boring. the female lead screeches at her husband "watch out for.." about 50 times in the first several chapters. "I see it" is his reply. She reminded me of one of the James Bond girls who always yelled "James, James..." as he saved her.
Passing the time on long runs, but I can only take so much, then switch to Pandora or something else.
I'm not finished with the book, hopefully it improves. I'm very patient.
Storyline and history combined
Never knew what crazy thing they'd end up in next.
Doc cold then Kate Sheridan
Long but worth it. You really know characters by the end.
