I would love to know if this is an actual thing. Do grave robbers work in a tight secret group? Searching the obituaries for any sign of a "good dig"? Treasures and money with danger and sadness. The characters stories felt believable in a "6 Feet Under" kind of way. I felt bad for the main character's bullying because he didn't deserve it but I also see how it made him pro-active. Towards the end my heart was thumping so loud with the suspense, horror, and excitement of the villain and hero battle. I got to meet the author a few years back when this book was released and I wish I had read now when I met him because I would like to know more about the story.
I enjoy reading everything from Francesca Lia Block and this new book was great. I'm really getting into these writer retelling classics. The way Block portrayed her lead character and gender switching was very clever. Definitely give it a try.
Ok I know it's a ridiculous story premise but it was good for a laugh. terrible writing and worse reading. BUT you get what you pay for and it was a free give-away.
It's Jim Dale narrating!!! Enough said!
Magic, love, stem-punk feel with machines, human pawns, and illusions.
Really great. Had to watch the movie and wasn't too disappointed. What a great way to present zombie love with out the "dawn of the dead" gore.
I read it because everyone in the world had read it and it takes place in my hometown almost near my house. And I don't regret it! wonderful from start to finish. I was inspired to read about other darkly historic books on Chicago during this time period. I love it when I read a good historical fiction novel then delves me even further into history. I say give it a try if you haven't because I promise you..... you won't be disappointed either.
Filled with dark suspense and "The Walking Dead" feeling. You don't know who will survive in the end, surprises at every corner, and real mind-f*cking. You don't know who to trust. Everyone is looking for help but these teens are left to save them selves or die. Fantastic and I'm excited to see what's next for this author. I felt pulled in from the very beginning.
I have waited for a sinister spooky story set in the era when mystery, ghosts, government cover-up, and seers sparked society's entertainment. I couldn't stop listening. I wanted to know the rest. So excited there's a second book and anxiously waiting. Libba Bray has never failed and this is another notch for her better of wonderfulness. (yea wonderfulness!)
I know this is Bridget all grown-up but it was missing all the humor and wonderful goofiness I enjoyed when I read the 2 prior books. I my heart broke at so many times throughout this book and felt even though Fielding "wrapped" things up, I felt sad. And I miss Mark Darcy.
What a refreshing and wonderful take on "love" in our time. Two broken souls find love in all the strange ways. I really enjoyed the narrator's interpretation on the character, esp. Pat. Definitely will listen to it again.
