If you like his standup, you will enjoy the book. I hope he is as nice as he paints himself to be.
I was pleasantly surprised by book 3. There was so much going and they left us hanging on book 2. I did not want to suffer through the end of Alphas or the last episode of Lost. (nerds get it.) This really tied everything up and in a plausible way. With that, the whole series is worth a read. A new twist on the whole mystical creatures genre (vampires, witches, etc.)
You know those random thoughts that bounce around in your head? Mindy Kaling has put them down in this book and makes you laugh at them. Not just laugh, but stare at them under the microscope, so you realize that everyone has similar random thoughts and those thoughts are RIDICULOUS. None of us are as funny, dumb, fat, skinny or bright as we thought we were and we basically have no idea where we will end up. Just enjoy the ride and LAUGH.
You know that moment in Sixth Sense (spoiler alert) where you find out he is DEAD?! This book feels like that from beginning to the end. Every moment you are going: What?! Are you kidding me?! He/She did what?! It is a fantastic read. BUT, LITTLE BUT.....I felt really let down by the hero(ine) at the end. You just wanted to scream NO into the speakers, slap (it, no pronouns) around and say: You have GOT TO BE FREAKING KIDDING ME??!!! It was part of the twist and that is what makes the book good...
The moral premise of this book was interesting and thought provoking....BUT, BIG BUT....The outcome was TOO perfect. No hitches, no messes, just wrapped up in a bow and TA DA! I LOVE, LOVE happy, closed-up-tight endings, but this ending was so awesome that you expected everyone to be climbing in and out of bouncy houses and sliding down gigantic slides with glee!
Well, I had high hopes but alas...This is NO Dragon Tattoo. It was like it started as a good idea, but then he got tired of writing by the end of the book. I know that this is the first of a series, but i think a book in a series should stand on its own. I have read better.
I knew Manson was sick, but this painted him sicker than I ever IMAGINED. I tend to read fiction and only sprinkling in non-fiction occasionally. This is defintely worth the non-fiction selection. Very captivating and uterly entertaining, in a VERY sick way...
This is great series. Quick, smart and very entertaining! Highly recommended if Agatha Christie is a little too HIGH BROW for you.
I read Silver Linings and this was a total surprise. It was so sad, but at the same time AMAZING and CRAZY and sometimes even FUN. The book description does not do the story justice.
This was a great story. I love that they give you all of the clues, so you can figure it out while reading the story. Also, there is comic relief. The only reason I gave the story 4 stars was because I thought the story had some slow parts, but overall it was VERY GOOD!
If you drift for just a moment, you will totally lose track. There are so many people, relatives, passerbys, officers, etc. The performance was great. I would only select this book if you are going to give your full and undivided attention.
