My mother raved about the movie, and I thought...this is going to be weepy and lame, BUT I could not have been MORE wrong. This was a fascinating book with great characters. Everyone is broken, but in VERY different ways. It went by SOO quick, and was definitely a page turner. If you are looking for something off your regular reading book list, I would highly recommend this one.
what a funny, unexpected pleasure. a must read. besides the food, the culture of cooking is all its own
totally, not what i expected...only about an hour spent on the murder and the rest on wrestling terms.
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.
