A non-thinking female. The story was so improbable and contained ridiculous coincidences. Ending was unsatisfying.
Less religious overtones. And a story that might have a stronger ring of truth to it. This was soooo farfetched.
Probably the ending. We never find out where the husband is or why he left or why he withdraws vast amounts of money. I think even the author couldn't stand the story anymore so she just ended it.
Interesting, memorable, delicious!
Donna Tartt's The Secret History has some similar elements but I think this book is her grand slam.
Any scene with Boris. He was complicated, philosophical and unpredictable.
How a split decision made during a crisis changed the course of many lives.
I can only hope Donna Tartt gets the recognition she deserves for writing a spectacular story. Additionally, the narrator, David Pittu, added another critical dimension to the book.
The story in this book is soo implausible that it's ridiculous. Farfetched and sappy. The techniques used for radio and/or telephone communication were unnecessary and distracting. The voices used to mimic children all seemed to have a lisp. The accent for the father was unexplained. This was a complete waste of time.
This book was mischaracterized ad Comtemporary Literature. Wrong. This is chick lit. Get it right so I do not have to suffer any further. Ms. Hannah is hardly in the same class as John Irving.
When both the leading female characters end up n love with their respective Prince Charming's = Chick Lit.!!!
The narrator had superb pacing. Of course, he also had the beautiful prose of John Irving to work with.
A story of an unusual and fascinating friendship.
This book is on my favorites list. A book that can enjoyed over & over again.
