I am ONE for the Books and this is where my thoughts are shared. I enjoy reading with a passion. I see no issue in getting whisked away into the pages for hours, days, weeks, months at a time! Reading is a huge part of my life.
This was a cute and pleasurable novel. I knocked off a star because at times it just seemed a little too far fetched for me. It was a pleasurable and interesting read. There were several laugh out loud moments and some touching moments. Fannie was an interesting character and there was a bit of a twist at the end that I was not expecting. However, the ending had me like "Is that it?", which is why I knocked off another half star. Maybe I need to reread the ending.
This book was crazy!! It's not one of those books that's full of action but it is a mindF**k. The narrator was so unreliable, yet still he was interesting. I recommend this book but be prepared to not like anyone!! Old crazy ass family!! Except maybe Sergio...anyway I dont want to give away too much...check it out. Has anyone else read this? What'd you think?
OK... so I am on the fence about this book. I love the concept, however, there are wayyyyyyy too many characters. I am getting confused. Also there are switches between 1859 and 2010 and at this point in the novel they have no connection. It's almost like reading two different stories. I see where she is going but it is a little discombobulating and throwing me off. I keep having to stop and regroup and remember who is who, etc...too much work!
Now this is how you write a thriller!!! I am adding Jeffrey Deaver to my author's list. Reading this book was like watching a good suspense movie. The only reason that I rated it kind of low is that there were some slow moments that did could have been left out. Otherwise this book kept me on the edge of my seat; and just when I would start to get comfortable there would be another twist. I highly recommend it!
Until further notice...lol. I should stop making plans in advance...the day comes and I almost never feel like going especially if I'm into a good book, like now!!
