Şaşırtıcı bir şekilde, kitabı ve film adaptasyonunu eşit derecede sevdim, ancak kitapta tasvir edilen Emma, Gwenyth Paltrow'un tasvirinden çok daha az vapid. (Austen / Classics)
A great writer, I really enjoy his books and this one is a good one with a some spice to it. Focused on the North Shore of Long island is the story of two men, one a Wall Street lawyer and the other a Mafia don. A story that keeps your attention all the way to the end. Enjoy!
We should teach this to high school kids, not the crap that is normally taught. Biased, but in a completely necessary way.
This is a really fun read about a reporter who gets tied up in a murder investigation. The main character, Annie Seymour, is very real, likeable and funny. Many of the side characters are quirky and entertaining. As a former resident of New Haven, I can vouch for the accuracy with which Karen captures the mood of this unusual city. I'm looking forward to reading more of her books.
Before I read this book, I saw a review stating that this book was a huge disappointment when compared to Hornbacher's first book, Wasted. The reviewer went so far as to say that she couldn't even get through this book. So based on that, my expectations weren't too high. And maybe because of that, I enjoyed this book and thought it was a quick read. But I do have to warn anyone reading this book that it's pretty heavy at times - it's about how the remaining members of a family deal with the father's suicide. It's told from three different perspectives: the mother, the son, and the daughter. It's not like Faulkner's work, where you have to read all of the perspectives in order to grasp the whole story. There isn't a lot of "plot overlap" between the sections. Overall, I liked this book because it was raw and realistic.
