beni rahatsız eden tek kurgusal cinayet
tom robbins'i seviyorsanız ... bu daha da iyi!
Oldukça prosy - hepsi olmasa da. Bu şiirlerin çoğu için deli değildim, ama beni yakalayan anlar, ifadeler vardı. Çağdaş kültürün zenginliğini, otantik Amerikan deneyimini, kendi ergenliğimden, biraz acı verici olursa, yeniden ziyaret etmek için ilginç olan birçok sahnenin yeniden yaratılmasını takdir ediyorum. . . . "bilmediğimiz şeyi kaybettiğimizi." Bunu seviyorum: "Ölümün ötesinde trafik var." ("Eski Concord Mezarlığı" dan özellikle "$," "Orion" ve "Hatırlama, Huzur içinde" şiirlerini beğendim.
I enjoyed this sequel to Beautiful creatures. At times, I had to stop and re-read parts of their conversations because I wasn't sure who was talking, but other than that, it was a captivating read.
very good story that rings true. the story is about a girl growing up and finding her place in the world. the people in her life are so real, and i can "see" this small town for what is is ... and isn't. it's also about choices and how they (from the smallest to the biggest) affect our lives. the author had me rooting for them all, but when i had to shrug my shoulders and say "ah well, that's life" i didn't feel cheated either.
This is Roberts last book, published after she died. I get the feeling there was supposed to be more to it, because it seems a little incomplete. However, I've only read a couple of her other books and one I don't really remember well. The One Left Behind is the fairly straight-forward tale of a girl who is accidentally left alone in her house for a weekend by her large family. (Home Alone, much?) She encounters a kid and his little brother who are on the run from some bad men and helps them escape. Also, she had a twin sister who died and her uncle has schizophrenia. These last two are the elements that seem like they should have been developed more. Interestingly, the schizophrenic character is very realistic, as though the author has some first hand experience with a person living with that particular mental illness. The story climaxes and ends rather abruptly and there is no real twist involved. Mandy is a very sympathetic character and is well developed, although almost too introspective. No one else gets much dynamism to their character and I think that's what makes the book feel kind of flat. If you're looking for a good book by this author, try The Girl with the Silver Eyes.
I thought the lessons were hard to follow. This book is not for a beginner or novice rider. The way the book is written is more for someone who has already been in the training business, but is looking to go out on their own. I thought the author missed explaining to the reader the feel you should have while performing a lesson.
