I was not very impressed with this book. It jumps around too much making it hard to get into and follow.Not even halfway thru I had to just put it away. It has a good story line if it was written differently, in my opinion.
I enjoyed this book. It had some more depth to it then just mindless reading but still easy quick reading.
excellent, really remarkable!
I enjoyed this book very much. I liked the quirky way it was written. It's kind of how my thoughts flow...LOL. It's one I think I would enjoy as an audio book if the right actor was reading it...one who could pick up all the quirky sarcastic-ness behind even the character's pain. Not the most indepth book, but definitely enjoyable.
A bit strange but in a way I can't describe
A great beach readDiana , a 30 something city professional moves out to , Pine Barrens, a rural corner of New Jersey. There far from the city she is free from an irritating job, an ex-boyfriend , She renews and heal in Pine Barrens
Dianna's life is total blown apart when her Mother, Father and brother are killed by a drunk driver in a head on crash while on their way to meet her brother's fiancee's parents. Although Dianna tries to carry on with her life she falls into a deep depression, quits her job and heads out of town for an unknown destination. As she drives, she is distracted and hits an older woman on a dirt bike. Although the woman only has some scratches, Dianna's car is undrivable and she ends up staying with the woman she hits and becomes involved with her families life. The characters are very entertaining and the book is a quick read.
We follow the main character as she spends a year dealing with an unimaginable grief. She goes through the many stages of grief, but still holds onto herself and eventually finds a way out of despair. Through the book she escapes and goes on an adventure that truly leads to her ultimate healing.
This book was awful. I can usually find something redeeming about a book, and can enjoy it for the guilty pleasure, if nothing else, but this book was creepy (and not intentionally). The characters were not sympathatic, and I found myself wondering why anyone would care about what happened to them.
But, I'm sure you'll want to find out for yourself, soplease order it, so I can get rid of my copy!
I had higher hopes for this book, especially since it was suggested to me by my Mom. It wasn't bad, just not what I'd hoped for. I never quite understood the main characters in the end the way I'd hoped, never really connected with them.
A poignant and heartfelt debut novel about the mysterious currents of love and loss.
Diana Moore, a 30-something professional woman in New York City, is brooding over her irritating dot-com job and rumors about her ex-lover's beautiful new girlfriend when the unimaginable happens: a terrible accident that turns her life upside down.
Seeking refuge from her well-meaning friends, Diana heads out of the city and ends up in the Pine Barrens, a rural corner of New Jersey, and an oasis of simple living and cranberries. There, in a place where nobody knows her, Diana is temporarily free--free to take a hard look at her life and to begin to explore avenues of change and renewal.
