I haven't read a Stephen King book in quite a while. I had pretty much given up, as it were. They were getting too, I'm not sure what. But this one is FABULOUS. Don't be put off by the over 800 pages-it goes by quickly. I was amazed at how much I liked this book. Who wouldn't want to go back in time and right a wrong? But what happens then? So well done. The Kennedy assassination has always interested me. Did Oswald really act alone? Was he a Lone Gunman? King's theories are fascinating-I haven't see the miniseries, but might just to see how they handled it. Great book-give it a read!
The stories of two children in Europe during WWII-one a young blind girl, and the other a German boy-told separately, but they do eventually come together. Haunting is the best word I can come up with.
For the first time in a long time, I actually got a little misty eyed at the end of this book. I liked that the dog is the narrator-he is probably the most likable character in the book. This was a quick read-and even though I cried a little at the end, I enjoyed it.
Enjoyed it-what happens when you you find out not only is your husband dead, u found murdered in a call girls apartment??? Not sure if I would have gone to all the trouble that Susie Gersten does to find her husband's killer(considering where he was found)-but it moved quickly and kept my interest.
I felt this story was quite sad, really. Rebecca Davitch realizes that maybe she is living the wrong life-but how to change it? Set in Baltimore, at the end of the 20th century, she is a woman who tries to please everyone, especially her family. When she starts to have doubts about the way her life has gone,---- *SPOILER ALERT* ---- she tracks down an old 'friend' to see if she did in fact make a mistake way back when. I think all, or at least most, 'middle-aged' women will identify with her- what if I'd done it differently?? Lots of characters,lots of family turmoil,a quick read.
I found this book to be the best of hers I've read since 'What Came Before He Shot Her'. Lots of characters, as usual, several twists and turns, as usual. I always like the back and forth between Lynley and Havers. I will say the ending caught me a little by surprise. It's nice to have Elizabeth George back.
