This book is what I imagine is called chick lit (a phrase I detest but understand). It's an easy read and the author includes some humor in her writing. I'd recommend it as something for a plane ride or sitting watching a kid's football game. It's not a great book, but it's somewhat entertaining and easy to read.
Ugh. I like a psychological thriller, but this was just stupid. It started out with some promise, but it quickly deteriorated. The plot was just over-the-top contrived, and the writing was that of a high school literary student. On the plus side, it was quick to read. Now on to something (hopefully) better.
I really enjoy this series. Inspector Gamache is a clever but practical guy, and the author writes rather "tongue in cheek" in some parts which adds to the enjoyment. The books in this series are easy and quick to read. All told, I'm a fan of this author and this character.
I had read What Alice Forgot and liked it (somewhat), but I didn't enjoy this book much. To be frank, I'm not much of a fan of what is normally termed as chick lit (a phrase I find offensive), and to me this seemed to fall in that genre. I liked the idea of the book, but it was just a little too silly for my taste. Also, it was too long. Maybe it would not have seemed so long had I liked it more. But others may enjoy the writer's style and sense of frivolity.
I really enjoyed this book, especially the fact that it was told from the boy's point of view. I found the plot to be interesting and thought provoking. It made me wonder what I would do had I been in Adele's position.
I thought this plot was way too contrived. Most of this stuff would never happen, and the ending is particularly unlikely. I had never read anything by this author and probably won't bother with any others of hers. Not a favorite.
