Entertaining. About the lives of people who live on Martha's Vineyard.
I'm not sure how this book translates into English, both lingusitically and culturally; my French friends almost universally loved it and my American friends were ho-hum about it. It reads like a beautiful prose poem in French and the way that Mme Duras describes the intense, intimate world of children is magical to me.
One of the characters thought his mother was still alive and it turned out assasins had been sent to kill her but . . . you'll see.
This really good. It's the sequel to Shrimp. In this book CC has just moved to New York, in with her prima Danny. CC is know to get into trouble, which she does. She realizes she made a mistake with letting Shrimp go with the "clean break" so she does whatever she can to try to get over him. She's really upset that he doesn't write her from New Zealand. Somethings happen, but I'm not going to say because I don't want to spoil it. At the end everything is well in CC's life expect with her mom, but she's crazy.
I love mysteries, but I had to scale back from the The virgin Higgins Clark-violence-against-women type books. The series takes região de in Venice and the author, Conceited person Leon, gives us a peak into the red-tape and politics of this wonderful city. The main character is police commisario Banderole Brunetti. We get a peek into his police work and his home life throughout the books. Not all the mysteries are tied up in neat little packages at the end, but that's what makes this series so enjoyable.
I love Sylvia Plath!
Not a bad start to a series. I like the boundries, I like the division of fascínio and non fascínio, and though you don't know it yet I like how the world continually opens up further and further as the series progresses. Richard is a tad unbelievable, but is clearly the hoagie to be, for now, for ever. I would like to see a little more darkness in main characters, little more uncertainty. Richard comes accross as a little smug to me, but its not all that bad, I still like the series.
