Yarı yolda bitti ve bu sabah yeni başladı [yaz]! Bu gece bitirdikten sonra muhtemelen yarın tekrar okuyacağım. Bu şimdiye kadar okuduğum ilk Didion ve söylemeliyim, hoş bir aroma bırakır ve beni daha fazla okumak için heyecanlandırır. İyi bir yazar, hatta harika ve LA'nın bu resmini hala bu güzel çekiciliği olan bu trajik, ıssız yer olarak yazıyor: EVET. LA böyle bir şey, bu yüzden diğer insanlar nefret edince LA SEVİYORUM! Bu yüzden kurgu yazmak için Los Angeles'a taşınıyorum!
The first book I ever read, the one that started my love of books.
Great beginning. Good writer. Hard to believe story. I had a problem with the parents decent into selfeshness at the expense of their children.
Over the years Spindle Cove has been a place where parents/ guardians send the ill behaved or physically weak women in their lives to recuperate or just get them out of their hair. Spindle Cove has become a haven for those ladies who don’t quite measure up to society’s standards. It is now known as Spinster Cove to outsiders. Susanna came to Spindle Cove years ago and has since made it her home and her mission to help out other young women. She is looked to as a leader of this little community and she likes the way things are in her life. When an old friend of her father’s shows up and adds too much testosterone to the estrogen rich environment, Susanna plans on fighting to maintain the status quo. This was probably one of the best historical romances I have read. The storyline was unique and the characters weren’t picture perfect, but colorful and wonderfully human. The romance had all the heat that I love and the characters were sizzling with sexual tension. But what I really loved about this book was the humor. I ba ha ha’d and laughed out loud so many times while reading, this book had some extremely hilarious moments. The wit the characters display, the personalities and the flaws of the people, the snappy dialogue and the refreshingly funny story made this book easily one of my favorite reads this year. There is one scene where a married lady who has sought refuge at Spindle Cove after discovering her husband and marriage aren’t all that she hoped they would be, recites a poem. It is one of the most cleverly written scenes and the poem itself had me nearly choking on my coffee. The author’s delivery was perfect. That scene alone is worth reading this book, it was so freakin’ funny! I can’t wait to see where the rest of this series goes, and I am going to check out this author’s other works. She made me a fan! Cherise Everhard, August 2011
