Sandalyenizi kapın ve macera ve hayat dolu derslerle dolu İyi Oku için bekleyin. Bu, yazarın anne büyükannesinin sesiyle yazılmış gerçek bir hayat romanı. Lily, bağımsız ve cesur bir kadındı. Atları kırdı ve yarıştı, okula öğretti, bootlegged, bir eğitim alırken ve bir eş ve anne olarak bir uçak uçmayı öğrendi. Her hayal kırıklığı, baştan, iyi ve kötü zamanların içinde bir hayat dersi vardı. Hayatın zorluklarıyla cesaret ve güçle yüzleşmeyi umuyorum! Mükemmel bir kadın değildi, hatalar yaptı, kötü seçimler yaptı ve daha iyisini yapmaya çalıştı. Bu bir Büyük Kitap Kulübü okumak olurdu!
Tüm zamanların en büyük kadın yazarı tarafından tüm zamanların en büyük kitaplarından biri. Elizabeth Bennet ve Bay Darcy'nin bir araya geldiği kadar az sayıda karakter mükemmel bir şekilde yazılmıştır. Her kadın hayatında en az bir kez Gurur ve Önyargı okumalıdır! Sizi yukarı kaldıracak ve asla geri dönmek istemeyeceğiniz bir yere çırpacaktır.
Wow, this girl in the book has bad luck! I really liked this book. A lot of unexpected stuff happened. Sometimes James Patterson books can get predictable but not this one. A good, quick read.
John McCann is an A type workaholic trying to overcompensate for a deprived childhood. He recognizes, after suffering migraines and a recommendation from his doctor, that he has to make a change if he wants to continue to live a long healthy life. John expects his effort to slow down to last a year. As we all know, expectations are what we have, not what we always get. John leases a book store that comes with the original owners son, Jaime who is a real charmer and a resident transient, Dave that uses the 2nd hand book corner to escape into books everday. It doesn't take long but does take effort for Jaime to awaken the compassionate soul in John. To force John to see past the dirt and circumstances to the suffering human in his store. Each day, John cares more and each day Dave reaches out a bit farther. Some days its enough and some days it isn't. Loving is always a challenge. Loving a man with emotional stability issues is far from easy. John spends the book doing the best he can (and not always the right thing, thank goodness) to actually reach out and make it possible for Dave to heal and in doing so, for Dave to heal John as well. The love scenes in this book are varied, from simple touches to wide grins to breakthroughs that are as simple, yet complex as unpacking a bag. Not over done and still erotic, the men make love in satisfying ways to both them and the reader and the story moves from one moment to the next with unexpected bouts of insight, joy and bittersweet for the characters and the reader. Although it doesn't bother me,this book shifts from one character POV to another quite often. I think I counted at least 5 different POV's in this book. I marked it down a star because the switch was not always as clear and seamless as it should be. I felt that it gave me more ability to understand character motivation and growth, but that style isn't everyone's cuppa. I was really touched by this book in a way that makes me think people as a whole stand a chance. (melodramatic I know, but I feel a little strung out after finishing this book and really do wish that all people had this much compassion for their fellow man)
