"Hateful characters - will not disappoint"
A delight to find a book that is gender read to keep the context. The characters are dreadful and have no redeeming features. It will be interesting to see how the sister and parents are portrayed by Hollywood in the forthcoming film as they have strong and definite parts in the books along with Jeff and Freya(?), the criminals that Amy meets whilst on the run. It was not a scary book in the true sense of the world but this kept me on track for a couple of weeks listening and would certainly read (listen) to this again and watch the film when it comes out.
This broke the duck for me after a run of listening to books that I couldnt really get into for some unknown reason (as I have been as member since forever!) and keen to download my next book. Will search out another from this author.
"A Visit from the Goon Squad"
A surprisingly interesting book which kept my interest. It is a collection of short stories which link to the key characters so each can be read independently of the other. The last chapter was a little fast so I listened to it again. All in all, I would listen to this again although not a desert island choice.
I was surprised by the ending, not in a pleasant way. There were so many twists and turns to this book that my interest stayed but almost as many impossibilities and unexplored relationships.
I did listen in one sitting though and it was an extremely thought provoking topic. In all, well worth the download, just a little unexpected in some places.
