Kokusunu koklayabilseydim muhtemelen aynı şeyi yapardım. Ve bu korkutucu bir düşünce.
Bu kitapta annemin Georgia, Gay ve Wesleyan College'a gidecekleri hikayeleri canlandı.
Annie Colwater finds herself in the moment no woman ever wants to hear ... "I'm in love with someone else" being uttered by their husband of any number of years. This book is the tale of how Annie fell into a deep despair but somehow came out the other side knowing who she was. Something then happens that could change Annie right back into who she was before those fateful words ... but will she? I love the tales that Kristin Hannah weaves. The characters are believable, the storylines flow. I wished there was more of what happened "afterwards" at the end but sometimes you can't have everything.
One of my favs!
Uh, I had a really long review written for this story, but I lost Internet connection and lost it, so here's what you get. Plot: Good concept, shaky execution. Good dual narrative, distinctive voices. Slow pacing. Characters: Two main characters complex but not as interesting as Carly. Secondary characters okay. Ending: Fast-paced. Completely shocking but somewhat making sense. Recommendation: Possibly. Yes if you like YA mysteries.
Michael J. Fox delivers "Always Looking Up" with the same heart and full force emotion as "Lucky Man." It's amazing how optimistic and full of hope he is and how dedicated he remains to his Foundation. Lucky Man focused more on Fox's pre-PD life and his relationship with his wife, but Always Looking Up reflects back on the last 10 years of his life, by breaking his novel into four themes: Work, Politics, Faith, Family. The section in which Fox talks about the Rush Limbaugh incident is particularly strong...and appauling. I didn't think I needed another reason to abhor Limbaugh! But the grace and professionalism with which Fox handled the situation is admirable. Fox also takes a few chapters to share personal stories about two of his heroes: Christopher Reeve and his life after the horse riding accident and Muhammad Ali, who also suffers from PD. Both chapters are full of emotion and also very inspiring. I think Fox puts it best with, "You suffer the blow, but you capitalize on the opportunity left open in its wake."
