Carrie Soto Is Back
Carrie Soto Is Back | Taylor Jenkins Reid
In this powerful novel about the cost of greatness, a legendary athlete attempts a comeback when the world considers her past her prime--from the New York Times bestselling author of Malibu Rising, Daisy Jones & The Six and The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo. Carrie Soto is fierce, and her determination to win at any cost has not made her popular. But by the time she retires from tennis, she is the best player the world has ever seen. She has shattered every record and claimed twenty Slam titles. And if you ask Carrie, she is entitled to every one. She sacrificed nearly everything to become the best, with her father as her coach. Javier--a former champion himself--has trained her since the age of two. But six years after her retirement, Carrie finds herself sitting in the stands of the 1994 US Open, watching her record be taken from her by a brutal, stunning player named Nicki Chan. At thirty-seven years old, Carrie makes the monumental decision to come out of retirement and be coached by her father for one last year in an attempt to reclaim her record. Even if the sports media says that they never liked the Battle-Axe anyway. Even if her body doesn't move as fast as it did. And even if it means swallowing her pride to train with a man she once almost opened her heart to: Bowe Huntley. Like her, he has something to prove before he gives up the game forever. In spite of it all: Carrie Soto is back, for one epic final season. In this riveting and unforgettable novel, Taylor Jenkins Reid tells her most vulnerable, emotional story yet.

This book is about the greatest female tennis player and her comeback. It was also about love, loss, family and ambition. I played competitively through college and played 4 x a week into my late 30s, and TJR did the tennis writing so well and technically accurate. If you aren‘t a tennis fan it still would be compelling I believe. This book felt like it was written for me. Thank you! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Did some nighttime outdoor reading while Casey scrounged for shards of the treat he chewed on earlier. CARRIE SOTO is my least favourite of the TJR books I‘ve read so far, mostly because the structure doesn‘t quite serve the story early on, but the relationships build really well and the tennis is exciting for anyone who loves a good sports novel (whether or not they love tennis). By the end, I was so invested that I couldn‘t put it down.

This was the year that I finally went to the US Open. We missed Serena but did get to see Tiafoe which was exciting. That put me in the mood to read Carrie Soto is back. TJR did a fabulous job of putting us in the head of Carrie, coming out of retirement to keep her record of Grand Slams alive. The writing was fast paced, just like watching a match. But it was the relationship with her father in particular that gave this book its heart. 🎾❤️

I really enjoyed this novel about an elite tennis player, the greatest player of her generation, who comes out of retirement when a younger player equals her record of Grand Slam wins. The author has drawn Carrie‘s character well, giving is a seemingly unlikeable character, hard and driven, but hinting at a a deeper need that the character has to learn to understand.

Wait, am I actually a sports person?! Carrie‘s energy left me feeling exhilarated, as if I myself could slay someone in a beautiful game of tennis. (I have never played or watched tennis in my life.) My adrenaline was pumping and my tears were flowing! It‘s such a riveting story of fathers and daughters, ambition, fear, sexism, aging, pressure, and perfection. ⬇️

I was surprisingly engrossed in the tennis for someone who knew little about the game. I liked that Carrie was unapologetically driven to win. It's not seen as proper for women, therefore she was known as The Bitch. Really, this was a feel good book.

Carrie Soto is the tennis GOAT in this 90s-set comeback story. Highly anticipated, but really different than the author‘s previous novels I‘ve read — Daisy Jones, Malibu, and Evelyn Hugo. The entire book is about tennis, including individual sets, practicing, and even the medium through which each of the characters relate to one another. It‘s a testament to TJR‘s skill that I enjoyed the novel about something I care little about! 🎾

My favorite TJR book to date! This started off a little slow for me and Carrie Soto and Carrie Soto is a difficult character to like. She is a bit robotic and cold, And doesn't really care what anyone else thinks. 6 years after her retirement and, after shattering every record and claiming 20 grand slam titles, carry attempts a come back. And she comes back with her father as her coach once again. As the story develops (cont in comments)

TheHeartlandBookFairy we see a softer more human side of Carrie Soto. Before I knew it I went from ho hum on this book to can't put it down! Anyone who has ever competed at any level oh well love this book! Reading it while they're there is a Anyone who has ever competed at any level oh well love this book! Reading this during tennis season just lent authenticity to this book. That along with the announcement of a long time tennis great retiring, really made this book feel real, current, and relevant. Vent. I absolutely love the story, loved how the character of Carrie developed, and loved the surprising outcomes that you don't really expect. Keep waiting, you're going to fall in love with this book, Love wins 😉 2w

Despite the controversy that this book is causing, l really liked it. I especially liked the ending. I‘m not a huge tennis fan, but the fact that this book revolves around tennis didn‘t distract from it. I did the audio version, and feel that the multiple readers were excellent. I‘ve read several books by this author, and feel this is one of her best. I recommend it.

Taylor Jenkins Reid is the unrivaled queen of writing strong female characters who make no apologies about who they are, and Carrie Soto is another example of this. This book sucked me in immediately. I cannot even count the times I said the following out loud whilst reading: "Hell yeah", "Get 'em Carrie", "You've got this". There may have been occasional fist pumping pauses as well.

3.5 ⭐️ I was so ready to love the new TJR book, but was ultimately underwhelmed. The full cast audiobook production was excellent, the cover sexy & on point for the subject matter, and the premise had so much promise. Sadly, I never really connected emotionally with Carrie as a main character. Her ambition and professional drive is her main trait, and it‘s only toward the end that she embraces the human connection she‘s been missing in her life.

Kimberlone The book unfairly suffers by comparison to Evelyn Hugo and Daisy Jones. I still enjoyed it, but Carrie Soto is just not as complex and interesting a character as the leads of TJR‘s more celebrated books. 3w
Beatlefan129 I‘m listening to this right now and feeling much the same way. Carrie is just so difficult to connect with especially compared to TJR‘s other lead characters like Daisy Jones or Evelyn Hugo 3w

Eh. This wasn‘t my favorite TJR. The tennis parts were fine, but Carrie was a very one note character to me. She wanted to win. That was 90% of what she cared about; she wasn‘t very complex. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Carrie is a master of tennis. But when an upstart threatens to take away her record of 20 grand slams, Carrie decides to return to professional tennis in her late 30s. With her dad as her coach, can she win another slam? The #audiobook is well done.

Megabooks Obviously reading my other review, too, it is clear I like character-driven fiction, and while Carrie is the main focus of the book, I‘d argue that it‘s as much about the march through tennis season as Carrie tries to rack up a win. If you hate tennis, this book is NOT for you! Lots of tennis talk! 3w
TheLudicReader I will be giving this a miss. I really didn‘t like Malibu Rising (lots of one-note characters in that, too) so I can‘t imagine liking this any better. 3w
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick I'm not excited for this one. It was in the window of our local bookshop and just last night I made a similar assessment of Carrie from her small part in Malibu Rising. I think I'll borrow it or wait for a cheap ebook deal. 3w

The best tennis player in the world comes out of retirement when her record is broken. With her adoring and equally driven father (a once famous tennis player in his own right) as her coach, 37 year old Carrie Soto, in the face of sexism and ageism, sets out to reclaim her title.

I have to hand it to TJR. She has created a brusque character, whom I can‘t help but root for, in a setting I couldn‘t care less about, and yet, I was riveted!

This is classic TJR. With historical characters that feel so real you want to Google them. This is about a tennis phenom and her coach father. She is not a terribly likable person, yet the author has us rooting for her, and her father is wonderful. The ending was predictable so that knocks this down a little for me. However, a great read that I could not stop listening to. 4⭐️

I anticipate TJR books long before my pre-order arrives at my doorstep on publishing day. I knew this one was heavy on tennis, and since my knowledge of the game is limited I was wary my interest in the story would wain. But I loved it - TJR put me in the head of a fictional elite athlete, and I was fascinated by the ride.

Honestly, I‘m not sure what I was expecting but this wasn‘t it. I did enjoy the audio and the story was entertaining but it was a bit too heavy on the game of tennis and less about Carrie Soto. It screams ESPN sport documentary on the life & career of the Williams‘ sisters. If you know this I think it will help with expectations. I don‘t regret using an Audible credit - multicast narration was great!!

peaknit I thought it was a sequel to Malibu Rising until I started it last night. I just saw the movie about the Williams‘ sisters and it reminds of that so far. 1mo

I wanted to like this, but the more I read this and listened to the conversation surrounding this book from the BIPOC community, the more uncomfortable I feel and I can't support this book. I really wanted to like this book, but TJR's choice to make the main character Latina makes this book problematic. This is a problem that the author has been criticized for before and I am baffled as to why she and her publishers chose to do it again #netgalley

Kudos for Jenkins Reid for writing a book that revolves around tennis that was thoroughly entertaining to someone who is not a fan. She has expertly captured the work and drive needed to excel at something with a character that is not well liked by many of the other characters and sometimes this reader. There is also a wonderful father daughter relationship and a bit of romance. I might just need to watch a few tennis games now. I gave it 4/5.

Wow! I am not a sport fan but this had me absolutely gripped. Jenkins Reid once again creates a crediable, female voice. It takes an accomplished author to write well in the first person and for it not to grate especially when the protagonist is deliberately drawn to be abrasive.

Thank you Netgalley for the opportunity to read this title in advance.
