DNF of 123. At over a hundred pages into the book I should at bare minimum give a damn about the main character. However she, along with the rest of the story, were so incredibly dull I couldn‘t in good conscience continue. I tried.

I‘m hesitant to pan a book written in a foreign language with possible questionable translation, but I only enjoyed two of these stories. The women in this book were very one dimensional and acted simply as a mirror of the feelings of the men in the stories. It wasn‘t a great collection, but I did like Kirby Heybourne‘s narration.

My son has a Dr Seuss day tomorrow and target and Walmart only sell toddler sizes. So I bought some random men's small shirt on clearance and made him one. 😂🤷🏼‍♀️ he helped though by drawing the Grinch #itried

Oh Tom Hanks, you are such a great actor and director and I adore you, but I just can't finish your book! I'd be willing to give it a shot by reading but audio book is not the way to go. There is absolutely no indication of when going from one chapter to the next and it's hard to follow. Love how you sneak a typewriter into each story but that's it. Also, you trying to sound like a sexy woman is off-putting and kinda creepy. #Itried #dnf #bail

I loved the first 30%, and then a thing happened and I was irritated at that and various other things throughout the rest of it. I'm starting to think that this kind of paranormal just really isn't my thing. Good vs evil, angels vs demons, light vs dark, etc can be so boring sometimes.

wanderinglynn Was the thing that irritated you that they changed Joanna to look like Olivia? Because I just finished this and that was weird & bugged me throughout the rest of the book. (edited) 4y
SarahSaysRead @wanderinglynn OMG YES!! That was so weird, I hated it. 4y
wanderinglynn I‘m glad I‘m not the only one that was disturbed by that. 4y

Maybe it's my lack of Knowledge of Russia's Folklore or the long winded-ness of the author but I wasn't all that interest and it seemed to drag on. So I gave up on page 106. Life's too short to force yourself to read books you aren't enjoying!

I'm not saying I'll never pick it up in the future but as of now I'm just not into this book.

I finally had to admit I didn‘t want to read this anymore. The books moves between several different character perspectives and none of it felt cohesive enough to carry the plot forward. Carl Hiaasen is a master of putting characters on a stage and letting them wander into each other, this felt like the opposite of that. #dnf #itried

Not distracting enough for me as I think of all my friends & family waiting for Irma to leave. #itried
