This wasn't for me. An #unpopularopinion, but I found this limp, cheesy, and riddled with cliches.

rubyslippersreads I just read this for one of my IRL book clubs, and it wasn‘t my cup of tea either (although everyone else liked it). 😏 3w

I was underwhelmed. I think it's because I feel like the "shocker" was that the story was told in reverse, and not the actual story itself (which was also slightly confusing?).

Heatherfeather @Reagan-reads disappointing. Felt like there was promise 4w

Echhhhh this reading slump. So I think this was a victim of "just not right for me but probably really perfect for someone else." Pros: the writing, the apple tree concept. Cons: the unoriginal story, the Emma "plotline", the fact it was unchallenging and watered down

Putting this one down at 157 pages. It's dry. It's boring. It's a list of facts and the facts aren't all that interesting. Unfortunately.

Lea Agreed. Wasn‘t into it and it was all over the place. 2mo

Probably an #unpopularopinion, but I just didn't enjoy this for the most part, and I'm super bummed about it! I think it's because I listened to the audiobook and I found the narrative scattered and frenetic and eventually tiresome. I will watch the TV show though.

This is one of those books. The kind you read holding your breath. Your face contorted with emotion. Your mind reeling from the stark beauty of the prose, the depth of the characters. And then at the end you clutch the closed book to your shredded chest.

The first 75% is brilliant, A+. I wish I felt as strongly about the last part! Although I did like the very last chapter.

Tadams4 I agree! The majority of the ending was anticlimactic! I cannot wait to see the movie! 4mo
Heatherfeather @Tadams4 I'm so curious how they'll adapt the unusual structure of the book 4mo

I sincerely wish this had been written better. It is an utterly fascinating, crazy/incredible story. I listened to the audiobook, and while the author is an elderly gentleman and not an actor, I very much appreciated him narrating his own story. However, the pace was uneven. PS I found his observations in the epilogue spot on. 😁 now I need to watch the movie because I need to know how Spike Lee interpreted this!

Took The Child to a reading and signing of Thomas Lennon's debut novel...and he was AWESOME. I bought the book for her but now I want to read it. He is hilarious! (He wrote the first two Night at the Museum movies, among other things and in addition to being a comedian.)

A bookish vacation at Harry Potter world in Orlando! More pics to come. I'm geeking out HARD with my daughter. 😁😊😍😄 (We are slooooowly reading the series and are currently on this one, so we were super happy to find this house.)

whippoorwill815 It‘s a really cool place! Escape from Gringotts was my favorite ride and we loved the ice cream at Florian Fortescues! You also should try some butterbeer. If you have a pass to both parks definitely take the Hogwarts Express. Have fun!! 5mo
Heatherfeather @whippoorwill815 yes yes and all yes! We will do it all today!! 5mo
rretzler We also loved Escape from Gringotts! It‘s such a fun place! If you have young ones, buy a wand and have them perform spells in front of designated shops - that‘s a blast too! 5mo

Um, this is now the gold standard for all audio books. I'm kind of speechless about how amazing the actors were in performing it. The story was engrossing and I felt like I was living it along with them.

You know...this is good...for twentysomethings. Instead of reading this as a "guideline" or for self help, I read it nostalgically (I'm 44). Still, I liked it. It's a memoir that's a comic. And I kept thinking: Girl, you are SO young at 30. You have SO much more to illustrate in the coming decades.

Wowsers. I heard Slaughter is great and that her writing is dark and unflinching, but I didn't know it would be THIS good, THIS dark and THAT unflinching. I will definitely be reading more from her. Any next suggestions????

PS. The audio narrator is INCREDIBLE
