I liked this except for the side story about the detective. Maybe it was the audio but I hated the language he used. Not in a way that I was offended- I thought it was annoying. I thought it might be an issue of a female author trying to sound like how she thinks men talk to each other? anyone else think that? Am I just getting old???

LOL. So much. If you listen to the steamy parts really fast they sound even more ridiculous.

A sweet little red book for lunch today. Delicious.

Tamra That is a lovely looking book and sofa, but with kids and pets in my house it would look great for about 2 hours! 😆 10mo

Is this my greatest accomplishment? Finally done with this brick. Chose the audio version which was great but I only ended up liking the first half- so the remaining 20 plus hours were a slog. Didn‘t find it very scary. Anybody else?

TheCuriousHousecat Wasn‘t keen on the movie. I was going to try “the stand” but it‘s too long. 10mo

LouLouLane What do you think? I really liked it. I want my friends that are pharmacists to read it and tell me how crazy it actually is. 1y
britt_brooke @LouLouLane I finished it this afternoon, but still can‘t decide what to think. There are things I loved about it; the weird details, the dark humor. But I‘m not sure I liked the actual story much. Idk. It‘s a pick, though, for sure! 1y

Read this lovely novel about Florida down in South Florida while in one of my favorite coffee shops. I first started this about five years ago when I was walking the Florida trail but my reading was a little all over the place on that trip. Loved it this time through!

Trying this one again. I got bored with it earlier this year but EVERYONE LOVES IT.

Aims42 I hope you enjoy it during your second attempt 🤞🏼 I‘m in the “loved it” boat, but I‘ve read a few books that everyone loved and I couldn‘t get past the first 50 pages 🙂 1y
Bren912 I understand how you got bored. It has taken me a LONG time to read this book. BUT- just go with it because all at once everything is coming together and this book is priceless. I‘m now over half way and don‘t want to put it down. 1y
LouLouLane I‘m loving it the second time around. Thanks for the encouragement 😁 1y
