Lost for Words | Stephanie Butland

This story was told by hopping back and forth between 1999, 2013, and 2016. Intricate characters were developed as the protagonist, Loveday Cardew, told her story. Abusive relationships, mental illness, foster care, grief and despair, forgiveness and love of all sorts are the main themes of this fascinating story. Another winner.

What a funky, funny, unusual novel. Clever, over the top, and extremely humorous, the story kept me giggling, rolling my eyes, and completely hooked. Written mostly as emails, letters, faxes, etc., The glimpses of Microsoft, Seattle, private schools, architecture, the Antarctic, and five unique personalities are an absolute delight! Can‘t wait for the movie.

Smrloomis Loved this one too! I hope the movie does it justice. 2mo

What a beautifully crafted story, how I enjoyed listening to it! I have a feeling that if I had read it I would‘ve been impatient with some of the description of the marsh, the animals, the winds and grasses and beaches. But listening to it read in Cassandra Campbell‘s lilting voice, it became poetry. Loneliness and aloneness, beauty and nature, described brilliantly. This is a wonderful piece of storytelling.

QUESTION:
If the setting of a book is 1969 .... 50 years ago — would you consider it historical fiction or contemporary realistic fiction?

Reecaspieces Hmmmm good question. 8mo
BookNAround Did the author live through the time period? I tend to think that historical fiction, whatever date cutoff someone chooses, also requires the author not to have lived at the time too. 8mo
Samplergal Geez. I‘m historical. 🤦🏽‍♀️ 8mo
See All 10 Comments
Johanna414 I‘d consider it historical since it‘s being published 50 years after the setting of the book... 8mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage Historical, although for me it also depends on whether the time period is a big factor in the story. 8mo
LibrarianJen I would just consider it fiction. Although I majored in history in undergrad so I think of anything post WW2 to be current. However, I‘m reminded daily that a good chunk of my students weren‘t even alive when 9/11 happened so I guess a historical time period is relative to how old a person is. 8mo
Tamra At this point students think anything before 1990 is historical! 😜🙄 8mo
wordzie Historical...its all history right? 8mo
Bertha_Mason 20th century historical fiction. 8mo
SW-T Probably overthinking it, but if spans from 1969 to today, or has flashbacks between then and now, contemporary. If it‘s all strictly 1969, historical fiction. 8mo

I remember being extremely frustrated after finishing the first book because it left everything so incredibly up in the air. I think I feel even more frustrated at the end of this second installment! Decent mystery, especially since it‘s YA and a good YA mystery is a bit unusual. A year to wait before the sequel comes out, the final in the series, when the entire mystery BETTER BE wrapped up, lol!!

Another wonderful book that I read in one long gulp. It was told in two voices 25 years apart, by two innocent young women, one whose decisions and silence profoundly affected the life of the other. A mystery that one could almost… but not quite… figure out. Well defined characters. Lovely British setting. And read beautifully by Elizabeth Sastre.

This book IS actually full of exotic stories, as well as insight into the Punjabi/Indian/Sikh culture in contemporary London. Told from the point of view of a modern British young woman of Punjabi heritage, the twists, turns, inter-generational friendships, arranged marriages, and honest peeks into a fascinating culture enthralled me totally. And listening to the lilting accented reader was a special added treat.

January‘s been a great month for reading! Paul Doiron‘s Mike Bowditch series keeps getting better and better – The Precipice was number six. So good, especially if you‘re interested at all in a great mystery, the state of Maine, and/or the Appalachian Trail. Run You Down was another excellent mystery, helping me learn more about the highly-Orthodox Jewish community. And Time‘s Convert allowed me back into the world of the All Soul‘s Trilogy folks.

I‘ve read them all (this is #10) – I used to love them – but they‘re starting to sound more and more alike. Similar phrasing, similar reflections, similar characters. Maybe I should read the next one with my eyes and not listen with my ears? I‘ll keep reading them because I love the setting and enjoy the main characters, but…

Very simplistically written, with lots of unedited errors, always frustrating. A very promising story, but just didn‘t follow through. The bad guys were very very bad and the good guys were very very good. Blah. The plot, setting, basic ideas, we‘re super – but the writing left a lot to be desired. YA. Dystopia. Setting: Southern California and Arizona 50 years from now.

Oh my goodness, what a clever, addicting book, though not the greatest cover, right? I couldn‘t put it down. Never a dull moment!! There were so many things I loved about this book: all sorts of twists and turns, following five different people that were easy-to-remember in an uncomplicated way, being left on the edge-of-your-seat short chapter after short chapter, and a premise that made you think, wonder, and rationalize throughout. A winner.

Others have compared this book to a sci-fi Hunger Games, and other than having slightly more than one winner at the end, that‘s pretty much what it is. I loved the entire premise from the start and was pulled into the story immediately, which hasn‘t happened a whole lot lately. Nothing like “coming-of-age“ in outer space! Loved it - 4.5.

I have such admiration for an author that can weave together a story like this one. Getting to know and understand the three protagonists is a slow (in a good way) process and makes this story all the more delicious. This book is also a reminder that there are more good people than bad in the world and that you don‘t have to be born into a family to be surrounded by love. Listening to it read aloud was really amazing.

Definitely another winner by Kimberly Willis Holt! Though touched throughout with sadness, it isn't a sad story. It's about blooming where you're planted, making the best of everything, seeing the good things there are to see, and learning from the mistakes of your parents and grandparents. And it has a wonderful array of really cool characters. I so enjoyed this story!

There‘s a fascination and pull towards the simplicity of the Amish life that more-than intrigues me, especially as I now live near numerous Amish communities. But my spiritual beliefs and those of the Amish are so very different that it makes books likes these particularly difficult to digest. The last quarter of the book pulled my rating way down, very hard for me to take. Or understand.

MelissaSue81 I just learned today that Amish fiction is it‘s own Genre. Who knew? 1y

This is the first short story in the series that hasn‘t seemed rushed and fit really well into the short story category. My only question – who paid for all the food and entertainment of the Amish Rager? Ribs and beer and a live band for 200 people? Whew! Not a bad story at all, and it even includes a tiny glimpse of Tomasetti…

As much as I try, I just can‘t get into romances. What‘s wrong with me? Sure, I like the sexy bits, but the silliness surrounding it all just keeps my eyes rolling. There was definitely some humor in this one, I snickered occasionally, and I loved all the stuff with the cat, Hamlet (thus this cute sticker). I can‘t even say it‘s because I guess I‘m getting old, because I don‘t think I‘ve ever liked romance....but I keep trying…

Soubhiville I‘m with you. Most romances are ridiculous to me. Occasionally I come across good fiction that happens to have romance as main theme, but without a really good plot and more depth full story I‘ll pass. 1y

I definitely didn‘t enjoy this book as much as I did the first one - it was all I could do to finish. The plot was boring, the killer‘s actions at the end ridiculous. And the way the protagonist was portrayed by the audio reader didn‘t match what I had in my head. She gave Eve a particularly bitchy edge that just didn‘t sit right with me. So when you have a lousy story that isn‘t read to your liking, the rating isn‘t going to be too high. Bummer.

DGRachel I agree. The audiobook narrator can really make or break a story. 1y
BooksAtNight This book is probably my least favorite of the entire series. And come to think of it, this book may be the reason that I stopped listening to this series on audio. I think you just helped me figure out why! 1y

I love mysteries, but not usually from the pov of a journalist (harassing people to get a story). That being said, this was a good mystery that Rebekah solved all by herself - mainly because it was not being pursued by the police - while encountering clues from her own past. I love reading books that take a peek inside the Hasidic Jewish community, and for that this book did not disappoint. It gave me that peek, a good mystery, and a short read.

An in-depth look at one screwed up family, The Last Equation of Isaac Severy comes at you from many directions. Told distinctly from two different points of view and less distinctly from one or two others; mystery, reality of a gritty world, and some scientific/fantastic mathematics combine to make quite an interesting tale.

This was a long, endless, DEPRESSING story told from the point of view of four different people. For quite a while I couldn‘t help but compare it to The Fifth Wave, with shades of Station Eleven, until it went in its own direction. So depressing, it‘s going to take me a while to climb back out of the hole it put me into. It worked well as an audiobook.

Creepily interesting....
Great characters. The story/plot either left out some information or took it for granted I understood some that I didn‘t. Since it was about hacking and disturbing government agents and agencies, probably both apply! The first and second halves of the book were very different – I much preferred the first half, and would have rated the book higher if it had continued in the same vein.

This is an autobiography more than a memoir, I think. It‘s sort of like an outline of her life through eighth grade. Not only does 15-year-old Jazz Jennings write this, she reads it aloud as well, and in a self-confident way that gives extra impetus to what she says. She is so positive, so upbeat, that I think this book would be extra special and helpful for any young person that‘s transgender.

What a story!

I can‘t decide what the best part of this book was, but I know I really enjoyed all its “layers,” the way it unfolded, how the past was revealed in bits and pieces. And it was a truly believable story, both the bad stuff and the good stuff. Setting and description – wonderful. Characterization – also wonderful, getting to know the protagonist and all the side characters was pitch perfect. Plot - mesmerizing!

I purposely didn‘t closely read the description of the book so that I would have no clue what was going to happen. What a perfect decision, the entire story kept me on the edge of my seat and I couldn‘t wait to get back to it, finishing it in a single day. Interesting world building, but there are six more books in the series – that‘s too many for me. It did get a little sluggish in places in the second half but it was a pretty good read. #Fantasy

When this book first came out everyone raved about it so, even though I have an aversion to nonfiction, I tried it. I didn‘t get very far. Last month, in anticipation of a trip to Savannah, I decided to try it again. This time I listened to it, and I wonder if perhaps I would‘ve liked it better if I had read it. I just didn‘t care for it. I rented the movie on Amazon shortly before I left… although lots different from the book, I liked it better.

Read with a thick lilt and including a few references I was unsure of, (the cabra? Cabra? since I listened to it I didn't know if it was a proper noun place or an improper noun place) I enjoyed this mystery (not loved, but liked). Perhaps not the most exciting or surprising that I've ever read, but entertaining nonetheless, more in the characterizations than anything else.
