Behind Closed Doors | B. A. Paris
post image
Bailedbailed

I started reading this book because of the high ratings here on Litsy. I had to bail! It was terrible! I have no other words for it. 🤷🏻‍♀️ #bail #behindcloseddoors #boring #bland #mystery

Samplergal I hated it as well. Ugh. 2mo
Melissa_J I finished it, but didn‘t like it either. 2mo
TheBee @Samplergal @Melissa_J I‘m glad to hear I‘m not the only one 😉. Can‘t wait until it‘s out of the house 🤣. 2mo

Into the Wild | Jon Krakauer
post image
Mehso-so

I preferred the movie 🎥

bernadette I thought it was pretty good until Krakauer started inserting himself into the story in the latter half of the book. McCandless is a more interesting person than Krakauer. 2mo
Zelma @bernadette I completely agree. I thought some of his anecdotes didn‘t work in the story he told, and was a stretch to insert his own struggles into McCandless‘ story. Into Thin Air works a lot better (and is excellent) because it is actually his story as well as the other climbers; he is part of that tragic expedition. 2mo
bernadette I read Into Thin Air before I read Into the Wild and agree with you. When he inserted himself in McCandless' story, it felt intrusive and it just didn't fit well. I like Krakauer's writing though; I should see if he has published anything recently. 2mo

I Found You | Lisa Jewell

This was the first book I read from Lisa Jewell. Picked it up at my local coffee shop book exchange shelf. It‘s an excellent page turner. I liked the twisted story and its numerous cliffhanger chapters. A fast and easy summer read. #mystery #beachread #summerread #lisajewell

There were only few ideas and lines that I really liked. But overall it wasn‘t a hit. There are far better books out there on this topic, in my opinion. I didn‘t enjoy the writing/setup. #stevenpressfield #artist #artistsstruggle #creativebattle #notforme

kathedron I haven't read it. I think the whole fight/battle/war metaphor is overdone (in life generally) and it's high time we started finding different ways to make meaning of our realities. 5mo
TheBee @kathedron do you have an example? I‘m interested. 5mo
kathedron I suppose I would rather seek to understand the difficult situations and people in my life, to establish communication rather than fight. I think trying to defeat/eradicate situations with a lot of energy behind them just tends to make the problem burst out elsewhere. I realise that may be idealistic of me. (Brexit is sorely testing this point of view currently!) 5mo
TheBee @kathedron Are you maybe referring to another book? Maybe you mean the Art of War? The one I read is more about the inner battle that is the reality of many people. 5mo
Sunraven I agree, I also found this book underwhelming, despite all the high praise I‘ve seen for it. And I agree with @kathedron, I think there are better ways to frame struggles, both internal and external.

I probably would have enjoyed this book more if it had been presented more as a personal story and less as universal advice, since what‘s true for one person isn‘t always true for everyone, and sweeping generalizations tend to bug me. 😁

At first I wanted to bail, but then couldn‘t put the book down!!
The wake of growing up in a dysfunctional family is very well depicted in the characters of the codependent narrator and her brother. Excellent psychological profiles!
John the Golden Child and Marion the Scapegoat or Lost Child both seem to be equally troubled in their adult life. I was pleasantly surprised and loved the book!

Frankenstein | Mary Shelley
post image

Just finished rereading Mary Shelley‘s classic Frankenstein and loved it as much as the first time!! It‘s so beautifully written I could go on reading for another 200 pages! And I‘m not even a fan of gothic literature. Forget your prejudice stemming from movie adaptations and comics. This tale is fantastic. I highly recommend that you give it a chance! #maryshelley #frankenstein #classic #fiction #horror #gothicnovel #1818 #alchemy #switzerland

This was my first Koontz book. Couldn‘t finish. No flow. Annoying to read in my opinion. #bail #koontz #didntfinish

Guildedearlobe Koontz was my favorite as a teenager but lately he‘s been hit or miss. Velocity isn‘t one of my favorites, although plenty love it. I prefer Watchers or Servants of the Twilight. 13mo

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Oh I loved The Snake Stone so much! What a wild ride through 1838 Istanbul. An excellent historical mystery with a lot of suspense. I know Istanbul very well and therefore enjoyed every chapter in this book. Kept reading through the night. Short colorful chapters and lovely characters.
Will definitely read the other Yashim novels too.

TheBee @Books_Bikes_12 I enjoyed it a lot despite the hard and in my eyes tragic story! I enjoyed her bittersweet recollections of her childhood with Buby. That made me smile a lot. It‘s hard to grasp how the Hasidic community lives in midst of modern day New York City. It‘s hard to grasp that these women who ride the same train into Manhattan as I do, have such a different and oppressed life. The book definitely makes you think. (edited) 1y
