I've enjoyed his books in the past so I'm going to try this one. Guru's are a troublesome concept for me so I'm thinking this satire could interest me......but first I must finish with The Talented Mr Ripley! #beyourownguru #furballsoflitsy

I read The Other Typist recently and really enjoyed the style and the story so I picked this up at library. It took me awhile to get into but ultimately I enjoyed.

I enjoyed this book. It was fun and I found it a good entry in the Poirot world. Perfect beach read.

I was definitely into the story of Chris Knight and was glad I had an opportunity to hear about it in this book but I did have a few reservations about the authors motives. I say that and find myself wanting to know more about Knight and his experiences so ultimately j guess I understand why the author felt compelled to tell the story. It is fascinating to me.... And I feel kind of bad about that.

Mehso-so

For some reason I could not get completely absorbed in this book. I liked it ok and the writing is good but the story just didn't grip me. I feel like I may have enjoyed it a bit more on audio.

Mdargusch It‘s the only one of her books I haven‘t finished. I got halfway and then haven‘t picked it up in months. I do want to finish it though. 2y
jennw1212 @Mdargusch , yeah I put it down alot. I audio booked The Trespasser by her and loved it. Good to know that you had a similar situation and enjoyed her other books because I definitely want to read them. 2y
Mdargusch Yes, she‘s one of my favorite authors. 2y

I'm trying again with this book. I had to take a break because while I am intrigued by the plot the writing style is a bit much. I understand what a pregnancy test is. I don't need a lengthy description of it. But I am hoping I get used to it.

I totally got sucked into this story. The audio book was pretty good. Three different narrators. I found it compelling and really engrossing. I could also smell the hormones and teenage years pouring out in the words. That's a compliment in this case:)

The Best American Short Stories 2017 | Heidi Pitlor, Meg Wolitzer
post image
Pickpick

Short stories aren't really my thing. I picked this up at library because I was in between books and thought, why not. Some if the stories were great and others I didn't get into. Overall, i enjoyed the experience. The Sonya Larson story was among the best for me. As we're the Jess Walter's and T.C Boyle stories.

Next audio book. I had started this one before but stopped for no real reason. I think now is the time.
