Very interesting. Quite alike with 1984, but for teenagers. Seems promising, I'll be awaiting the sequel.
This book made his wife sound like the real trooper throughout the whole cancer deal and then he ditches her for Sheryl Crow. Not cool Lance. Fame can really do things to people (although, he was kind of a jerk before he got cancer, he just hadn't reached his peak in performance).
Very utilitarian, but I need that for weeknights!
Well written. The Mermaid Chair held a very sad secret. Actions have consequences and if not dealt with, can have devastating results. Forgiveness, either given or accepted, is powerful and not to be taken for granted.
This made me laugh out loud.
No pic with a cover for this one... figures. I like Stuart Woods. I really enjoy his Stone Barrington novels. This one... not so much. Also not Stone Barrington. I hated the main character, but that was probably the point. The guy is a sleeze. I wasn't too terribly bored with the book and it didn't end the way I thought it was going to. It should have because the ending was stupid. Yeah, I got the point and the symbolism and all that garbage, but it was really just dumb! My 8 year old could have written a better ending. I read the last chapter and turned to the epilogue and said "That's it? It's over?" I read the epilogue while rolling my eyes. Read this if you like Woods do not read this if you've never read him before. It is not representative of his work.
