Welcome to My Planet: Where English Is Sometimes Spoken
Welcome to My Planet: Where English Is Sometimes Spoken
von Shannon Olson
  Gebundene Ausgabe

4.0 von 5 Sternen Welcome To A Really Great Book......, 22. Juni 2000
"Welcome to My Planet: Where English Is Sometimes Spoken" is a real delight and such a funny novel about a normal 30 something gal with a dead end job, LOSER boyfriend who sort of moves in without telling her, and a family who really adds comic relief. *Mom (called Flo) is hilarious. I loved her character. The interaction between mother and daughter is a running dialog of tenderness, comedy, and fear. I loved that about this book. What mother/daughter team doesn't represent all those different faces. This is an a well written book by a talented author who certainly has a voice and something to say. I found it intelligent, fun, and very enjoyable. I would recommend it to anyone.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Beautiful Language and a Wonderful Story, 16. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Bee Season: A Novel (Gebundene Ausgabe)
"Bee Season" is the exceptional look into the world of a family. A flawed family that changes and grows (some for the better..some for the worse) as young Eliza finds a passion and talent for spelling bees. This backdrop adds such a wonderful and sweet tale of this amazing family and the flaws that bind them. I found the character of the brother to be most appealing and interesting to read. This is a completely wonderful book and I look forward to more by this very talented author. Her use of words and language is first rate....very well done.


Plan B
Plan B

  Gebundene Ausgabe

4.0 von 5 Sternen The Big Chill For The Year 2000, 16. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Plan B (Gebundene Ausgabe)
"Plan B" has movie script written all over it. As other reviews have said, it's clear that this book could be made into a movie....but, the question is, "A good movie?" I would hate to see this wonderfully warm, creative, and well written debut novel get the "movie make-over hack." The characters are interesting, multi dimensional, and you really are concerned about them and the fate they will face. I found this book to be very enjoyable and has a lot of postive qualities. This author has a lot of talent and it's clear he has a way with characterization and storytelling. A really nice read!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Delightful and Very Funny, 13. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: World of Pies: A Novel (Gebundene Ausgabe)
This is a wonderful book for the summer. It's full of humor, and fun. "World of Pies" is a coming of age tale about the world of a young girl. From her as a young girl and into adulthood you take this very charming ride with her. The supporting cast adds a tremendous amount of pleasure and substance. I really loved this book and found myself laughing outloud on a number of occasions. A wonderful summer read and certainly one to pack on a get-away.


Julie and Romeo: A Novel

4.0 von 5 Sternen Flirty and Charming, 13. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Julie and Romeo: A Novel (Gebundene Ausgabe)
This book attracted me for a very simple and not very intelligent reason. I liked the cover. I thought it was pretty. I know, not a very thoughtful way to pick out a book but, once I started this sweet tale I was enchanted. I found it to be very likeable and very sexy. It's a wonderful tale of love, the problems that always seem to come up with that and the endearing belief that it will conquer all. The cast of characters add a wonderful sense of adventure, humor and sometimes frustration. But, I completely enjoyed this book. It was a fast and fun read!

5.0 von 5 Sternen LOVE LOVE LOVE this book!, 7. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Jemima J: A Novel (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I'm completely amazed by the talented British, female, hilarious writers I have been discovering in the past few years. Why are their books so much better than the ones I have been finding by American writers? I really think there is an untapped market in the UK. I'm a huge fan of Jane Green and have ordered NUMEROUS books by her from amazon.uk and have loved them all...BUT, this one "Jemim J." is tops on my list. It's everything a fun, sweet, sexy, interesting, and well written book, SHOULD be. I loved the characters, the story, the settings..EVERYTHING. It deals with the amazing lead character of Jemima (J.J.) and her life as a over-weight English gal who just wants to find the perfect man and be happy. (Don't we all? That comes (well..she thinks) in the perfect package she discovers on the internet. (What a great set-up) But, she soon discovers that even though she completely makes herself over, that love many not be where she first thought. It's got twists, love, humor, and loads of whitty conversation. One hundred percent enjoyable! Can't wait for more by Jane Green. A super read..and I highly recommend it!


Eating the Cheshire Cat: A Novel
Eating the Cheshire Cat: A Novel
von Helen E. Ellis
  Gebundene Ausgabe

4.0 von 5 Sternen Dripping With Southern Charm., 3. Juni 2000
Completely hilarious, devilish and entertaining. Loved every minute of it. As a Northern girl ( born and breed) I must confess to a facination with those "Southern Gals". Is this really the truth? GOOD LORD! What a hoot. The stories of women, mothers, daughters and beauty pagents is worth the price alone. BUT...then you get everything else. What a charming book! Full of everything a good summer book should be. Take it to the beach...you'll have a blast!

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Fun Trip!, 3. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Ralph's Party: A Novel (Taschenbuch)
A completely entertaing romp into the lives and loves a group of 20/30 something flatmates. The reader is allowed the rare glimpse into their lives and is awarded a front row seat. It's got that "Real World" home invasion quality to it and you almost feel like a peeping Tom. It's a true character driven novel that is delightful and very sweet. I I really enjoyed it's easy and breezy nature.

In the Drink

4.0 von 5 Sternen I Love Her Because She Was Flawed!, 3. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: In the Drink (Gebundene Ausgabe)
"In the Drink" could be lumped into those "wanna be like Bridget" catergories...and, I admit, I've read my fair share of them. Even loved a few, but this books is do different. She's flawed. She's real. She's like me. There's so prince charming waiting. She's making her own life and earning her own way. That's what I loved abou her. She's real and honest. This book looks at life and see's it for all it's worth and what's really there. I must say...I completely loved this book and plan on passing the good word along.


Before You Sleep
Before You Sleep
von Linn Ullmann
  Gebundene Ausgabe

3.0 von 5 Sternen The Story of a Family!, 3. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Before You Sleep (Gebundene Ausgabe)
"Before You Sleep" is a wonderful look inside the doors and windows of a very dysfunctional family. The trials and tribulations of Karin and the world she lives in add the wonderful backdrop to a sometimes complicated and extremely character focused book. It takes some work getting into it....but, if you give it time, you'll make it. It's a bit slow going, but if you're a fan of charcter books, this one might be for you.
