Bunun için Brian W'ye teşekkürler. Uzun zamandır okuduğum en sürükleyici cümlelerden biri. Nadiren birinin böylesi birbirinden farklı iki dünyayı böyle bir içgörü ile yazdığını ve sonra onları tek bir karakter halinde parçaladığını görürsünüz; bir doktor ve eski hitman ..... orijinal az söylemek. Umarım O'neil gibi "Sharktank" ile bir hit harikası değildir.
I have't actually read this in awhile, but it amazed me the first time around.
As all her books I loved it. It was fun to watch and see how she weaves her story.
This is a wonderful story, made that much more impressive simply by the fact that it is the true story of the author's family. It is impossible to not feel what the characters are feeling and, as a reader, you become emotionally invested in the story very quickly. I found myself crying when the characters cried, feeling scared when they felt scared, and basically emulating all emotions reflected in the book. It's a bit long and looks like a text book at first glance (with black and white photos of the author's family in the middle of the book), but don't let that discourage you because it flies by. Definitely one of those books that you are sad to be finished reading because you miss the characters.
Paperboy Club by Mobashar Qureshi 4 Stars Would recommend reading it. a crime thriller with supernatural on the side. Detective Samantha Banter's up for promotion and is given a cold case of a murdered 5 year old to solve. Their is given a assualt case to the other guy up for the promtion to see how they handle the cases. Samantha is a single mother. Marryann is shy and doesn't make friends easy but soon is part of a group called paperboy club. They all have different problems and talents. They are meeting after school in the janator room. Samantha in looking up the case finds the husband was in jail on selling Heroin at time of death and is missing now. When she is trying to find out what really happened to the boy she is led to a mental hospital where she finds Clarence. Clarence can hold things and gets information from them and helps to find the truth and the father. Clarence can also tell when someone is lying around him. He is being kept in mental hospital because he beat up a guy that he knew what he was really doing to hurt others. Know one believes him until Samantha does and helps her and her partner to solve the murder. I was listening to the story on my kindle and did get lost in a few times, but that was probably my fault. I do enjoy his mysterys books and will read more books by him. I was given this ebook in exchange of honest review from librarything.
The story is told through the eyes of autistic boy. He excels at "maths" but his language skills are not so well developed. It was a very interesting and enjoyable read.
I did enjoy reading this book (and it took a while to get through). I thought the love story between Levin and Kitty to be far more interesting than that between Anna and Vronsky. I found Anna's character to be unsympathetic, and I was not at all saddened by her death. The translation of this book was good, but I would like to read a different version of it sometime to see if my impressions of the characters are changed any.
This book both held my attention and annoyed me at the same time. How one woman can have so many problems and make so many stupid decisions is beyond me. Although she didn't earn my sympathy, the story was interesting and I ended up liking the book.
