Hài hước trong nhiều phần, nhưng phải ép mình hoàn thành nó thật nhàm chán.
Cuốn sách này rất hay và rất ngọt ngào !!!!
I loved all of the Peter Wimsey mysteries by Dorothy Sayers. This "completed" posthumous final one is not worth the time. Don't recomment it.
Thoroughly enjoyed this retelling of the classic fairy tale. Wicked is a favorite but I was quite disappointed with Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister - so I was a little hesitant to read Mirror, Mirror. But it turned out to be an engaging and magical book. There were so many different voices to be heard throughout and I really enjoyed the twists from the original Snow White - such as the creative names for the rocks/dwarves (Heartless and Mute, Mute, Mute were my favorites). The interweaving of the real-life Borgias was very interesting too.
This is the first book by L.C. Evans I’ve read and the second in the series. I enjoyed it and will probably read others in this series and/or by L.C. Evans. This series revolves a bit around horses and horse shows and is set in a small Florida town. A member of the local horse club is accused of murdering a friend of her husband. The husband seems indifferent at best. While not wanting to be involved, Leigh McRae is asked by the accused, Candy, to help her out. After Candy reveals something no one else knows and realizing that no one is going to help Candy, Leigh decides to do a little poking around. Tagged on and around this is her cousin Sammi’s belief that her neighbor is poisoning neighborhood dogs. The clues are all laid out. I knew there was a connection, but there were numerous false leads, but in the end it all tied together nicely. A few things did annoy me. The attitude of the sheriff. While Leigh did present some pretty basic things it was apparent he had his person and would consider nothing else. I guess I prefer to have law enforcement be willing to help and investigate instead of being the enemy. Her relationships with the men in her life. I haven’t read the first book, but Kenneth, her ex-husband, is not written in a manner that anyone would like him. I also didn’t care for her wishy washiness over marrying Adam, the perfect man she now has. No man is perfect. I couldn't tell if the author was trying to throw romance into mystery or not. If she was, it was subtle and didn’t really work for me. I did really enjoy the relationship between Leigh and her cousin Sammi. I couldn’t tell if Leigh had many other friends other than acquaintances from the horse club, though she seemed to know and get along with plenty of people. She has a daughter, who is youngish (11), but is barely in the book. Not sure what I think about that, though for most of the book the daughter was at dressage camp. I thought her job woes got a bit tiresome as did the constant reminders of how run down her house was. While these did wear a bit thin with me, they didn’t really detract from the book and I will most likely read other books in this series. Overall, this was a good book and I’d recommend it.
This is one of the most powerful books I have ever read! In fact the curator for religious books at the Library of Congress says that this is the best portrayal of the life of Jesus he has ever come across. Read it! If you don't have the time or money get it listen to the audio book http://vegemedia.net/audios/egw/mp3Li... Then buy it and read it. There is just so much to take in that you'll never get tired of going over it!
Although my mother was the ballet fan this was a book I read with my grandmother. We read it together several times and then I read it at least a dozen more times on my own. Later my daughter read it as well. I loved the story but it never made me want to be a ballet dancer.
