A Scottish-Canadian Blethering On About Books
Following along in my great tradition of reading the trendiest books long after their trend is over, I finally got around to spending time with Nick and Amy Dunne. I was completely unspoiled, having paid no attention whatsoever to reviews of either the movie or the book.Well, in a nutshell, I didn't...

This book is a thriller that keeps the reader turning pages of an unpredictable plot until the conclusion. Flynn tackles the subject of the delicate balance of marriage and what is takes to keep a relationship going long-term through inevitable ups and downs. Highly recommended read for an origina...

OMG!! So many twists and turns!! The characters were total train wrecks and utterly despicable, but I found that I couldn't stop reading!! You think you had it figured out, then BAM!, another twist. Hated the ending, though.

So, in my quest to update my reviews, here is another abandoned, one star book. Why didn't I enjoy it as much as the majority?I actually made two attempts to read this, for two separate book groups - that's how popular this book was when it came out, five years ago.

It was weird and I didn't really like any of the characters. I felt sorry at the ending--wasn't worth 500 pages really.

Amy Elliott Dunne is somewhat famous, but not so much for anything she has accomplished for herself. She is known as the inspiration for a series of children's books--"Amazing Amy"--co-authored by her parents, Rand and Marybeth Elliott. The popularity of the series has waned as both "book" Amy and...

I would only recommend this book to readers who are looking for a book with a build up. For me though, this book seemed to drag on through the first three quarters of story before it actually got interesting. Overall the story line is gripping and very different to any books I've read.
