Review For: The Duke Who Came To Town Sophie Barnes
The Duke Who Came To Town (The Honorable Scoundrels Book 3) - Sophie Barnes

The Duke Who Came To Town by Sophie Barnes is Book Three in "The Honorable Scoundrels".  This the story Josephine Potter and Devon, the Duke of Snowdon.  I have read (and loved) the other books in this series but think this can be a standalone book.
Josephine is the older sister who has to take care of her sisters.  Doing so has brought her to being an account for a hotel.  When she is let go she argues with Devon who has insisted that she should be work as she is the granddaughter of a Viscount.
I loved watching their story play out and just added to my love of this series.

Manhattan Beach: A Novel by Jennifer Egan
Surprise Me: A Novel - Sophie Kinsella

A special thank you to NetGalley and Simon and Schuster Canada for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

 

Egan's latest offering takes place in America during the Depression.  Twelve-year-old Anna Kerrigan accompanies her father to visit Dexter Styles, a man who she perceives to be important.  Anna can't help but notice the lavish house equipped with servants, toys for the children, and the pact between Styles and her father.  

 

Years later the country is at war, Anna's father has disappeared, and she has to support her mother and disabled sister with work at the Brooklyn Navy Yard.  Because of the war, women are allowed to work and perform jobs that were traditionally jobs for men.  She becomes the first female diver—an incredibly dangerous occupation—repairing naval ships.  Anna meets Dexter Styles at a nightclub and realizes that he is the man she visited with her father before his disappearance.  Styles has ties to the mob and Anna begins to understand the complexity of her father's life.     

 

The first section is smart, sharp, and brilliantly executed.  Egan's writing is solid, exactly what you would expect.  Then the novel makes one of many jumps in time and the story becomes scattered.  There is a complete lack of harmony and the reader is left with a rambling narrative that is a mash-up of three stories.  Hinging on boring at times, I didn't connect with the characters, or the plot, and this is disappointing because Egan has obviously done her homework.

"Schlaft gut, ihr fiesen Gedanken": Feinfühliger Roman über eine Jugendliche mit Angststörungen
Schlaft gut, ihr fiesen Gedanken - John ... Schlaft gut, ihr fiesen Gedanken - John Green,Sophie Zeitz

Wie fühlt es sich an, seine Gedanken und Ängste nicht unter Kontrolle zu haben? John Green gelingt mit „Schlaft gut, ihr fiesen Gedanken“ ein sensibles Portrait eines Teenagers mit Zwangsstörungen. Azas Gedankenspiralen lassen sich sehr gut nachvollziehen.

 

Das im Klappentext angeteaserte Verschwinden eines Milliardärs stellt allerdings nur die Rahmenhandlung dar und spielt eine untergeordnete Rolle. Im Mittelpunkt steht Aza, die durch ihre Angststörungen kein normales Leben führen kann. Doch nicht nur ihre eigenen Erfahrungen prägen das Buch, sondern auch die Auswirkungen der psychischen Krankheit auf Azas Umfeld – auf ihre Mutter, ihre beste Freundin und ihr Freund. Da die Angehörigen Betroffener oft in den Hintergrund rücken und deren Schwierigkeiten meist eine untergeordnete Rolle spielen, haben mir die unterschiedlichen Perspektiven auf Azas Problem gut gefallen.

I finished this a while ago. While it was a little slow moving at first, I got to enjoy the story very much. The main character got to be very likeable and I really enjoyed the people he met along his journey.
