WILD RELEASE NOTES:
mailed to ababaigalit of Modi'in, Israel to start off a bookray (actually its the international portion of a bookray that I started previously but which stalled twice).
I hope all of you enjoy this book.
I finished the book while I was in Tornto, Canda. I actually really liked the story line because it focused a lot on Jeremy's job (as a journa-list/ghost hunter) and there was a little bit of mystery involved. As for the characters, I didn't have a hard time accepting their attraction. True Believer was enchanting, as well, and it kept my interest throughout the story. I am continually amazed at his insight into the female psyche.
WILD RELEASE NOTES:
Enjoy the book
I like every now and then just to relax with a nice romantic novel - besides, there are always some funny passages or very nice word-creations with lots of hyphens which make me smile while reading.
I copied two quotations which made me think: "Yes, that's so true!":
"Believe me - I've seen what it takes to be a good parent. Having kids means taking care of them, raising them, loving and supporting them, and none of those things have anything to do with who makes them one night in the bedroom or the experience of being pregnant." says Lexie on page 240.
"She wasn't naive enough to deny that modern culture had its own seductions. Be famous and rich and beautiful and go to exclusive parties: 'only then will you be happy.' It was, in her opinion, a bunch of hogwash, the song of the desperate. If it wasn't, why were so many rich, famous, and beautiful people taking drugs? Why couldn't they seem to hold a marriage together? Why were they always getting arrested? Why did they seem so unhappy when removed from the spotlight?" (p. 269 f.)
Thank you, tabby-cat-owner for this bookring and sorry that I took a bit longer, but I'll be moving to a new appartment tomorrow, so there wasn't really much time for reading. Thanks everyone for sending it on.
The book is already - since yesterday - on its way to hetku77 in Finland (in Tampere, not in Nokia).
3.1.2009 I finally finished the book over the holidays. I had a hard time to get into the story, but when I finally had more time to sit down and read, it started going better. This was a typical book by Sparks, so no surprises there. It wasn't that cheeky either, as some of them are. Quite entertaining to read and I also enjoyed the mystery part of the story.
I pmed pinkagirl earlier today for her address.
Pm'ing next person for address. x
09.02.09 - I have Mallary's addy and I am off to the Post Office this afternoon. Travel safe little book. x
