This fictionalized version of Zelda Fitzgerald’s time at the Phipps Clinic at Johns Hopkins Hospital and her friendship with her nurse is overly dramatic and unbelievable. I wouldn’t recommend it.

I didn’t make it to the end of this book (which, btw, was in the teen section!). I enjoyed the beginning and the middle but then I found it a bit boring. Apparently Tim Burton is going to make the book into a movie.
When I went to get this book from the library, I heard a customer loudly ask to a librarian how she was supposed to like a book where she hated both main characters. When I asked my librarian where I would find Gone Girl, she told me that was the book the loud customer was talking about. Well, I didn’t really like either character but I really DID like the book. It was a quick read and, I don’t think it’s a very important book (ie, I’m not going away from it any wiser or smarter) but it was well written and surprising and I was a little sad when it was over.
I was pretty disappointed with this book – it’s slow and gets pretty boring once Hadley and Ernest (Hemingway) get to Paris. I was a little reluctant about this book because it’s historical drama but was desperate at the airport bookstore to find something I hadn’t already read.
This book started out being so interesting – it’s about a man and his brother and what they were going to do about the awful situation their sons were in. The book goes through the dinner where they are going to work this out and has chapters with flashes to the situation with the sons as well as other explanations of their past. Somewhere in the middle, the book fizzles out and I was left feeling very unsatisfied. I think back to the book I started out loving and I don’t feel like I finished reading it.
I loved John Irving’ middle run of novels – from Garp through Owen Meany and then I didn’t enjoy his late run books much (except for The Door in the Floor). But I kept reading. I did enjoy In One Person but it’s definitely different from the ones I loved so much.
The Second in his historical trilogy covers WW2 and is really interesting showing HOW Germany could have happened. I enjoyed the book and felt like I learned a lot about the tone of this era.
The main charachter has severe memory loss and can’t remember anything from day to day (her memory is erased every night). I’ve just started the book and I’m really enjoying the journey as she tries to figure out her life as a married 40-something. So far, everything is a mystery and it’s not certain who is trustworthy. It seems like a cross between 50 First Dates and Memento.
Another Scandinavian (Swedish) crime novel and I’m loving it.
Overall, I loved these books. One little line near the end of this one really bothered me. I’m looking forward to the movies of the last 2 books.
