One of the best I’ve read this year.

This book was recommend to me to read. I'm glad I did read it. Found it very well written and the characters made it worth the read. You felt like you was right there with them and fighting along with them to serve. I call this a one powerful read and gives you something to think about. Could you serve and make a better live for yourself.

This is very brilliantly written. The author has done a lot of research in written it. She has given us a lot of murder, kidnapping, some drug deals that have g
Another very good book by Boston Teran. I don't know if Teran is a male or female, or a group of authors. The first book I read, God Is a Bullet, I thought definitely a man. Now this book, similar style, high quality writing, engaging, BUT with all the sensitivity and understanding of female issues. Must have much female influence. The World Eve Left Us is slightly outside the genre of crime fiction, but a good dose of murder, kidnapping, drug deals gone bad, and male bullies, for the lovers of ...more
The "Bestseller in France" call-out and the haunting black & white photo compelled me to pull it off the shelf.

But the strong female characters kept me entranced as I read their tragic and triumphant intertwined stories. The writing made me feel like I was dropped in the Bronx in the Italian district in the 1950s...a hard read with much sadness but yet, strength in female relationships made me enjoy the "French Bestseller" including all the errors in the translation.

I think Boston Teran is a collaboration of 2 or more authors- the writing did not flow as it would with one mind directing the traffic.

Currently free in the Kindle format. In France it is called Trois Femmes. Is this going to be a waste of time? I just made such a mistake. Do I do it all over again? I have three days to make up my mind.
Not really my type of book. But I did read it all. Don't go by the cover picture, it does NOT depict
the book correctly............ Never does the name of the book.
The translation was awful, but the story was good.
So sad, so intense, so great story.
