Χάρηκα που ξανασυνάντησα τους παλιούς μου φίλους, την Φιόνα, τον Τζο και τον Σέιμι και που έμαθα νέα για τους αγαπημένους μου Ίντια και Μαλλόουν. Όμως, αυτό το βιβλίο στάθηκε κατώτερο της τριλογίας και των προσδοκιών μου. Είχε πολλές πολλές… ατέλειωτες αδιάφορες σελίδες, σελίδες που δεν γινόταν τίποτα που απλώς κουβέντιαζαν ή θυμόντουσαν ή έλεγαν τι υποθέτουν ότι θα συμβεί ήηηη ξέρω κ εγώ τι; Άμα το βιβλίο είχε 150 σελίδες λιγότερες (ναι, κάπου τόσες δεν υπερβάλλω) η ιστορία πάλι θα ήταν ολόκληρ ...more

Loved the story. Although it was my least favorite of the three. Don't really know why... But fabulous story-telling by Ms Donnelly once again. :)

Για την γραφή της Donnelly και μόνο, κατά τα άλλα η ιστορία πιο αδιάφορη κι από τα λαχανάκια Βρυξελλών.
Να μην πω για την πρωταγωνίστρια η οποία έπεσε από βουνό κι έζησε, έπεσε από ελικόπτερο κι έζησε, μέχρι κι από καμήλα πήγε κι έπεσε κι έζησε. Αυτή δεν ήταν άνθρωπος, ο RoboCop ήταν.
Feb 27, 2011 Naomi rated it it was ok depressing...I can't believe I am giving this only two stars. I have been waiting for this book to come out and was INCREDIBLY excited to see it on NetGalley and even more priveledged that I was allowed to read an ARC. On that note, this isn't Jennifer Donnelly's finest work. Her other books, including her YA books have received nothing less than 4 stars from me. I found this one disappointing, forced and predictable though..and def. not up to her "standard" of writing.

Αν μπορούσα να περιγράψω με μια λέξη το συγκεκριμένο βιβλίο αυτό θα ήταν απογοήτευση! Αν και έχουν περάσει αρκετά χρόνια από όταν πρωτο διάβασα τα δύο πρώτα βιβλία της τριλογίας ακόμα θυμάμαι με κάθε λεπτομέρεια κάθε συναίσθημα που μου άφησαν. Δυστυχώς αυτό δε το βρήκα στο "Άγριο Τριαντάφυλλο".

Βρισκόμαστε οχτώ χρονιά μετά τα γεγονότα από το "Τριαντάφυλλο του χειμώνα". Ο Σέιμι επιστρέφει στο Λονδίνο μετά από ένα ακόμη ταξίδι του. Όσα χρόνια και αν έχουν περάσει δεν μπορεί να ξεχάσει τον μεγάλου τ

Край на тази сага дето ме държа толкова дълго и упорито. Но последната част определено не е като предходните две. Внимание спойлери!!! Още, когато във втората книга се появиха историите на Шийми и Уила много се дразнех, че ме откъсват от основната сюжетна нишка. Дали заради това или просто ми бяха скучни с техните планини и катерене, но тогава четях тези глави малко по диагонал, а сега цяла книга за двамата нещо ми беше пре-много. Дразнеха ме техните отношения като цяло - много се обичат, а не з ...more

Got my hands on an advance copy and all I can say is … WOW!! If Tea Rose and Winter Rose were turned up to 11 in terms of drama, emotion, plot twists and unforgettable characters, Wild Rose is turned up to – I don’t know – 12? 20?? This absolutely lives up to its predecessors, and then some. It’s tied with Winter Rose for my favorite of the three … but everyone has a different favorite for different reasons!

I could gush for pages, as this is very fresh on my mind – but I don’t want to steal ever

Πέρασαν 9 χρόνια από τότε που κυκλοφόρησε "Το Τριανταφυλλάκι" και 3 χρόνια από την κυκλοφορία του "Άγριου Τριαντάφυλλου", τα δύο πρώτα βιβλία της επικής τριλογίας της Donnelly, και 2 από τότε που τα διάβασα κι εγώ η ίδια. Και όμως, παρά το μεγάλο χρονικό διάστημα που μεσολάβησε, θυμόμουν κάθε λεπτομέρεια, κάθε μικρό ή μεγάλο βήμα των πρωταγωνιστών της, κάθε χαρά και λύπη που πέρασαν, κάθε συναίσθημα που βίωσαν και μοιράστηκαν μαζί μας. Και μπορεί να υπήρξαν στιγμές που η λαχτάρα μου να διαβάσω τ ...more

I kind of knew that I wasn't going to like this book after I finished reading the second book in the series, The Winter Rose. You, the Rose Trilogy follows the lives of the Finnegan Siblings, Fiona, Sid and Seamie. I loved Fiona and Sid. Seamie not as much and Willa, his love interest, really not at all. That's the major problem with this book. Seamie and Willa are just not as likable as Fiona and Joe and Sid and India. Unlike the first two couples, Seamie and Willa are priviledge.

I hated just about every character in this book. But I especially disliked Willa; selfish, reactionary, overly dramatic, self-destructive, stupid Willa. When she and Seamie started their adulterous affair, I hated him too. In fact, I kind of hoped that one of the other or both would just die and let me finish the book in peace, maybe with the focus on Sid and India's military rehabilitation hospital, or on Katie's overly ambitious personal goals. But no. Spoiler Alert: they didn't die. They kept ...more

Θυμάμαι την λαχτάρα μόλις έμαθα ότι θα εκδοθεί επιτέλους .... μιλάμε περιμέναμε για το τελευταίο της σειράς κοντά 3 χρόνια.
Θυμάμαι την χαρά που το βρήκα στο πάγκο στο μέρος που παραθέριζα... δεν το σκέφτηκα καν αν θα το αγοράσω ή όχι.
Θυμάμαι την χαρά που είχα όταν άρχιζα να διαβάζω τις πρώτες σελίδες....

This book is a whopper coming in at over 600 pages and set in locales across the world from 1914-1918. But let me tell you, do not be discouraged by its size. This is an amazing book. It's the third book in the Rose series by Jennifer Donnelly and its release has been very much waited for.

I don't even know where to begin. Ms.Donnelly has done such an amazing job with her research. She was very thorough and included some very important and relevant historical facts. And she did justice to them.

Δε θυμάμαι πότε ήταν η τελευταία φορά που ΜΙΣΗΣΑ ηρωίδα βιβλίου..Όχι απλά να μη μου άρεσε,να μη με ενθουσίασε,να με άφησε αδιάφορη..Να θέλω να τη δω να ΨΟΦΑΕΙ από την πρώτη σελίδα.Για να μην το θυμάμαι,μάλλον πάει πολύς καιρός.Γουίλα Όλντεν,πες αλεύρι...
Δε μου άρεσε αυτό το ζευγάρι,του Σέιμι με τη Γουίλα,από το δεύτερο βιβλίο κιόλας.Τη ψυλλιάστηκα τη συνέχεια και χαλάστηκα,έλα μου όμως που ήθελα να τελειώσω τη ρημάδα την τριλογία..Και πραγματικά,ευχαριστήθηκα όλες τις παράλληλες ιστορίες,χάρηκα

H ιστορία του Σέιμι δεν ήταν όπως θα ήθελα αλλα δεν ήταν κακή απλά δεν με ενθουσίασε.
Ισως έφταιγε η Γουίλα,που δεν μου άρεσε καθόλου σαν χαρακτήρας και δεν την ήθελα για τον Σέιμι.
Είχα καλύτερες προοπτικές γι'αυτο το βιβλίο και με απογοήτευσε.
Ωστόσο μου αρεσε περισσότερο απ το 1ο βιβλίο και λιγότερο απτο 2ο. Αν και οι χαρακτήρες βελτιώνονται σε αυτό το βιβλίο σε σχέση με το πρώτο(η Φιόνα και ο Τζο)το καλύτερο βιβλίο της τριλογίας για εμένα ειναι ''Το Τριαντάφυλλο του χειμώνα'',με τον Σίντ κ

Wow...that ending is I am still mind boggled. I need a few hours, or days, to gather my thoughts.

Although the information on the issue in the Middle East during the early 20th century was a bit bias, I still found the immense detail included to be extremely entertaining and intriguing. This historical fiction centers around the events prior, during, and after World War 1, and all the while the author was able to captivate readers with the characters and their struggles, and t

The Rose series by Jennifer Donnelly is a favorite!! It's right up there with the sweeping romantic sagas like Outlander and Bronze Horseman. The kind that has you wrapped up for hundreds of pages, traveling from continent to continent. I don't read them often, but the right ones really come through!! I was so caught up in the story! Donnelly does such a fabulous job of putting you in the moment, you can practically see and feel every setting you are in!!!

Jennifer is an amazing writer, she has a serious talent for weaving such emotional, vivid,and interesting stories.

I'm kind of sad that it's the last of this wonderful trilogy. I've really gotten to know the characters intimately during the course of this storyline. It's been sad, joyous, interesting, astonishing, and a really great ride.

The first of the trilogy really held me enthralled throughout the entire story of these amazing, yet real, characters. By the time I got around to reading this I had forgotten a lot, but somehow it all meshed together and the characters drew me into their lives once again.

Even though I had a hard time getting into this third story in the series I kept reading. I'm so glad I did because I really enjoyed the story of Seamie and Willa. I can't say that it was my favorite of the three books but like the other two books the writing was incredible. I love how Donnelly weaves her stories and intertwines her characters. I'm sad that this is the last book in this series, I'll miss these character.
I'm looking forward to reading Donnelly's Revolution and Northern Light.

Loved, loved, loved this entire trilogy!!! And this 3rd and final book surely did not disappoint. All 3 books were equally as good, but I would probably have to say that my favorite was The Tea Rose. All in all an amazing saga with strong characters ( Fiona Finnegan my absolute favorite), skillful writing, and many twists and turns along the way! Long and detailed but worth the time invested. These books became a real "guilty pleasure". Sigh

Малко по-разпиляна е тази част от розите.
Почти всички герои от предишните две книги присъстват и е доста трудно да следиш всичко и всички.
Но авторката пише толкова увлекателно, че не усещаш как стигаш до края.
Вплетени са много исторически факти отново.
Ще ми липсват героите от тази мащабна сага.
