This book I belive was on the New York's best sellers, and when reading it I find myself turn between "I can see why" and "What is the world coming to?"
The -I can see why, part of me sees the beautiful crafted emotions that each person had and how close each one was to the edge. The writing was itself well done. Very British.
But now, that this was done very British I find myself wondering if ALL British women are so nosy and caddy or only the ones in this book? I have, in the past, seen other BBC shows with women the same way...
There was VERY FEW people I cared about in this book... one was a random person that I kept wishing would redeem these awful people! The other was of course the women on the train, even hat at times I was reconsidering. (view spoiler)[Woman-on-train/Rachel: Borderline crazy, emotionally dependent and unstable and the cliche busybody detective. Jess/Megan: Emotional hinged, & flighty. Anna: the mistress now wife, greedy, caddy, petty, etc! All around She was the one I MOST hated! Random-Red-head-guy/Andy: Just there to see if you might think he did it. Tom: abusive emotionally and physically & compulsive liar. Jason/Scott: the poor sod, hot & cold, abusive, emotional hinged or unstable or something along that line. (hide spoiler)]
The out come of the story was at times predictable and disappointing in the end. I feel no true justice was done. (view spoiler)[ Did the murder of Megan just go on without redemption? Tom is dead tell the cops that he did it in a fight of rage, look at Rachel!! (hide spoiler)] What can I say? I am a bloody American who is ignorant of British lit? I can go for that, but I love me some Sherlock Holmes and the Hitchhiker's Guide! In those book at least even the men wasn't as horrible as they where in this one!["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>...more
So this is my first Nicholas Sparks book, I have read some reviews and saw that this isn't his best work but if I like his crap I should LOVE his bestSo this is my first Nicholas Sparks book, I have read some reviews and saw that this isn't his best work but if I like his crap I should LOVE his best, right?
This book was just like all the other romance crap I have read in the past. Mr. Sparks did a REALLY good job for getting to the heart of his feelings and making each person with deep emotions! I have never read a book done by a man like that and was presently surprised! I might read some of his other books.
I have been told that he tends to be a religious person and I could see it when reading this book at time, note I said at times. (view spoiler)[ The thing that took me back was this book was, in a way okay with cheating on your partner for no good reason then 'it felt right'. Now, I understand WHY someone might do that but it doesn't make it any less wrong or right. I am friends with some whom have and I know their reason and said you did what you had to knowing and believe that no blame should be given to them but the ones that gave them no other out, but there was no reason for these 2 people in the book. I know how that feels, the feel right to be with someone you have no claim to but your strength of will and moral high ground here religious writer? the guy she was with was away a lot but he was good to her she should of been good to him and left that one before hopping into bed with another man. (hide spoiler)] Just saying!
Besides my rage at some of the "Choises" they made in this book I feel like this is like any other romance with TONS of emotions in it! If you want to feel love, pain, sorrows this is your book if you feel like passing on the emotional baggage train then pass this book.["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>...more
