- I love Gillian Flynn so freaking much. She's so good at writing stomach-turning female villains.

- This was the hardest book of hers for me to handle, because children were involved.

- At first I was pretty pleased with this romance novel. I mean, there were some cliches (how convenient - a three some of women friends, one with red hair, blonde hair, and the plain brunette). But the banter between Cal and Min was fun and it was c ...more

- A bit slow for me, took some effort to get through.

- I was pleased that she only had to make the recipes, not make them well . It made the project seem more appealing to me. The perfectionist in me must have assumed the recipes had to always work

- Cheryl's story moved very quickly and kept me engaged.

- She went through so much with her mom's death, her family falling apart, her marriage falling apart. Giving herself time to be alone was probably the best thing she could have done. Yes she wa

While I loved "Under the Net" by Iris Murdoch, "The Sea, the Sea" was hard to get through. Charles was so incredibly tiring to listen to, especially since he was so deluded. And I'm sure that that was the point - but that doesn't make it an enjoyable ...more

Is It Just Me?

Rate this book
Clear rating
- It was funny in a goofy sort of way, just like Miranda's humor.

- I wouldn't suggest it to anyone who hasn't seen her show. I feel like you need to see what she acts like as a person before reading or else she'd come across as a little crazy...
