I was sick and this was available at the digital library. I actually liked it better than the other two books I've read of Ms. Quinn's. The premise was admittedly far-fetched, but the characters were likeable and imperfect and the dialog was funny an ...more

Loved this so much more than I was anticipating. The beginning was a little depressing (all the statistics about declining mental/physical function), but the rest of the book was actually somewhat optimistic. It's one of those books I can't stop talk ...more

Didn't like this one quite as well as its sequel - too much advancement of plot via misunderstandings/lack of communication. Still a quick, easy read, and I'll add other books from the series to my rainy day fund of mindless comfort reading.

I thought about choosing this for book club but was worried it would be too depressing. It wasn't depressing at all and would have made an excellent book club pick. I loved it so much! A cautionary tale for those of us who get carried away with sayin ...more

My manager had everyone on the team read this, and I was pleasantly surprised by how readable it was and how much it made me think about the hiring process. It's directed at hiring software engineers, but a lot of the lessons learned would apply acro ...more

The review I read for this said that Jane Austen fans would either love it or hate it. Pride and Prejudice is, bar none, my favorite book ever and I went into Longbourn with some apprehension about what Ms. Baker might do to my favorite characters. T ...more

Perfectly adequate pleasure reading, although Ms. Heyer got carried away with her slang and insider jokes and current events in places so as to render whole conversations unintelligible. I found everyone's ability to (view spoiler) ...more
