I was so intrigued by the first section and couldn't figure out what was going on in the second. That is why Goodreads is so great: to come to the rescue...rescuing me from another 6 hours of time wasted.

I just cannot finish this book. I feel like i...more

Fun summer read! Main character seemed younger than the age that she is portrayed...more like 31 rather than 39. This isn't a mind bender not filled with steamy scenes so it is a nice summer read on vaca with the family.

Guests on Earth by Lee Smith
" With 50 pages left, I closed the book. Why? There were too many skips in the story line, too many unanswered questions, too many sequelae that simply did not make sense within the foundation or characterization established by the author. There wer... " Read more of this review »

There must be something wrong with me but I can't get through this book. I am 80 pages in and I just don't get it. I think "Death" is a cheap trick to make the book arty/poetic/unique/breaking ground/whatever but I just don't get it. This is one of t...more

This is a FUN book!

I liked the first book in this series and will read the next one...PLEASE Ms. Lafferty, keep on writing! This is a pop culture palooza of fun references and actions. It will not win awards as great literature and won't change your...more
