Barbara Have this on my Kindle....maybe on my trip.

Susan Johnson I only have this because Allan rated it one of his top five. It isn't something I would normally pick up.

I'll be curious what you both think of it. When I first started seeing it, it didn't seem like my cup of tea. But then when I saw Allan rated it so highly and you both have it, it made me reconsider. Not that I'm easily influenced, or anything :)

Luckily I got it as a Kindle daily deal so it's not taking up shelf space.

Allan Guys, this might be a 'guy' thing, as I know that a lot of the female members of the group read this and didn't like it. It's not like 'One Day' anyway...

Susan Johnson I'm intrigues now, Allan. Is it really like Hemingway (male oriented)? Maybe we should just designate one person to read. Still I value your opinion so much. After all you gave me Willie Vlautin and Adrian McKinty.

Emma Flanagan I'm not sure it's necessarily a guy thing. I had personal reasons for not enjoying it which aren't particularly linked to gender. You're right though it's no One Day.

Allan Susan, it's not male orientated in a misogynist way or anything,but given what I've seen some write about the book, it seems to be that male readers identify with / are more sympathetic towards the lead character. I must add that I loved the author's first three books, including One Day, but this one is more like his first two, Starter For Ten and The Understudy, given the hapless male featured.

Susan Johnson I'm reading this because Allan likes it so much.


message 10: by Allan (new)

Allan I really hope you don't hate it, Susan-I know others in the group were disappointed! :)


message 11: by Donna (new)

Donna McCaul Thibodeau I would not say it's male oriented at all. I didn't like it because I found all three of the main characters to be annoying. If I read a book, I want to like at least one person in it.
