it was ok

I thought this book was going to be really great.. the summer in the old house by the lake -- and I read til the end thinking the author would have a great twist at the end... but he didn't and it was a total waste of time when I have so many great books just sitting on my shelf waiting to be read.

Cheryl S. Doesn't it just kill you when that happens? I've been on a good run recently and have read 4 or 5 books in a row that I really liked--so now I'm bracing myself for the next stinker.

Thanks for the compassion! Next I read Plum Island by Nelson Demille. I thought he was supposed to be such a great suspense writer.... NOT!!! Got to within 50 pages of the end and gave up.

Now I am trying The Water is Wide by Pat Conroy. I think this one's going to be a winner.

Cheryl S. Ah, you said the magic words. I love Pat Conroy. In my opinion his books have gotten better and better over the years. He writes from his life more than any other author I'm familiar with. I think The Water is Wide is his first book.

I'm still on an excellent run. Just finished Last Days of Summer by Steve Kluger and it's a definate read again for me. The character development was terrific and the story broke my heart. What more could I ask?
