This is a wonderful book. The recording is quite good, with the exception of some weird music that pops up occasionally. It's enough to annoy older folks, though kids probably won't mind as much. Don't let that stop you from checking it out, but be prepared!
This is one of my favorite books. The writing and charecters are phenomenal. I would also highly recommend the movie!
This is one of those highly anticipated summer books but I thought it fell flat. There's no denying that Makkai's writing is excellent, but her main charecter Lucy drove me crazy. She was whiny and self-centered to a point that completely distracted me from the writing. I also found the plot to be so nonsensical as to lose me completely.
If you liked Chicago, you should check this movie out! Generally I am not a huge fan of musicals, but the music, dancing, and politics in this movie are so well woven together I would recommend it to just about anyone. Liza Minnelli is simply fantastic in her Oscar-award winning role.
This is a good beach read. It drags a little at time and the ending feels rushed but overall it's a quick and interesting read.
