For the first time in a very long time, I actually skipped to the end of the book to make sure what I *thought* was going to happen happens so that I could be prepared for it. Not a fan of sad stories. But, when I got to the end, I realize that I didn't care enough about the characters to be all that upset by anything that happened. This was just kind of a strange book...not super heartwarming, not particularly funny, not a whole lot of real romance. Finished it, but not excited about it.
Just another fun read from Ms.Andrews. Lots of silly twists and turns that you can easily predict if you want to think that hard. I do like the storyline about the little local soft drink company. Made me think about the local soda companies in WI when I was a kid. They are a dying breed!
My boys love this story, along with Hansel and Diesel and the Three Little Rigs (also plays on Mother Goose/Fairy Tale type stories). It's your basic play on "The Three Little Pigs" without a lot to add to it, except a fun robot setting and illustrations that my boys really like. A good story!
A good story to read during the Olympics. One of the storylines involves a child who is seriously ill and I honestly wished she could have been written as just a child depressed or psychologically neglected by her parents' rigorous training schedules. I'm not a fan of reading about kids potentially dying. But, I got a feeling I could handle the ending (it's a good book---predictable, but good) so I kept at it. Definitely a good beach or bedtime read and perfect for this month!
Loved Good In Bed but not her more recent books. This one feels more authentic, maybe because it's loosely based on her experiences with her own failed tv show.
