Çoğunlukla bu kitaptan keyif aldım, ama aptalca bir sonu var. Bunun korkunç bir konu nedeniyle çocuklar için (kesinlikle 14 yaşından küçük olmayanlar için) olduğuna inanamıyorum, ancak eğlenceli bir okuma.
Since I love the Outlander series, this novel had appeal for me. The main character Audrey is a time traveler like Claire Fraser, but she is connected to the past through dreams she shares with a boy (from the past) whom she met briefly when she was 10. Audrey must travel to the past once again to find her future and rid herself of these haunting dreams.
I liked most of these stories, but they felt too short, which I guess is the peril of making an anthology from a reading series.
I just listened to the unabridged version read by Stanley Tucci. Oddly, an actor who I do not like at all. I am sure he is a very kind and thoughtful man. He's definitely a nuanced actor, but I feel punished watching him because other than The Devil Wears Prada he's often in stuff with Campbell Scott and it's "good for you". Nevertheless, it was a wonderful audiobook. Made all the humor much funnier. I cried every time they mentioned that crazed dude catting around the dealership waiting for the protag to show up and give him a job. I pictured Lucas Haas wearing bunny slippers and playing a casio. I pictured Bruce Willis going apeshit on Nick Nolte. Ha. Good times great oldies. you know, it's an awfully underrated movie. Wait, we were talking about the book.
It's wonderful. If you're into writing you should be into reading it. Thanks to Christa for posting "Fahrenheit 451," which led to the train of thought that involved remembering this.
"Smart" chick lit. A book that reminds you of why one leaves Philadelphia and moves to NYC. Also, a book that tells a pretty funny story about a cat lady. Otherwise, whatever, read US weekly.
