Like Better Homes and Gardens, ninja hippy edition.
I loved the concept of working through the alphabet to tell the story, and thought it was done very well.
I was very excited at the prospect of a grown up Sweet Valley book. I grew up reading the Sweet Valley Twins and Sweet Valley High. The first problem with this book is that not all authors who successfully write youth novels are meant to write for adults. The writing itself is unimpressive. The author seems to be out of touch with the age group that this book is aimed at. The characters were fairly flat and the plot predictable. Don't get me wrong, it was interesting to see where the girls ended up but the book misses the mark as far as creativity and believability. Just so you know...the girls still have gorgeous blond hair, aqua blue eyes and slender bodies. Very important as it is mentionned repeatedly in every Sweet Valley book. The book is a quick read though so if you curiousity gets the better of you at least you aren't going to have to devote too much time to reading.
Really LOVED the short Sookie story in this. Laughed at poor Bill and Amelia proves to be a great character. The other stories are just as good. Some a bit more twisted than others, but still had me guessing.
Not as funny as some of his other stuff, but overall, I liked it.
Gave really great basic info and recipes that can easily be modified to your tastes. My favorites were the Crab Spring Rolls and the Shrimp Lo Mein. These two recipes are great and you can easily use them as guidelines and use whatever ingredients you want!
i did not finsh it it starts out a little shakey with the first chapter with micheal.j.roscoe it gets better the more far you get
I loved this!
Fighting the good fight, finishing well, these are themes of this book. The author discusses having a faith that is strong, the agon or fight that we are in, the good hard that is this life. I had a hard time getting into it, but then the chapters started flowing much better. Having joy through suffering, a wow! feeling when beholding God, these are some of the chapters the author takes us through. "The great gospel mystery is not that bad things sometimes happen to good people but that such a good and gracious thing has happened to bad people, guilty and broken people, who have discovered God's amazing love to be just that - amazing." He counters nominal Christianity, just living life without really growing in our faith, without really understanding what salvation is. Recommended reading for Christians looking to bolster their faith, a shot in the arm so to speak for continuing on in the fight. *I received this book free from the publisher in exchange for my review.
** spoiler alert ** Kasischke effectively develops the voices of the three young women off on spring break. What happens to one of the world is frightening and all to real. When one of the girl disappears she really vanishes from the story itself in that the reader has no idea if she is alive or dead. The author managed to keep me guessing till the end.
