Gerçekten iyi, son üzücü olmasına rağmen.
Fuuuuuuuun! YA yazarlarından biri bana bu kitabı önerdi ve okuduğum için çok mutluyum. Seyahat bir gün için mükemmel bir kitap oldu. Hafif ve eğlenceli, ama tam bir sayfa çevirici. Yazar, başlangıçtan itibaren eyleme atlar ve ekmek kırıntıları gibi arka planı doldurur - birer birer ve çok yavaş. Onu sevdim! Çoğu zaman milyonlarca sorum vardı, bu da kitabın tüm casus temasına gerçekten uyuyordu. Ana karakter Kat, harika. Zeki ve habersiz ve yaptığı işte gerçekten çok iyi. Kat da sadık ve hassastır, bu da onu gerçekten ilginç bir casus yapar. Böyle eğlenceli bir okuma. Bunu bir kalp atışı içinde tavsiye ederim! Devam filmi okumak için sabırsızlanıyorum! (Ve filmi izleyin!)
Baba Booey, Baba Booey, Howard Stern's penis. Yup, I'm a Stern fan. While I type this, I am listening to Howard talk to former governor Jesse Ventura and guest announcer George Takei is with them this week. Thank you Sirius XM on teh Interwebz. Gary has been in the background of the Howard Stern Show as far back as I remember (NOTE: I started listening in the early nineties.) When I heard he was putting out a book, I figured it could make for an interesting read but it wasn't on my "must read" list. Last month, though, I was walking down Lincoln Road in Miami, Florida and walked into Books & Books. Lo and behold they has a signed copy so I figured: what the hell. They Call Me Baba Booey has the feel of two short books weaved into one: the story of Gary growing up in New York and his anecdotes about working with Howard and the crew. Ironically, I found myself more drawn to the stories of his family since (somehow) I found myself relating... especially since my mother has dealt with similar issues. This wasn't the great American novel, but it was a fun read worth some of your spare time.
For some reason, I held off on reading this one for a while; I think the flap copy had me convinced there was going to be a major division between Holmes and Mary, for real this time, and I couldn't bear the thought of it. Happily, I overcame my fears and this turned out to be one of my favorite Mary Russell novels since A Monstrous Regiment of Women. The main plot threads took some time to get going and I didn't realize until nearly the end that it's a Big Freaking Cliffhanger, but I liked the focus on Holmes' past and Mary's interactions with Mycroft.
Utterly ashamed to admit that I have read this, considering how I continually deplore my mother's habits of consuming romance novels. It was a slow weekend I happened to find the book lying on the dresser in my parent's room. I must have been incredibly bored. Romance novels do have an addictive quality which probably comes precisely because of their predictability. Heart-warming, safe this novel is, that and utterly banal.
This lady was a sick ass bitch! This book disgusted me more than any other book I have read.
