    I just finished this yesterday. I thought it was decent, but I figured out the "twist" after about the second chapter.

    Finished super sad true love story by gary shteingart and then I read Julian barnes' latest, the sense of an ending. Loved both, especially the shteingart.
    Right now reading number9dream by david mitchell.

    I personally thinks it's pretty good book but it's somewhat repetitive since she is reliving the same day over and over again. My 12 year old sister loved it. The girl in the book is a mean girl but she undergoes changes after making different choices when reliving the same day.your neighbour is right it is a sad read but I can't say more about that without giving the ending away.

    I love it so much, I am only letting myself read a chapter per day so I can make it last longer.

    I actually found the first couple of chapters or so very tough to get into, but then you become invested in the characters and the rest is easy. It never picks up much speed though.

    I have just started reading P.G. Wodehouse. The Jeeves stories are very funny.

    Not a big loss. Unpopular opinion: it sucked.

    ^^That's not unpopular with me.

    I'm reading In Other Rooms, Other Wonders Daniyal Mueenuddin.

    It's linked short stories describe the interwoven lives of an Pakistani landowner, his servants, and his family. It's excellent.

    I just read "A Land More Kind Than Home" by Wiley Cash. Read it because we were going to Asheville and I like to read books set where we are road tripping. I really enjoyed it. It's set in a rural NC mountain town and is about the death of a young boy in a church. It's told from three perspectives. It was very interesting.

    Starting The Prague Cemetery for a second time and having a hard time getting into it. I gave up the first time and hopefully can get through it.

    I finished The Help and actually really enjoyed it once I got past the first few chapters. It's difficult to read the dialect of a Southern Black woman without it sounding somewhat offensive. Once I could "hear" the characters, it was an easier read. I enjoyed the characters quite a bit but hated some of the obvious auto-biographical pieces from the author (right down to the title of the book in the story).
