But none of them could imagine just how challenging the next 10 days are going to be. I also wish there had been more time spent on Ellen and Jack's relationship and Ellen's with her dad. The one tha I am addicted to Liane Moriarty's books. Will recommend it to friends. We learn about the two women 's underlying thoughts and feelings.
You even managed to make me sympathise and empathise with a stalker! I have not read a book yet that I've not enjoyed. Hypnotherapist Ellen is fascinated by what makes people tick. Although perhaps not as dramatic as or as emotional as, it was still an entertaining read that had me both laughing out loud and tearing up. This goes towards my Aussie Author Challenge 2018 on I liked the book but it was way too long. The truth is there are different perspectives on love, loss, and life and even on the reasons there is a relationship struggle. Nothing actually happens for much of the time and yet the author seems to be promising so much that never actually materialises. Well, I've decided those days are over.
I literally had no expectations for this book at all as I knew nothing about it. I warmed to both of them quickly. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding social interactions, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy. Reading Liane Moriarty is like spending the afternoon with a wise, witty, comforting friend. I thought long and hard about it and could not give this book less.

I should have told them about how when I was at school, if the day became unexpectedly cold, Mum would turn up in the school yard with a jacket for me. Like some other reviewers have said, the only really interesting and vibrant character is Saskia, the stalker. A part of her mind registered this: the way her body responded first. It was built on the side of the house like an enclosed balcony. We are not however privy to his direct feelings in the story, as Moriarty has chosen not to include this point of view in the novel.
Some of the lines made me laugh out loud. I thought at one point that the book had come to an abrupt end but then saw I had over 3 hours to go so smiled to myself and waited for the twist that must be coming. I didn't find it warmly humorous or gently poignant. The premise was good and could have been very interesting. Kept listening until the early hours - just couldn't stop! His girlfriend had been like a mom to his son for years, yet he suddenly broke off all contact.
Maybe it's the age thing, maybe since I'm getting older I like to read about women who are older and to see how they navigate their life. So when she falls in love with Patrick, the fact that he has a stalker doesn't faze her in the slightest. Moriarty has again excelled in the character domain, in her creation of the character of Saskia. I liked how the author explored the reasons someone has a hard time letting go of a past relationship, and how that could drive them to hang on through stalking. What was troubling about this book was that it was somewhere between disturbing and on the edge of being scary but was presented in such a matter of fa The idea of someone's new boyfriend having a stalker seemed like it could be a rather interesting premise, so I was excited to read this book. Moriarty does a great job of creating believable characters, struggling with things that we have all experienced. She is that sort of girl.
I should have used my own words. I work really hard to make clear, honest recommendations. He seemed fearful and slightly ashamed. This book was somewhat of a disappointment, however. Flat ballet shoes, black tights, embroidered ethnic-looking skirt and cream wraparound cardigan. Instead of making the stalker seem like an evil, dangerous predator although Patrick saw her this way, While nothing extremely dramatic and gasp-worthy happens in this book unlike some of Moriarty's other works , this was a fairly quick read, and one that I thoroughly enjoyed.
Flowers, gifts, trips to France: nothing is too good for his family. Ellen doesnât know it, but she already has. She, once again, explores what makes us human. You were in a trance! She was beloved by her parents, friends, and teachers. Braced for the worst, Ellen is pleasantly surprised. On the audio front This was beautifully narrated by Caroline Lee.
Amazingly, the effervescent comedy and troubling melodrama combine to create a satisfying beach read, escapist but not unintelligent. I loved the book, don't get me wrong. You know very early on that the stalker is masquerading as one of Ellen's patients, but she could be any one That was one of the points of the book. Something sweet against something which could be quite ugly. It allows us to do what we are loath to do: consider all sides of an issue we may be facing too. For a moment she saw her mother, eyes lifted to heaven.
