"shine shine shine"

my take: it's interesting to think about if the authors you like to read read books you'd like as of my favorites, joshilyn jackson, recommended this. she reads it for the audio version. i wish i'd imagined more of a southern accent for this as i read it ~ i would have liked it a bit better.

mostly the problem for me was that i am in the middle of remodeling ... sleeping in the guest bedroom and not having space/presence/time to really get into it well enough. so i moved through it very slowly. too slowly. i never really caught the fun of it.

what i liked about it ... crazy characters. wacky plot.

my source: joshilyn jackson's blog via daughter anne; sister carey ~ who listened to the audio by jj and liked it a lot.

my verdict: good. recommending you read it in bigger chunks.

  1. Did you buy this one? Sounds like I should have it on vacation with me here in the south... Could be getting a big chunk in! Maybe I can get Peter to listen to the audio on the drive home with me.
