This book sounded so GREAT!! I was sooooooo anxious to get it. And then….and then….on the first page….the FIRST page…a discussion of breasts, semen and other ick factors too great to mention. Totally killed my desire to read this one.
I LOVED A Man Called Ove and Britt-Marie Was Here and went on after this one to love Beartown, but My Grandmother Asked Me….. did not do it for me. I found it cloying and obnoxious. Well written, but just not for me–maybe because I was enjoying a few weeks as an Empty Nester before one of them came back? And, I’m not yet a Grandmother, either.
Although one review called this “THE” romance of the year, all I got was a very smug taunting of “I went to Columbia and you didn’t.” And more of the well-worn New- York-IS-the-world. Of the three this is the only one I may try again. I started it on audio and not only didn’t like the start of the story, I didn’t enjoy the reader either.
And now a challenge:
If you read and loved any of these, leave me a comment to convince me to try again. Or, if you haven’t read them, leave a comment with a book you threw book and why. Yes, you may leave comments for both!
