All kinds of foolery, with focus on books, life and regular kitty reports
Sorry you didn't love this one - I was surprised at how much I liked it.
I noticed your enthusiastic comment at Carrie's blog! I wish I'd loved it but I just didn't. It definitely had its moments; it just wasn't ever a book that sucked me in.
I find I often like books on art and artists. Although I think I would have a hard time with some of the leaps the main characters must make as far as the mystery is concerned. I don't care for repeated bad decisions.
That really bothered me, I must admit. When a character says there's no real basis for a meaningful relationship but then goes ahead and dives into an affair anyway, you know she's only in it for the sex. Bo-ring. My opinion. :) I'm not really a mystery fan so I probably shouldn't even comment on that aspect, but from my point of view, she came to conclusions without necessarily having a decent basis. Someone who really enjoys mysteries might disagree with me on that. At any rate, a lot of people like The Art Forger so if you're interested in books about art and artists, I suggest you give it a go. You can always stop if the book isn't thrilling you, right?
I started this one but I haven't gotten very far just yet. The dialogue seems just the tiniest bit off. Like, it sounds fake'ish. That will bug until this one grabs me by the hair, if it grabs me by the hair. We shall see.
I don't know that the dialogue jumped out at me but I think I felt like something was a little off all the way through the book. It just wasn't any one particular thing. Suffice it to say, The Art Forger was not for me. BUt, I love Algonquin and will give anything they publish a go, I confess. I'm not swimming in regret. :)
My book club loved this way more than I expected! SO I was glad we chose this and we are all going together to the ISG museum in April. Looking forward to that.
Yeah, I think I'm the odd one out. It just wasn't for me. Great excuse to go to the museum, though!
