5.0 out of 5 stars An Enjoyable Read September 6, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Finding Margo left me so frustrated with the character, in a good way though. In the beginning pages, Margo would react one way to her circumstances, when I wanted her to react another. The author wrote Finding Margo in such a way that one quickly becomes vested in Margo's life. Margo's husband is a verbally abusive swine that you just want to slap him into the next century.

Margo leaves her husband on the motorway when his verbal abuse reaches new heights.

The people that she encounters along the way are richly drawn giving the reader secondary characters that move the story along.

Finding Margo is Susanne O'Learys second book that I have read, the first was Swedish For Beginners which I thoroughly enjoyed as well. Thank you Susanne, I look forward to reading Fresh Powder next.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Mid-life Coming of Age Story September 11, 2010
By BigAl
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Some may think it as a strange claim, but I see "Finding Margo" as a coming-of-age story. Margo's emotionally abusive and controlling husband and her efforts to please him have in many ways stilted her growth into adulthood. When she reaches her breaking point and leaves him while in a foreign country she has no plan - she just has to escape. What follows is Margo "finding herself" in all the ways that cliché implies. Margo learns to take care of herself, stand up for herself, and make decisions for herself, all against a cultural backdrop as foreign to Margo as it will be for most readers. An excellent read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Convincing characters, beautiful settings, well written September 26, 2010
By jstmgn
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"Finding Margo" by Susanne O'Leary tells the story of a woman who had already made and accepted the choices that would determine her path. Suddenly, during a road trip in France, she is slapped in the face when one of those choices -- her sophisticated doctor husband -- shows his true, dark colors. Now, Margo must decide what she really wants -- and does not want -- in her life.

On her own in Paris, and abandoning all she has expected and accepted in the past, Margo faces a string of obstacles -- friends, mates, class structure, long-hidden family dynamics -- in discovering her new self.

To the last moment, you wonder whether Margo has in fact redirected her destiny, or if she has instead repopulated the original script. Will she realize her original choices in life were the right fit for her, or has she broken the chains that bind one to an undeviating course? You may think you see the ending but, sadly or not, the new Margo will surprise you.

The characters in "Finding Margo" are beautifully created and possess familiar and believable personalities. These people evolve in realistic and sometimes unexpected directions, a credit to Susanne O'Leary's ability to understand and portray the complexity of real-life personalities. Add in the author's Parisian city and French countryside backdrops, and you find yourself pausing to savor the scenes of this created world but feeling compelled to continue on Margo's journey -- just not too quickly please; make it last.

Susanne O'Leary has a smooth, flowing and unrestrained writing style. She has written "Finding Margo" with a playful and energetic touch, yet with a depth suitable to the eternal quandary of how one chooses to live life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finding Susanne O'Leary February 12, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the second novel I have read by Susanne O'Leary, and they have both been hazardous to my sleep. With my husband snoring softly next to me in the dark, I cuddle up with my laptop with its Amazon Kindle app, and read far too long into the night. This was a perfectly realized story. It has a well-contrived plot, great characters, clothes, food, travel, and twists all the way to the end. There are no red-herrings here, but the foreshadowing is so delicate you can ignore it, or posit your own conclusions.
I read Fresh Powder just a few days ago, and enjoyed it immensely. It was with some concern that I purchased Finding Margo; afraid it couldn't possibly equal Fresh Powder. But I think it even surpassed it. I'm so happy to have a new author to follow!

5.0 out of 5 stars Run away to Paris!!!! April 11, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
No matter how great your life is, who hasn't dreamt of running away from everyone and everything to some exotic place. In this particular story, Margo's life was far from great so she literally walks away from her obnoxious husband... at a gas station haha! This book was a delight. The characters were hilarious, and I was a little sad when I finished the book because it was over! I'll definitely have to try some other of Ms. O'Leary's books.

4.0 out of 5 stars 2 star review unfair February 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I must be honest - I downloaded this book only because it was free. And because it was free, I had zero expectations. When I read the 2-star review I almost deleted it, but I'm glad I didn't.

The book's a fun, breezy read. Sure there are couple inconsistencies (like she pays for ice cream though she doesn't have money), but I can live with them as long as the writing is good (which it is), and there aren't too many errors (there aren't).

The story has eccentric characters, mystery, different threads which come together neatly in the end.

For me this was worth a read, and not just because it was free. Even if I'd paid for it, I'd have felt I got my money's worth.

2.0 out of 5 stars okay
I thought this story was a little simplistic. A very easy read, but not a page turner. Very predictable events and especially the ending. - the whole story , in fact.
