You Should Have Known
You Should Have Known
Offered by Hachette Book Group
Price: $12.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Delicious Irony, April 18, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Who writes a book about how to pick a perfect partner, the subject of your life's work, and then ends up having made the poorest choice of all?! The irony is bold and delicious (don't we love to read about someone else's spectacular relationship failures?) The pay off is that the book has a good ending, the right ending, not an I-told-you-so ending.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Lovely Mythical, Magical Love Story, April 18, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Crane Wife (Kindle Edition)
Finally, a love story that is for us "not so young" lovers! Just the right amount of fable mixed with it-could-really-happen reality leaves you with a lovely recipe for an enjoyable read that allows you to suspend the cold hard facts of love as we know it today and enjoy a love story for what you imagine it could really be!


Neverwhere

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Neil Gaiman, November 24, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Neverwhere (Kindle Edition)
Loved this facinating book about a child who is adopted by graveyard souls and lives his childhood out on the edge of both the living and the dead. His adventures are exciting and original, it may expand your imagination; what could be better?!

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique, original facinating read, November 24, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I enjoyed this book not only because it had an unusual story, but it was well written in the first person. It was a satisfyingly positive story of what some call an "idiot savant", reminicent of Rain Man.


The Salt God's Daughter

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!, October 21, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A deliciously quirky tale of two step-sisters growing up with a single "Californiafied" mom straight out of the 1960's hippy generation, with a tad of mystical fantasy thrown in for good measure! If you are from CA like I am you will enjoy that the story takes place in well known parts of the state where you could have easily visited or even grown up in yourself!

1.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't finish the book, October 6, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Tedious attention to factual detail, the story just does not move along. Similar to "The Unlikely Pilrimage of Harold Fry", but without the story.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for Mature Readers, September 7, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Every Day (Kindle Edition)
Loved the concept, very original and well conceived, however the story was a disappointment; unless you are in High School, then I think you will love it. Too much like "Fifty First Dates".

4.0 out of 5 stars Worthy Read!!, September 7, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Irwin does an outstanding job; this highly readable novel is my favorite mix of a well written story mixed with just enough supernatural elements to keep you engrossed. I didn't stop reading to the end, and kept the novel's unique circumstances in my mind long after; who would be MY ghost, and why!

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, September 7, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
From the title of this book I thought it might be an original and possibly captivating story, but I was wrong. Nothing original or especially entertaining here, just sad.

You won't be forgetting about this book soon! Delightfully original and utterly engrossing, endless possibilities become reality. How the product affects the customers is poignantly and carefully described by Frankel with skill and talent! You will laugh and cry in quick succession!!
