Benim tarzım değil, kitap bir armağandı. Almak ve indirmek kolaydır. Hayat boyu süren bir film gibi okuyun. Karakterler mümkün gibiydi ama çok zorlandı.
Hint deneyim ilham başka bir mücevher. Bu görünümün acımasız romantizm şaşırtıcı. Bu oldukça politik ama yine de yoğun kişisel durumdan bir şey yakalıyor. Bu romanın benim üzerimdeki etkisini fazla vurgulayamıyorum.
Diğer tüm paragraflar pastanın sizi nasıl şişmanlattığı hakkında yorum bırakmış olsaydı bu kitabı daha çok isterdim, ama ha ha ha, herkes nasıl şişman olduklarını biliyor ve sürekli diyet yapabilirsin ama yine de, biliyorsun, var kek? Pbbt
Eh. I was really excited about reading this book. I waited to get it for the longest time and I had just heard great things about it. I have to say that I was let down. Don't get me wrong, the story was phenomenal. How Greg Mortenson got started and all the things he did/is continuing to do in Pakistan just blows me away. He really is an inspiration. However, the writing was pretty awful. I couldn't get into his style and I got bored with it even when kind of exciting things were happening. There were lengthy descriptions of random stuff that didn't really matter and all these flowery words that seemed misused. My favorite chapter, because I love a good love story, was Six Days. I 'aww'ed all the way through it. I also enjoyed the very beginning and the very end. Outside of that, this was just ok for me. I wish that he had gotten someone else to write his story because it could have been incredible. And I have to say: Although I kind of trudged through this book and didn't all the way enjoy it, I'm glad I read it because it opened my eyes to things that I was previously unaware of, and that's always a positive thing.
Five years after her boyfriend left her, Korie has moved on with her life. She’s in the best physical shape, her business is prospering and she’s involved with millionaire businessman DeVaughn Harris. Her ex boyfriend, Darren, on the other hand, has not gotten over walking out on Korie. While everything in his life is going well, the only thing missing is Korie. Is a second time around in the cards for Korie and Darren? Three things I can always count on from Darrin Lowery is 1) great sex, 2) a good song selection and 3) a story to talk about. In the case of SECOND TIME AROUND, I didn’t quite get what I wanted. While the concept was interesting, SECOND TIME AROUND was very repetitive, resulting in redundancy and making this read not as enjoyable as it could be. Repetition included the constant references to how much things cost - a 500-dollar dress, 3,000-dollar custom made suit, 100,000-dollar car, 4,000-dollar bed, 2000-dollar weave. I found it quite annoying and not necessary to the plot’s development. The story also veered off many times taking unnecessary side trips by giving too much information about irrelevant characters or details not pertinent to the plot. (Example: the explanation of Bryce’s therapy sessions.) I normally come away from one of Darrin’s book with the need to make a CD based on the songs he mentioned, but in this novel the constant mention of what particular song was playing each and every time a character did something was excessive. Also excessive: such-and-such has a body like . Women had bodies long before Beyonce. I would have preferred if the characters were described instead of just being likened to a celebrity, with a little less emphasis on the physical and more on their personalities. Also of concern, the narration. This novel occasionally slips from third to first-person narration, particularly at the end of chapters. And there was more telling than showing. The plot slowed down considerably with the narrating of situations and then would pick back up momentarily with dialogue, only to slow down again with narration. Despite the issues I had with SECOND TIME AROUND, it’s not a bad read and Darrin definitely is a talented brother, but this just wasn’t his best book. Clear of the redundancy and editing quirks, this could have been a really great read. That said, I look forward to Darrin’s next book.
