I don't know, I found one of those books in a free library last year, and even though Kinsey is cynical, she's also so gosh darned down home about it all. Maybe the difference is that it's a more contemporary cynicism.You think the Kinsey Milhone series needs more cynicism? I find Milhone to be fairly cynical and sometimes the endings aren't particularly satisfying in the way Harry Potter books are.
So that's how that book made it on to my library list!I’ve mentioned it in sekret sources but I second Prancer’s recommendation of How To Build A Girl by Caitlin Moran. I haven’t laughed so much reading a book in a long time. Moran is three years older than me so every single reference to cartoons, comics, tv shows and music speaks almost exactly to the things I watched, read and listened to.
Apparently a film has been made of the book and it was released last week. I’ll be interested to see if it’s as funny as the book.
Same here - basically an identical experience about a year or two ago. I’m glad to know I’m not the only person who didn’t click with this book.So that's how that book made it on to my library list!
I really expected to love the book, as this type of story is right up my alley, but was really let down. Returned to the library about a third of the way in.
