karenyhamilton: I very much enjoyed the premise of visiting other lives. It was a book that made me stop and think, and I wrote many quotes down in my reading notebook.

karenyhamilton: A very good read. I am pretty picky about mainstream fiction, but this one captured my attention and I read it in one day. I did find the conflicts towards the end a bit cliched, but then I am a a literature major, so it is difficult to hold my attention unless a book is 'classic' material. My favorite quote: "Listen here, folks," Bachelor Alf explained. "The hint is to let your subconscious find the anomaly. Our brains are meant identify breaks in a pattern. We evolved that way, many millions of years ago. You are not searching for a thing so much as you are searching for an inconsistency of things, or an absence." This is in reference to mudlarking, an activity I fell in love with years ago and apply to everything - treasure hunting, writing, poetry, painting, etc.

Explicações
karenyhamilton: With shades of Isabel Allende and Gabriel García Márquez, I immediately was sucked into this story. I love a story that crosses the boundaries of time and reality while remaining just a bit on earth. A narrative of the bonds of family and love and loss and just what will we humans do for those we love, I couldn't stop reading. I had no idea where the story would end up and was a little let down by the ending, which seemed to cross too far into the boundaries I mentioned above (a little trite), but overall enjoyed the read.

karenyhamilton: I only find one of these 'can't put down' books a couple of times a year. I am extremely picky with fiction. It took me to places I was unfamiliar with for starters. The way Harvell describes music gave me a whole new way of looking at the intricacies of singing and a new appreciation for those with that gift. I actually stopped reading after the 1st few chapters because the narrative was a bit weighed down with describing the bells. Later, I went back and reread the description and was enthralled. The story just flowed effortlessly, and I could not stop reading. Great history, great characters, great story.

karenyhamilton: Could not put down! I read this in one day because I simply had to know what happened next. As always, Atwood delivers with amazing characters who we already know and love (or hate!). And she leaves you with the question: what would YOU do to survive?
