Detalhes da Obra

I'd Know You Anywhere de Laura Lippman

  1. 11
    Dark Places de Gillian Flynn (Bookmarque)
    Bookmarque: This one is less inert and domestic than Lippman's novel. This time the survivor is affected by her experience and while she may not be likable, she's at least interesting. It also deals with memory of the crime that may or may not be faulty.
  2. 00
    Still Missing de Chevy Stevens (vancouverdeb)
    vancouverdeb: I've read both -and enjoyed them very much. They are different -but also have much in common.
  3. 00
    The Other Half Lives de Sophie Hannah (LelandGaunt)

I understand the vehemence of some of the postings when they say they hated this book because of the main character - I felt it too but I think it is because she didn't do what we would do. And dare I say that if she would have done what we would have done her character would probably be dead. She was measured and calm in all that she did - I think of her as an old soul. I do appreciate Lippman's ability to create totally despicable characters as this book contained more than it's share. All in all, a gripping listen in the car. ( )

This was a hardback. And a huge page turner. Kept you in suspense from the very first page!!!! Excellent job!!! ( )

I like Lippman's Tess Monaghan series but I LOVE her other work. The series works, keeps me interested in Baltimore and Tess's various friends and relatives, and is satisfying. Her other work, including this novel, takes us to other places.

Eliza Benedict, in her earlier incarnation as Elizabeth Lerner, was abducted. She was fifteen, and was abducted by a man who had murdered other girls her age. For some reason he kept her alive, and because she was alive he took to the road, traveling all around the interior of the country.

Eliza is happily married, has children, feels she has escaped her past, yet not quite. She wonders, from time to time, why she was left alive. So when her abductor, on death row, wants to talk to her, she doesn't flat out say no.

But what does he really want? And will she get what she came for if she talks to him? This novel takes us into the lives of Eliza and of Walter Bowman, exploring their inner selves. It is paced beautifully, giving us hints about what really happened, making us wonder if Eliza's memory is accurate, until I could not leave it alone. I had to know. ( )

Sorry, I had to DNF this thing at 5 percent. I have loved Lippman's Tess Monaghan series and this just fell flat. I stopped and started this book five times over the past two weeks and nothing about it grabbed me. Since it's due back soon to the library I just decided to put myself out of misery and DNF it formally.

I think what the problem is that Lippman's start of the book jumps around too much and I can't get a handle at what is going on. We have a woman named Eliza who is fretting her daughter, Iso (yeah I hated that name) is pulling away from her and wants to be more like a model. Her daughter also seems to criticize her constantly and generally sounds awful. Eliza has a son and I can't even remember her name. Considering the book synopsis, I thought this would be really good. Maybe if Lippman had started with Eliza's kidnapping first and then went back to the present day it would have worked better. ( )

Eliza Benedict was kidnapped as a teenager and held hostage. She's also the only victim that her kidnapper let live. Now, over 20 years later, she receives a letter from the man who kidnapped her. He's down to his final days on death row and he wants to talk to her.


I'm not sure how I felt about this book. It was a good read and entertaining when I was reading it but it wasn't memorable - a book that I can recall in vivid details two weeks later. ( )
