Okay, about broadening my horizons; I decided to read Stephen King. My husband likes his book, and I did enjoy Carrie, The Eyes of the Dragon and Fire Starter. I even watch the movies and enjoyed it. I started reading Lisey's Story. I don't know if it's the reader or the book, but I've never encountered a whinier book lately. Seriously. It sounds like it was written by the other Stephen King, the boring one. While it's true that it might be because I'm not used to 'non-romantic' tales, but this one just about put it to sleep while my blood boils.
They say it's easy to criticize a book than write it. Still, that didn't make me like the book at all. It could be the reader. I have all 16 discs in my iPod. I'm listening to it again just to see if it's me, but I have to wait another month because it's just really annoying right now.
Nora Roberts gave this book a dazzling review, so I will try again, but it's just so whiny. It just keeps stating and re-stating the same bloody widowhood all the way to disc 4...get on with the story already! I enjoy love story, but I didn't find one so far. It's not a bad book, I just didn't like how it just keeps going and going and going while I am waiting for the story to get going.
