Bu kitabı BYU'nun Japon edebiyat rafından rastgele seçtim ve annesini öldüren genç bir çocuk hakkında bir YA kitabı bulmaktan mutluluk duydum. Um, baştan başlayayım. Korku kitabı olacağını düşündüm, ama daha çok Japonya'daki beş gencin iç hayatıyla ilgiliydi. Mücadele ettikleri konular şu anda Japonya'daki gerçek meselelerdir (ebeveyn istismarı, anne-baba yok, metro sapkınları, kalabalığa uyacak şekilde hareket ediyor, vb.). Tür için oldukça tipik olan bir sürü genç angst vardı ve bazı seks ve şiddet vardı, ancak yaşlı gençler için iyi seviyelerde idi.
I went back to read this title because I enjoyed Emily, Alone and The Good Wife so much. After reading several bad review books in a row, I was ready for some reliably solid fiction about everyday people dealing with their everyday joys and sorrows. O'Nan's books, with their rich characterizations and unflagging attention to the smallest detail of domestic life, are great comfort-food reads for me. Unfortunately, of the three O'Nan novels I have read, this one seemed the most slight. Perhaps because it only takes place over one day, has a huge cast of characters compared to the others, and the least amount of what I love about this author's writing, which is his absolute dedication to detail. This title was written before the other two, and while I can see traces of these elements here, it was disappointingly short and there wasn't nearly enough information given about every dusty corner of failing The Red Lobster and the preparation of all the "fancy" faux seafood:) In the end I liked it well enough, but it was far from my favorite.
This was the first book I read by Mary Higgins Clark. It was simply amazing! I couldn't put it down. Definitely a must-read.
