The only reason I am giving the book three stars is because of the two main characters, Sam and Matt. Pearson did a wonderful job in giving Sam a unique personality, a woman who can take care of herself in any situation, and she became larger than life as the story progressed. I was wishing more of the book involved her. Matt alone probably would not have been as interesting, but the teaming up of Matt with Sam made for an exciting chase scene and ending to the book as the story of the many different characters was being woven together for the reader. Unfortunately, by end I must have missed some important clues along the way and by the very end, all I cared about was where the book would leave Sam and Matt in their lives.
I received this book from Net Galley in exchange for a review.
I liked and highly recommend The Grrl of Limberlost. I look forward to more from a promising Seattle author, Nine Volt Heart by Annie Pearson.
While I was not immediately pulled into the story, it was worth plunging forward. Ultimately, I enjoyed the book immensely. I found the beginning confusing, the plot a bit too convoluted, the scenarios implausible, and some of the characters almost caricatures – particularly the Eastern Europeans. However, Sam and her cadres of quirky relatives, friends, and neighbors are appealing and there were moments when I laughed out loud – a reaction generally reserved for Stephanie Plum books.
All in all I liked the book. I did receive a free galley from Netgalley.com in exchange for a review or I probably wouldn’t have read The Grrrl of Limberlost. But I’m glad I did. This is a strong 3.75 stars.
I had a hard time getting into this book. It is written from The point of view of three different people. However, once I figured out how everyone was connected, it was actually a pretty good read. The characters were well developed and the plot had a LOT of twists.
The quirky supporting characters gave me a few laughs and the love story wasn't all erotic. It was more like the characters were actually telling what they felt as opposed to what they did.
This book is definitely for a true mystery reader as things are not really spelled out right away, which definitely held my attention. I like putting the pieces together and not having everything spelled out for me.
