1.0 out of 5 stars One Hot Mess 28 Jan. 2012
By booklover828 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a hot mess of a book. Interchanging confusing stories, flashbacks that don't connect, long incoherent ruminations inside the character's heads, long long run-on-forever paragraphs that almost put me in a stupor, excessive use of the "f" bomb, and a neat and tidy summation of how all of the characters more or less come out of their earlier years a prospering success. Bad.

I think there could be a good story here, but I found myself somewhat daunted by confusing "stream of consciousness" passages from various viewpoints. A whole lot of "telling" and not enough "showing." The author could have greatly benefited from a good editor.

While searching for something different and interesting to read, I took a chance on ordering this for my Kindle. Good thing it was free at the time. I would be upset if I paid good money for this.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Orange Blossom Express 4 Jun. 2012

A nostalgic look back at how things used to be - maybe not always for the best. Glad that things have changed in many ways.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good read through and through 8 Jun. 2009
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
No one has ever said that the 1960s were a quiet, serene time in America. "The Orange Blossom Express" is a blend of memoir and fiction from Marlena Evangeline, as she reflects on her own summer in the Age of Aquarius through the fictional story of two girls becoming women during the tail end of one of the most turbulent times in American history. An exciting read about trying to get by in hippie culture (which isn't as innocent as it seems), "The Orange Blossom Express" is a good read through and through.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fellow Californian 20 Mar. 2009
By B. Schendel - Published on Amazon.com
I loved this book. Marlena captured the 50's and 60's beautifully. I could smell the orange blossoms and feel the heat and dust of Devore. My visual mind was working over time. A captivating story and a really good read.
