This book is so hilariously dumb that I would recommend it to all of you just for the taste of the most perfect tastelessness, combined with lack of literary skills, shame and logic.
But only if you're sure you're gonna live forever. Otherwise you'll waste your precious hours in a painful way and will feel like a complete idiot afterwards. Oct 17, Liliana rated it did not like it. I could not empathise with the characters, they remained far away in their rich, intelligent, beautiful bubble. May 15, Anna Maria rated it it was amazing. I couldn't stop reading it. Well written and intriguing. I recommend it to all those who appreciate thrillers.
I kind of really hated this one. I went into it thinking it would be some interesting crime murder mystery thing grounded in reality and what I got was some off beat urban fantasy thing that was trying to pass itself off as being grounded in reality.
And like two chapters later, the victi I kind of really hated this one. And like two chapters later, the victim of said rape is walking around New York a city she does not live in by herself at dusk.
Does Faletti have any idea about women? Like at all? And then there's this Lysa character. She's a hermaphradite. She quite clearly says that they thought she was a boy but during puberty she developed breasts and went through a female puberty. This is literally spelt out. But the main guy who is also in love with her is shocked any time someone finds out that she has a dick and then continue to call her a girl.
He acts as though she was actually born male and is transgender even though that's not true and she literally tells him this! And it frustrates me to no end that this happens. She's a girl. She was born both male and female. She's a hermaphrodite. Anyway, there is so much wrong and frustrating about this book I am surprised I managed to finish it.
Also the villainous monologue at the end is so utterly ridiculous and the character does a full and there are no clues that it was actually them and god is it frustrating. End rant. This book sucks. I would definitely never read something by Faletti again.
Nov 18, Jeane rated it really liked it Shelves: italian , italy , usa , fiction , acquired I feel like I have a deja-vu everytime I start writing a review about a Giorgio Faletti book. Reviewing a book he wrote, always seems to start the same and so it also does now. Luckily it also seems to finish the same way. The beginning of the book made me confussed about what was happening, how it all belonged together. It did all come together in the end, after we have gotten to know the story of Jordan and his family, his job, To get on I feel like I have a deja-vu everytime I start writing a review about a Giorgio Faletti book.
To get on his Ducatti and drive. At the same time Maureen's life in Rome has been put on hold and she is passing time with the love of her life. Jordan's life has already been completely changed by one of the decisions he took in the past. Maureen's life will be changed in a way she probably could never have imagined, by an action from her past. Giorgio Faletti always wrote amazing stories, bringing different lives and stories together. To leave you at the end thinking, that was such a good book!
This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. The book for me was so engrossing, I almost didn't want to finish it. The ending made me shed a tear. Reading it made me want to read all the peanut comics. The ending was great and wasn't predictable which is what I like most in books. Looking forward to reading the author other books I have sitting on my shelf.
I liked this book! It had a good amount of suspense, turns and the "killer" was not someone I expected. The characters were good and while the premise of the story is a little far fetched, it was entertaining! This might be my least favorite Faletti so far. I am God dragged a little, but this one never really got me into it in the first place. Maybe the killer's POV is too important in Faletti's kind of storytelling, because I just did not connect with this book. The characters were so-so, the killer wasn't even remotely interesting though slightly unexpected and the hermaphrodite thing was just pointless.
Or for shock value, or something else I just do not comprehend. The premise sounded good too.. The premise sounded good too Sep 07, MauroMC rated it liked it. I read this book short after Io Uccido. Because I was positive surprised about the first book of an author I knew in different role and situation, I was expecting a little more.
Faletti in my opinion did not really improve his style that remains a little too ordinary, probably concentrating more on the protagonists, the surrounding and the plot. All together the book reminds me more of the translation of an american thriller, than not an italian one. A little too "easy". At the end of the day, a I read this book short after Io Uccido.
Il buio e l' attesa hanno lo stesso colore. La terra non ha memoria. Il vento si nutre di polvere e cespugli rotolati e dell'orgoglio di impronte cancellate e nuvole disperse. Eppure, da sempre, ricorda. Stava ritta sulla scogliera che precipitava a picco nel mare, una ventina di metri oltre il piccolo giardino delimitato da un muretto bianco. Il suo maglione rosso era una macchia sullo sfondo blu cobalto dell'Egeo. Marco conosceva troppo bene sua sorella per non capire quando era nervosa.
