I've only read one of her books and I wasn't crazy about it so I haven't read more. So many people I know like her work, though, so I guess I need to give her another try.
I love books like that!
I've never heard the term wealth porn but that type of book is hit or miss for me. It's hard to feel sorry for someone with that much money.
It sounds like this is a very well written thriller. I'll have to look for it.
This book is getting terrific buzz. I need to look for it.
I loved this book too. It really made me think about whether the ambition to be the best comes from the kids or the adults. To me, it feels like it stops being the kid's goal and becomes the parents' at some point and the kids are just trying to please them.
I guess you're too young to remember the Tate/LaBianca murders but I remember it very well. The country was gripped and terrified by the killings. Now, it seems we accept stuff like that as every day occurrences. Having said all that, I do find cults fascinating because I can't understand how people get drawn into them. I want to get my hands on this book.
It's so good to see you back! Listening to a book is different than reading it but it's still a wonderful experience. A friend recently loaned me an audio by her favorite narrator and, I'm sad to say, I don't like her narration. :( I recently listened to The Guest Room by Chris Bohjalian and loved it and think you might too.
I'm not sure I could stand to watch A Monster Calls - the book tore me to pieces.
