Reconstructing Amelia was okay. I am always hesitant to read an adult book by a woman author. I know that is totally sexist, but as I have said before, so many adult women writers are way too whiney for me. I also found the characters to be pretty unsympathetic. Especially the mom, but not because of her mothering job, just because she was a whiney, whiney woman! I also thought that she was a total jerk to Firth, big time!
There have been many comparisons between Reconstructing Amelia and Gone Girl. I really disliked Gone Girl, big time, whereas, I didn't have as much of a distasteful hatred for this one. Still, is it worth it? It wasn't really worth my own time and I wish I hadn't spent my audible credit on it.
What's Going On Here?
There are SO MANY wonderful book review blogs out there and I can't compete with them, that is for sure. So this is not a book review blog. This is just a way for me to organize what I have read so that I can be better at matching the right book to the right person. The blog title comes from the brilliant mind of the most talented woman who ever lived, Ms. Judy Garland. The full quote is, "Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of someone else." That is what I hope to do here and in ever aspect of my life.
