PDF DOWNLOAD The Last Mrs Parrish – surreycoltscricket.co.uk
This is the first book in a long time that I ve actually HATED There are a number of reasons why and some are hard to talk about without iving important things away I ll start with what I can safely say All spoilers have been hiddenFirstly this book is so slow and boring Especially in the first half where we stay inside the mind of the despicable con artist Amber Patterson as she plants herself into the life of Daphne Parrish and tries to steal her rich husband There are a 정숙한 남자 [A Man of Virtue] good two hundred pages of lunch dates designer dresses charity events and Amber hating every single perso FULL REVIEW POSTED35 StarsHide ya wife Hide ya kids And hide ya husband Cause Amber Patterson is on the prowl and liable to steal your entire life right out from under your nose And this time her enviouslare is set upon the beautiful and unsuspecting Daphne and her filthy rich disgustingly successful husband JacksonI ll be the first to admit that I love a ood cast of whack job characters but there s certain criteria I feel necessary for their levels of insanity to work The characters must feel fleshed out and human They should have layers and appear altered when viewed from different angles No one is all one thing They have to be convincing enough to make even the unbelievable seem believable No matter how absurd a theory may seem ood writing will make me a believer While the characters here certainly a theory may seem ood writing will make me a believer While the characters here certainly psychopathy I felt they lacked the depth and dimension needed for me to buy what they were selling although I m not saying the ride wasn t fun It just felt a bit put on and inauthentic at times This plot is divided into three parts with alternating focus which I thought worked well The first section felt slightly repetitive and was my least enjoyable but the rest of the book had me flipping eagerly through its pages anxiously awaiting reveals As for the twists they seemed edgy than surprising which isn t a bad thing The ending left me a little divided for reasons that are too spoilery to mention but since this is fiction I can stand to ive a high five to Secretul vieții și alte eseuri good ol book karma for doing her job with efficiency and vigor and a sweet twist of irony as My book ish Blog Insta What we veot here is a failure to communicate This uote from the 1967 film COOL HAND LUKE basically sums up how I m feeling after reading this book And I ve never even seen the movie The uote just came to me as a thing I know somehow deep from within the pop culture recesses of my mind There s a lot of useless information in thereI might also Down Lambeth Way go with in thealaxy of This Sucks Camel Dicks Stepbrothers 2008What I mean to say is I wish the publishers hadn t stuffed this novel into the psychological thriller Lebanese War genre just because that s where all the cool kids are and To be honest I almost feel I am beingenerous with two stars but then I did finish it so I wouldn t think it right to The Sacred Band give it an even lower rating There was something about The Last Mrs Parrish that made it a very easy read but that just wasn t enough My disappointment in the book really comes from my dislike for the characters or at the very least my apathy towards them Amber is despicable but her bad personality is written so overtly there is no mystery no build up of atmosphere toive the story some tension The author tells us all about Amber s sneakiness instead of just showing itwhich ruins the suspense in my opinion I could even The Shadowhunters Codex get on board when the protagonist is unlikable as long as there is some ambiguity yet there was none of that here Added to that Amber soal is really just to be rich which is too superficial and not interesting enough to make her a compelling character I did feel for Daphne however I also felt her character was fairly bland and her part in the story not excitingThe mystery itself was so predictable that I kept thinking Is this it The book is also just shy of 400 pages which is too long Dry Hard given the rather minimal amount of actual plot Though as I say the writing is easy and makes the book very readable the author does make use of many a clich and in several cases I thought do people really talkthink like this She loved the feel of this singularly superior vehicle is just one example of awkward unrealistic language which I found to be a little irritatingI know I am being hard on this book and maybe unfairly so since many readers loved it but after all Amber Patterson is fed up She’s tired of being a nobody a plain invisible woman who blends into the background She deserves a life of money and power like the one blond haired blue eyedoddess Daphne Parrish takes for rantedTo everyone in the exclusive town of Bishops Harbor Connecticut Daphne a socialite and philanthropist and her real estate mogul husband Jacks.
