John MandelSupport Your Library 3 comments. The Short Version: Leaving, following, disappearing, and obsessing are all elements of the relationships in this story of several lives intertwined over many years.
Eli admits that Lilia had some odd habits, but he never saw this disappearance coming at all. Pursued by a private detective they spend years on the move changing identities and never really forming long term relationships. While I thought the writing was beautiful at times, I never really felt any connection to the characters or story.
I found myself easily distracted from the book while reading it and it took me longer than most books of this length to read. Granted, part of the not feeling connected to the characters was that all of them were fairly disconnected from entanglements and relationships themselves, so to that extent the author did an excellent job of portraying them.
There are several minor mysteries that play out as the story progresses in terms of how all the characters became entangled and the truth about events in the past that both Lilia and Michaela are seeking.
Some of the answers turned out to be fairly predictable, and while the ending wraps things up, it left me with an unsettled feeling.

The book is full of wonderful moments in writing and fabulous images, but I just never felt connected or invested in the story. I definitely remained detached. I did enjoy the writing enough that I plan to read more by this author. Rating 3. Posted by suziqoregon on Oct 27, in photosWordless Wednesday 12 comments. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.

My Thoughts: Wow.

Just Wow. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the series back to back.

I had spread the reading of the books over several years. I found a few advantages to listening to the series as a re-read.
First of all, knowing what happens later makes many little small events and mentions early in the series that much more meaningful. Secondly, listening to the books back to back kept me in the mood and world of Harry and his friends.

Thirdly, Jim Dale is fabulous. Yes, his Hermione seemed just whiny and all wrong at the beginning of the series but I think that was toned down as the books progressed. This last book was difficult at times, though. The sad parts of the story almost seemed sadder when I heard them rather than read them. I was a bit weepy several times. I think I came out of this experience with a much greater appreciation and love for both Neville Longbottom and Luna Lovegood.
They both became favorite characters for me this time around. Then I take our ballot envelopes to drop off at the library the next day.

The other night we were both filling out our ballots and The Hubster got down to the measure that requested a four year renewal of the current library levy.
Heck YES! It saves me money!!!
