Fielding's intense style of storytelling has earned her comparisons to Alice Sebold and Patricia Highsmith. In this novel, she pens a sinister, emotionally complex tale about a woman ensnared by her crushing past--and the methods she'll use to find escape.
Yes, I like this book a lot...altho I do agree that it kind of dragged until Carter came into the picture....never knew what a
"spinner class" was until this book. Yes, I will read it all the way...gotta go get this one, too. I like the location of W. Palm Beach and that the lead character is an attorney, female at that, and STRONG.
I like the language that the author uses; it's simple yet still allows you to paint a picture in your head so that it is almost like watching a movie as you read. I like it and can't wait to read more.
I have been following the daily readings and so far I think it a good book. I plan on borrowing the book from my neighborhood library. I am very picky about my book selection but this is a very good book.
I started reading the weekly segments and liked this book so much I couldn't wait for Friday's last segment before I went to my library and checked it out. I just really liked the way it was written,the characters were so life-like and the plot kept me guessing til the very end,although I'm sure "Puppet" will end up back in Toronto where she belongs.I never read this author before but I will certainly read more of her books.
Ditto to most of your response - did keep me guessing to the very end - but don't know that I will seek out any of her other books - one aspect of the book at the end when the "truth" was finally all revealed but which left me hanging and wondering - what about the two children? - who and how will the "facts" be explained to them and what effect will it have on them and their lives? (maybe that's another book) - I know - I know - it's just a "fiction" book - but inquiring minds want to know -
