    My first taste of Alice Hoffman s writing and for me, this book at least was mediocre in both content and enjoyment factor At the start of the book I felt it was going really well and I was looking forward toof the same but the book kind of derails and gets overcrowded with too many characters that you don t really care about or connect with and a really weak plot On Hemlock Street, the houses are identical, the lawns tidy, and the families traditional A perfect slice of suburbia, this L My first taste of Alice Hoffman s writing and for me, this book at least was mediocre in both content and enjoyment factor At the start of the book I felt it was going really well and I was looking forward toof the same but the book kind of derails and gets overcrowded with too many characters that you don t really care about or connect with and a really weak plot On Hemlock Street, the houses are identical, the lawns tidy, and...

    This is another fantastic book from the author of Practical Magic, Blue Diary, and The Probable Future Nora Silk is not the typical woman of 1959 Long Island She s divorced, has two children, and never seems to care if they get dirty while they play She wears high heels and black stretch pants, and her nails are always done in bright colours Her eldest son, Billy, tends to pick stray thoughts out of the minds of people around him, and James, only months old, eats anything he can find i This is another fantastic book from the author of Practical Magic, Blue Diary, and The Probable Future Nora Silk is not the typical woman of 1959 Long Island She s divorced, has two child...

    My favorite Alice Hoffman, this book uses its setting and characters very effectively to show how the looks of the American dream can be deceiving When the main character moves to 1960s suburban American, her very presence makes life less perfect and yet somehowreal for the other people who live there Like most Hoffman, this includes elements of magical realism, including a ghost who haunts not her killer, but his brother, and a mother who uses old spells to keep her child save at school My favorite Alice Hoffman, this book uses its setting and characters very effectively to show how the looks of the American dream can be deceiving When the main character moves to 1960s suburban American, her very...

    I don t read novels like this one very often but I should probably do so Alice Hoffman was recommended to me and I happened upon this book at a local thrift store It was very enjoyable being a slice of life from 1959 to 1960, an era that I lived through as a young boy The novel reminded me a lot of Rabbit Run by John Updike or of Peyton Place, one of my favorites It definitely does not show the idyllic life of the 50s as portrayed in such TV shows as Leave It to Beaver or Father Knows Bes I don t read novels like this one very often but I should probably do so Alice Hoffman was recommended to me and I happened upon this book at a local thrift store It was very enjoyable being a slice of life from 1959 to 1960, an era that I lived through as a young boy The novel reminded me a lot of Rabbit Run by John Updike or of Peyton Place, one of my favorites It definitely does not show the idyllic life of the 50s as portrayed in such TV shows as Leave It to Beaver or Father Knows Best As I said, it takes place during a year period from 1959 to 1960 in a small bedroom community on Long Island, New York that was built six years previously on what was once a potato farm All of the houses are the same and it takes the residents some time to get used to the sameness but...
