    It is a busy time of year for me, between holidays and baseball entering the playoffs, so it is amazing that I have been able to finish books over the last week at all And that also means an attempt at shorter reviews as this might be one of the few days in the next two weeks that I have time to devote to goodreads This is a perfect time of year for me to read a lot of shorter novels, so I decided to get a head start on a birth year reading challenge that I am doing next year by selecting The It is a busy time of year for me, between holidays and baseball entering the playoffs, so it is amazing that I have been able to finish books over the last week at all And that also means an attempt at shorter reviews as this might be one of the few days in the next two weeks that I have time to devote to goodreads This is a perfect time of year for me to read a lot of shorter novels, so I decided to get a head start on a birth year reading challenge that I am doing next year by selecting The Drowning Season by Alice Hoffman One of Hoffman s earlier works, The Drowning Season features three generations of a dysfunctional family living on an insular compound on Long Island, New York.Matriarch Esther the White has a cold heart with no room...

    I liked this book but didn t love it Full of selfish characters and found that I didn t like a single one of them But I thought the story was interesting enough I found the characters refused to feel and engage in each others lives and when the end came none of them had anything of consequence They mostly lived in the past and missed out on so much in the moment More of a 3.5 rating for me I was not disappointed in Hoffman s story just not her usual 4 5 star book I would recommend this bo I liked this book but didn t love it Full of selfish characters and found that I didn t like a single one of them But I thought the story was interesting enough I found the characters refused to feel and engage in each others lives and when the end cam...

    I am a huge fan of Alice Hoffman s novels, so I have already read most of them How delightful to discover her earlier works like The Drowning Season which I had previously missed If I understand correctly, this was first published in 1979, and came out two years after her first novel, Property Of Hoffman really gr...

    Having loved several of Alice Hoffman s books, I was taken by surprise by the lack of depth and good storytelling in this novel I thought the style was completely different from her other works, the characters were undeveloped and I was bored to death by the lot of them There were so many cliches, I cannot possibly list them all Selling a dwarf to a circus A preppy kid who wants to be a punk rocker and changes his name to Pagan Rath Pagan Really I can t begin to count how many times I had Having loved several of Alice Hoffman s books, I was taken by surprise by the lack of depth and good storytelling in this novel I thought the style was completely different from her other works, the characters were ...
