Description

The book evolves to show this – how fear controls unless we’re willing to step out of the shadows of all the stories we tell ourselves and believe in.

Then finally — while recently browsing around for something new to read (even tho’ my stack of TO READ is like a mile high, I just have to be in the right frame of mind to read what’s there, dig? And I have to say, in all the thrillers I’ve read, I’ve never witnessed that before, so it was completely original. While there is medical treatment for infertility, it can cost in upwards of one hundred thousand dollars. I had a few misgivings about some of the character development: Julie, who's supposed to be 'weird' and virtually friendless, actually seems to have very little difficulty making friends; I wasn't sure I could believe that Luke would really have notched up four sexual relationships while confined to one room of his intensely overprotective mother's house; and I could never really get a clear idea of who David was supposed to be (at times he's portrayed like a monosyllabic, vulgar teenager, at others he seems the most mature of the whole group, and I couldn't reconcile the two sides of the character - they read like different people). So you could read the synopsis and get a gist of the whole story perhaps, but “Going Out” is so much more than that, and I really can’t get over enough how – with the state of the world at the moment and the anxiety surrounding escaping from the safety of your self-made cage – it’s such an important and brilliant read.

Purtroppo con "Il giro più pazzo del mondo" tutto si è perso in un mare di noia e sappiate che dire queste cose mi fa davvero male al cuore. Her mother’s last words to her, to find herself take on more weight as Jessie realizes she is not Jessie Sloane. On the whole, I think I'd only recommend it to fans of Scarlett Thomas who've already read her three latest books and need something to pass the time as they wait.

When reviewing my favorite books over the years, Mary Kubica and Karin Slaughter are the only two authors landing on my Top Books of the year for five consecutive years! Scarlett Thomas will always be one of my most favourite authors, it's taken me too long to read this book but I'm so glad I got around to it finally. I had sort of figured out where things were leading, but it didn't diminish how cheated I felt by the ending.

The story is one that is easy to read and follow along and I did find myself engaged rather quickly. These signing guides introduce signs for a variety of everyday activities, from getting up in the morning to going to the park. Or well, maybe because I had recently had a conversation with my book buddy about another book we just read which we thought would have a similarly ending? The blurb doesn't really accurately depict what the story is about, in the sense that it doesn't particularly focus on Luke's allergy to the sun and his road to desperately finding a cure. Be like Einstein and carry around this composition notebook -- you never know when genius will strike.
