I have started a new book called The Lullaby of Polish Girls.
So far it is interesting, and a fairly quick read.
My downfall: I want to pronounce things correctly and in the beginning of the book it tells you how pronounce vowels and consonants so I continually look to make sure I am reading it correctly.
I'm however very happy this was done, because as I said I like to pronounce things correctly.
I'm three chapters in, so I will update you as I go :)
I am not receiving compensation for my review of this book. All opinions are my own and a final review of the book will be done when I am have read the book in it's entirety & will at that time receive no compensation either.a
I have finished the book and am pleased and somewhat displeased all at the same time.
Mostly pleased though - I would recommend reading it and deciding for yourself what you think.
Now onto some more specifics from ME:
The entire book was kind of open ended - allowing for the reader to use their "imagination" to fill in the details. This is GOOD since the subject IS dark and difficult.
It was well written and easy to read in the way that most of it flowed smoothly and made you want to continue to read and find out what will happen.
My favorite character was the uncle - he said some pretty cool stuff along with things that could be used in real life.
The mom and dad could fit many situations - and show the outcome of one path of decisions.
The sister is Really strong & I personally foresee her going far in life.
The main character Caleb was put into a difficult situation at an early age and throughout the book shows that he is a strong individual who I believe will make it.
I feel I have drawn conclusions to many of the questions, but I do not know how to do a spoiler block - so I will not go into those type of details.
I will however tell you I appreciate that I was given the opportunity to read this book, and that I have received no compensation from the author or the publisher for my comments on this book.
I enjoy reading and have been receiving books for review.
I hope you enjoy the tidbits I give you :)
There is nothing like knowing that you are almost done with a book, wanting to finish it because you have no idea how it's going to end and then knowing that it is soon going to be over.
That's where I'm at right now. Knowing that I only have about 40 pages left and biting my fingernails wondering what is going to happen..... Are they going to find him? Is everything going to turn out ok??? Is he going to remain dark haired or go back to being blond (You didn't think I was going to give specifics away did you?? I can't spoil it for you - It's due to be released in April!) What are mom? What about dad? Ahhh!!! His friend! The Girl!
Soon - I should know -
What do I think??? 4 stars :)
The Lullaby of Polish Girls by Dagmara Dominczyk
I have about 100 pages left of the book and have some mixed feeling about the book.
It is well written and for the most part fast paced (which is what I enjoy).
It is however on a dark subject with a sort of open ended writing style. As of this time there are many things that are left up to your imagination (or possibly even what you are willing or want to read into it).
Even with the subject matter being dark, I am looking forward to finishing the book to see how the lives of the characters play out.
I received this book from the publisher through Goodreads - all thoughts are my own and I am not being compensated except receiving the book at no cost to me.
