Ms. Lyndon does it again.,
This review is from: For Richer or Repo (Paperback)I really enjoyed her first offering, so I thought I'd give "For Richer or Repo" a try. Now, I'm not really much of a fan of chick lit (okay, for you purists that's "light women's fiction"), but "CurvyKathy31" was a hoot and I was curious if she could follow up with another winner.
Let's put this in perspective: If you're a reader who likes slowly developing, thought provoking literary works that leave you examining the various levels of metaphors, similes, character arc, social dynamic and other devices employed by the author, this book may not be your cup of tea. But if you enjoy a quick read with characters you can relate to, really clever dialogue, a plot that gives you whiplash as it turns on itself, a look inside each character's head as the point-of view shifts among them all, a diverting tale that starts out seeming predictable (poor-little-rich-girl) but surprises you, and a satisfying ending . . . well, this might be exactly your glass of diet Coke.
The electronic version is cheaper, but I'm one of those old-fashioned people who likes to hold a book in his hands, so I bought the paperback (great cover art!). Go to the Wings ePress web site and download the PDF if you like to save money.
In my book, Karyn Lyndon is now 2 for 2. I may be on my way to becoming an official fan (at least of THIS author's version) of chick lit.
I'm now wondering if she can go 3 for 3.
