¿No había otro puto ejemplo de mierda para que la protagonista simpatizase con él? I've finished this book a week ago and already I can only remember the main plot. As above with not really staying long enough on one issue to really get a feel for it, it was the same with the relationships between Zoe and The Brothers capital letters, I feel, are necessary. But either way, I don't care enough about the characters to read a sequel. She never said he made her feel good about herself. Before the end of detention, Simon's dead. Hidden away in her backyard shed in the middle of the night with a jam sandwich in one hand and a pen in the other, Zoe gives a voice to her heart and her fears after months of silence.
In a neighboring county, 17-year-old Nolan Chandler is determined to find out what really happened to his brother, who disappeared the day after Nolan had an eerie premonition. She writes to a man of death row, she does not give h Okay, ketchup clouds. I admire how this book isn't overly romantic at all. I felt condescended to and, quite honestly, deceived. As you might have spotted and recoiled from in the synopsis, Ketchup Clouds does focus and hinge upon a Romantic Triangle so readers fed up of that trope should probably steer clear, but Pitcher does her tale justice and I enjoyed the listen I think just as much this time around as I did before. It was dealing with sexual assault and coercion as is usually forgiven between teenagers drunken; I didn't mean to; blame X; come on, you know you want to kiss me in the locker room even though we have nothing in common and I've proven myself a jackass, because I'm more popular than you.
Autorka na svém příběhu ukázala, že si všichni s sebou životem taháme nějakou vinu, ať už je větší nebo menší. I got away with it. Maybe she changed name because Zoe always writes 'yours truly' but it doesn't meet the concept of the book. Cítí, že ji jen Stuart dokáže pochopit a že jen jemu může popravdě vypovědět, co všechno se stalo a co všechno ji tíží na srdci. The characters in Ketchup Clouds were very real to me and I think narrator Julie Maisey did an excellent job of making each person both believable and easily identifiable. The anonymous nature makes the whole thing so fucking pointless.
S některými postavami soucítíte více, s jinými méně a i když už od samotného začátku víte, jak kniha skončí, stejně až do samotného konce doufáte, že bude konečné rozuzlení krapet jiné. Everything about the first book had been so easy, from getting the idea quite spontaneously one night in Ecuador, to writing the whole thing in a very relaxed way whilst travelling round the world. Doufá, že prostřednictvím dopisů dokáže ulehčit své duši a konečně dojít smíření… Annabel Pitcher se Patnáctiletá Zoe tráví chladné noci jiným způsobem, než aby klidně spala v posteli v pokoji — píše tajně v kůlně na zahradě dopisy Stuartu Harrisovi, usvědčenému vrahovi, který v Texasu čeká v cele na smrt. Only 20-something hipsters talk the way they do. There is a sadness to this excellent book, because you understand that Zoe her pen name has had to face up to life sooner than is good.
I also enjoyed it when Zoe clearly directed her thoughts and feelings towards the reader of her letters - with a somewhat childish naiveté but also with great sincerity. Svoj príbeh, ktorý nepovedala nikomu. She's selfish and such a bitch! Instead, the letter is from another character altogether, which makes no sense in the framework of the novel and I felt was totally unnecessary - the writer holding my hand, dragging me to what she wanted to make sure I understood, in case she hadn't made her point clearly enough. Supporting characters are strong too. These two books, to me, are very similar. The whole mystery surrounding who she killed and why she killed was just intense. When she described the book, I was immediately interested.
Hidden away in her backyard shed in the middle of the night with a jam sandwich in one hand and a pen in the other, Zoe gives a voice to her heart and her fears after months of silence. . Well, they come from the way Zoe's sister Dot plays with her tomato ketchup and mash potatoes. Zoe's storytelling isn't that vivid enough to easily find out the things that happened. She is a great sister but that's all. Pitcher certainly has a talent for getting into the mind of her characters - not only Zoe, but the rest of the characters also felt very realistic. Nate, the criminal, is already on probation for dealing.
Secrets, romance, murder and lies: Zoe shares a terrible secret in a letter to a stranger on death row in this second novel from the author of the bestselling debut, My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece. It's a moving and ultimately highly compassionate tale. Anyway, these two guys are very interesting and not perfect , for they are such total opposites. Generally Ketchup Clouds is well paced, but a few times Zoe's letters end at cliff hanger moments because she is 'too tired to keep writing now' and I could have done without such an obvious literary device. Mixed feelings: The inmate on death row is kinda important, but we miss his input since he's doesn't reply. The novel was shortlisted for numerous awards and was praised by other authors, by the press and by book bloggers.
I think this was the perfect book for me to read at the right time, which probably supports the 4-star rating. Although there is a very heavy subject behind this story, Pitcher balanced things perfectly. They're the same in every city in every country in every continent of the world. Byla tam i vážná stránka, což se mi líbilo. Because I loved reading, studied English at Oxford and taught the subject at a school, I think it made sense to people that I would try to write something of my own one day. Do you think Ketchup Clouds needs a follow-up book? She must figure out a way to tell Max that she wants to be with Aaron instead of him.
