Présentation de l'éditeur

Readers who fell in love with Andi Cutrone in Elisa Lorello’s first novel, Faking It, can now join Andi on a new journey in which she faces a challenge unlike any she has ever known. Ordinary World begins six years after Lorello’s first installment left off: Andi is blissfully married, works as a recently tenured professor at Northampton University, and is a published author. Life is ideal—until her husband’s death in a senseless accident shatters Andi’s world, plunging her into a gulf of depression and grief. Her family and friends do what that they can to ease her anguish, but no one seems to have the right words to heal Andi’s pain. On the advice of a friend, she travels to Italy to escape and unexpectedly runs into the man who once helped her discover her authentic self. As their friendship is renewed, Andi finally begins to heal, daring to hope that someday she will be happy again. Both wrenching and uplifting, Ordinary World is a moving tale of love and loss, joy and sorrow, heartbreak and hope.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Mixed feelings 20 janvier 2010
Par Beth Kristen Nehme - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Spoilers Alert. This review discusses the ending of the book. NOTE - Elisa Lorello has very thoughtfully responded to my concerns listed below in the first comment attached to the review. Please be sure to read her comment.
I loved Faking It, but I have very mixed feelings about Ordinary World. Something that was just a niggling concern as I read Faking It really began to annoy me in Ordinary World. I don't think that Devin/David was given a fair shake. Why is it that we would perceive a female who was driven to prostitution by an emotionally abusive parent as a victim, and the `johns' as abusing the situation, but we are so ready to cast the roles in the other direction if it is a male prostitute/'escort'.
Andi is in a world of hurt after her husband dies. She is justifiably self-centered and needy. She runs into her old flame Devin/David who still loves her and he tries to help her through the pain. She justifies her lack of emotional commitment to the relationship by the fact that `he did it to her before' - painting him as the aggressor rather than the victim in her earlier relationship with him. She deifies her former husband as `perfect' and refuses to acknowledge flaws in their relationship. In the end, she agrees to a relationship with Devin/David only because she can never have Sam again. She never once acknowledges any quality in which Devin/David (who is a pretty spectacular guy) is better than her former husband, except that he is alive. Even the last sentence - [Life with Sam was fabulous because Sam is fabulous, Life with Dev is ordinary] expresses that concept.
I know someone who feels that way about their current marriage after their first spouse died. It's wrong and unfair. If you can't look at your new husband and say that he is different, but fabulous in his own way, you don't deserve him, and you're not doing him any favors by being with him.
I so wish I were the editor of this. I would send this wonderful compelling book back and say - you didn't finish it. She's not there yet. Maybe there will be another to finish the story.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Way Too Much Grief 24 janvier 2010
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Like Andi, my husband was killed suddenly in a senseless accident, leaving me a young widow to cope alone. At the 70% point of this book, Andi has wallowed in her grief for two long years and I have suffered every minute with her. Not in a good way. Frankly, by about the 40-45% point in the book, my sympathy for and empathy with her was completely exhausted. Sadly, there is nothing in this character to like. She uses her friends, finally 'understands' but is still a jerk with her mother and her self-absorption knows no bounds. Grief is no excuse for two years of bad behavior. I rarely give up on a book  of the way through, but I just plain do not care what happens to Andi. I have begun another book and likely will not be able to force myself to finish this one. Ever.

If you enjoy mucking about in vicarious grief, this is the right book. If you'd like to read something with even a glimmer of strength and self-reliance, look elsewhere.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Elisa Lorello gets it. 27 décembre 2009
Par Larry H. Leitner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I just finished Ordinary World. I was a fan of Faking it so I was looking forward to the sequel. Nothing could have prepared me for the powerful emotions I got from this book. I lost my wife last spring after a 6 month illness and I lived so many of the thoughts and emotions Andi was dealing with and I certainly could identify with what she was feeling. Anyone who has ever lost a loved one should read this book and so should anyone else. Ms Lorello really gets it. She has captured the experience of loss like no other author I have read.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Its ordinary... 6 mars 2010
Par K. Douglass - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Let me start by saying that I really enjoyed Faking It. This is usually not my fav genre of book so that could be why Ordinary World was tough for me to sit through.

I found that the series of events were just to unbelievable. The way Lorello went from point A to point Z was a little disappointing. Throughout Faking It, I foung myself rooting for Andi. This book just made me lose all respect for her character. I get the pain and heartache, but watching her become a selfish, self righteous women with bi-polar tendencies was mildly disheartening.

I REALLY wanted to like this book. However, after all the wallowing in self-pity coupled with the rushed conclusion, I was left feeling unsatisfied.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Worst Ending Ever! 23 février 2010
Par daisie1238 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I loved "Faking It," and I was even okay with Andi marrying Sam in the end. "Ordinary World" was a journey of mourning for Andi after Sam's passing, and I understand the enormous swing of emotions that one goes through when mourning. I just had a difficult time trying to keep up with those emotions and by the end of it (finding it difficult to even try to sympathize with her), was hoping that she would find her "Ordinary World" and end up with Dev/David. I was elated to find her meeting up with David/Devin again in Italy and was hoping that they would live happily ever after. I'm a sucker for happy endings and maybe that scenario would have been too neatly packaged, I don't know. All I know was the last 4 lines of the book ruined it all for me. I don't know if the kindle version left off a couple pages or if that truly was the ending. I just felt like I was left hanging and unsatisfied after finishing the book.
