Description de l'ouvrage

1 mai 2012
Four women bound by chance take the trip of a lifetime in Karen McQuestion's fifth novel The Long Way Home.

For Wisconsinites Marnie, Laverne and Rita, life isn't working out so well. Each is biding time, waiting for something better, something to transport them out of what their lives have recently become. And then there's Jazzy: bubbly, positive, and happy even though she hears voices of the departed. Brought together by a chance meeting, the women decide to join Marnie on a road trip from Wisconsin to Las Vegas where she intends to reunite with Troy, the boy she raised as her own—and who she’s been separated from since her boyfriend’s death. Little do they know that as the road trip unfolds, so will their lives—in directions they never anticipated. Humorous, heartwarming, and bittersweet, the journey has something special in store for each woman.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Road Trip You Haven't Been On Before 2 mai 2012
Par TheLostBookReports - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Karen McQuestion has done it again! The Long Way Home is a truly new take on the ever so done road trip book. I am always hesitant to read a road trip plot based book, because I feel like for the most part I have read them all before, although this road trip is much needed for these ladies and there is some self discovery involved.. you will not find anything cheesy.
I loved each and every character. They each had qualities in them that were truly endearing and they also had qualities that made you groan and roll your eyes. However, they complimented each other well, there wasn't one person who you strongly disliked or who was going to cause a huge rift, that would create to awkward dramatic lull in the story. I must say though what is better than the story itself is McQuestion's talent to write realistically. Something I have always respected about her writing. There were moments when I would say out loud " oh my god, that is something I would Do!" or say, or think...

So, this why I cannot say it enough, go read The Long Way Home and all other books by Karen McQuestion.

PS
I like this book so much, it is hard for me to even properly tell you how awesome it is.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good read for the price 13 mai 2012

I'm not going to write some long drawn out critique of the book. I'm just going to get to the point and tell you what I thought of it. I will say that upon reading the description the story sounded a little implausible. I didn't get how the author was going to randomly throw together a mish-mosh of women on a life altering road trip. She did lay the groundwork well in the story and bring the women together in a realistic (or at least somewhat more realistic way). I did enjoy following along on there journey and all the developments throughout in each character and in their relationships. I do say that towards the end I feel like the author tried to wrap things up a little to quickly, like she didn't know what to do with the characters after their road trip but all in all a very enjoyable read, especially considering the price.

A LimerenceMag.com Review

The Long Way Home by Karen McQuestion features four women who go on a road trip from Wisconsin to Las Vegas. Add the elements that these women are barely more than strangers, range in age from 20's - 70's, have conflicting personalities, and are all dealing with the loss of a loved one, and you have just a little of what Karen McQuestion does to put an authentic twist on a "done before" road trip plot.

Jazzy is a ray of sunshine that Marnie, Laverne and Rita haven't seen in quite some time. When Marnie makes the decision to go to Las Vegas to reunite with the boy she helped raise, it's Jazzy's optimism that keeps the women moving forward both literally and figuratively. While I loved each of the characters for very different reasons, I must admit that Laverne is by far my favorite. I can picture the other three women rolling their eyes and becoming frustrated with this old woman but she does many things on the trip that I know I would do.

What I love about Karen's novels is that she develops the characters throughout the story and you never really have them figured out until the end. The amazing thing about The Long Way Home was that I didn't just love the four main characters, I also found myself mourning for those they lost. Each individual story was powerful and moving without being over the top.

I've only said this a handful of times in my years of reading, but I sincerely hope The Long Way Home goes from print to screen. There's nothing in this novel that wouldn't translate beautifully to a movie version, and I would be first in line to see it.

I rate The Long Way Home a perfect five stars and recommend it for anyone who enjoys an adventurous, heartwarming book with strong female leads.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 A strong start dwindles into sappy, predictable, convenient coincidences 24 août 2012
Par Marcy L. Thompson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
Lately, I seem to have been complaining about the writing in many of the books I read, so the first thing I should say here is that the writing is fluent and easy to read. The first part of the book is also quite good in terms of plot and character. The author did a good job setting up three of the storylines, but the second she introduced the psychic character, I started to worry about how it would all play out. I was right to worry.

The road trip, which is the center of this novel is one long string of idiocy, uncanny coincidences, women needing to be rescued by men after they do something foolish, and a plot that starts to seem completely driven by the psychic angle. In fact, although the blurb for the book makes you think it's either about the woman whose boyfriend dies, or maybe a group novel about the four women, it's really a novel about the psychic, and she simply isn't very interesting. Or believable. Or someone I cared enough to read a novel about.

I'm giving it two stars for the fluency of the writing and the strong start. However, I can't really recommend the book. I know people who really enjoyed it, so if the description sounds appealing, you might want to give it a try. Just know that it's fluff, and not terribly plausible fluff.

I LOVED THIS BOOK!

This was my first pre-ordered Kindle book. I wouldn't buy a book from any other author without reading the free preview first, but I knew KMcQ wouldn't let me down. I stayed awake all night to read this & it was well worth the sleepy daze I was in at work today. There are so many things I want to say about this book, but instead of wasting time reading reviews, you should just buy the book and enjoy it for yourself :)
