3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not My Type of Book 28 mars 2016
Par Fran - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I liked "Water For Elephants" so much that I wanted to read Sara Gruen's first published novel, and I must say that I could hardly put it down, not because the story was so compelling. I just kept reading hoping that this thirty-eight year old woman with a teenage daughter would wise up and quit doing such stupid things. Everything worked out in the end, but I felt dumb for having continued to read to the end of the book. I like horses, and was hoping that the story would be more about the horse and less about the owner. I would say that this is more of a teenage type romance novel than anything, but there are a couple of sexual encounters that could be left out to make this more suitable for young teenagers.

I loved Water for Elephants and At the Water's Edge by Sara Gruen.... both were 5 star page turners for me. Riding Lessons was hard to finish... the protagonist was narcissistic and unlikable, and the mostly predictable story d r a g g e d. I have no desire to read book 2.

I truly wanted to love this book. I love horses, and the author's previous wonderful work, Water for Elephants. The good stuff...the MC's love and passion for her horses, and descriptions of how that love looks and feels (and smells). The thing that killed this book is the completely unlikeable main character. She is entirely beyond empathy and sympathy. I read and skimmed and skipped just to find out what happened to the horse, and it was with relief that I was finally able to stop and put an end to the perpetual nonsense that the MC generated.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Annoying main character, waste of time 29 octobre 2012
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur

I thought "Water for Elephants" was a fine book so, even after reading the less than glowing reviews here, I decided to read "Riding Lessons." It was about horses and the Kindle Edition was only $2.99, so why not? I couldn't believe someone who wrote something as good as "Water for Elephants" could write something as--well, not good--as "Riding Lessons."

Unfortunately, I have to agree that the main character, Annemarie Zimmer, is so annoying that halfway through the book I was rather hoping she would fall on her head again and save everyone a lot of grief. In fact, there really wasn't really a likable character in the whole book, except perhaps veterinarian Dan, but he's kind of a wimp, and the Dressage trainer, who is a nice enough guy but why is he even in the story? I think he was supposed to provide some sexual tension (after all, he's French!), but it didn't really work. I actually felt some sympathy for Annemarie's husband, Roger, for enduring 20 years of marriage to this basket case.

Sara Gruen has proven that she can craft a very good book, and I'll be interested to see what else she publishes in the future, but I think I will pass on the next Annemarie Zimmer installment.

Annemarie’s life through the first three chapters. Then she is left to cope for the next eighteen chapters with the consequences, the fallout, the bad decisions, the non-decisions, the foibles and fumbles of her mid-thirties years. Ride it out, Annemarie, and learn about Pappa, about Mutti, about Eva, about Dan, and eventually about yourself. Things the reader knew by the fifth chapter, Annemarie learns by the end. We learn to watch for the same symptoms in our own life-illnesses. Her “litany of disasters is like an Ohrwurm,” a tune you hear over and over again in your ear, an undying repetition of the same tune, perhaps in a different key in later chapters, but the theme rides up over itself repeatedly into our consciousness. We cannot believe that the woman, otherwise sentient and thoughtful, can remember so vividly and still be so forgetful. It stretched the suspension of my unbelief from time to time, but Annemarie is my Schatzlein, too. My eye, along with Mutti’s, turns away, but my heart never gave up on her. She reminds me too strongly of people I love, and even of myself at times. Fine writing, evocative, penetrating, and finally true.
