It was only appropriate that I finished “Girls Guide to Hunting and Fishing” on the day I actually go fishing. I got a little too emotional with this book than I thought I would. The ending left me wondering but not caring. I like to care about my book characters and I never got fully attached to this one. Only reason I picked up this book is because in one of the many articles written on chick-lit it said this was on the first.
I am here to tell you that “Girls Guide to Hunting and Fishing” is not a chick-lit book. Parts of it reminded me of Carrie’s character from Sex in the City but I think that was merely the fact she lived in NY during that part. Other than that, it was a fine book, I have nothing bad to say about it, just a good read. No more, no less. But whoever marketed as a chick-lit needs to stop.
Currently I am in the middle of “Worlds Collide” which at first constantly reminded me of the Plumb song, matching titles and all. Alison Strobel, as in Lee, is the author and this is her first novel. Im only half way through it but its safe to say that I recommend it. I discovered something with this book, I need to stop looking for something new in the CBA.
I stop enjoying the writing, voice, story, whatever which is really missing the whole point of a book. After my last try at Christian fiction, Im always very weary. But let me not step onto that soap box. Its been said you could hand this book to a non-Christian, but I think it be too much like handing them a track in form of a book. But, if they are warming up to Christianity, then go for it. Or simply looking for a good easy read, pick this book up too.
Totally off the subject but Im watching Late Night while writing this and that hp commercial keeps coming on. I always stop and watch it, its just too pure genius of a commerical not to. But I encourage you to read a book over watching late night tv any day.
