Firefly Lane

I real enjoyed this book. It was a book that made me want more, I was sad when it was over. This story is amazing and made me think back to when I met my best friend 29 years ago. It has been a trip and we are still friends and hopefully will be for many more years. Love my bff Janeen! I received a rebate coupon so I decided to give this book a try.

I was expecting a good read, but nothing exceptional. Wow, was I ever surprised. The characters are well developed, which drew me into the story. It felt like I knew them.

As I was progressing in the book, I had that mixed feeling where you have to keep reading to find out what comes next, yet you don't want to rush it because you don't want the book to end. Without giving any of the plot away, I cried.

Not something that happens often when I read.

This book is like life: So happy there is a second book: One of the best books I've read in a long time! A touching story of best friends through the years. When it comes to giving ratings to things, I try to go with the description associated with the stars instead of the stars themselves. In this case, I thought the two stars "it was okay" reflects how I felt about this book. I'm not saying there weren't things I didn't like about the book, and I sure as heck teared up for the last few chapters of this book.

The author is relatively new to me.

This book felt both too long and too short. It felt too long because the book spans at several decades, which is not bad, but it just felt like so much different stuff for such a short book. And the book felt short because I wanted so much more information. It felt sort of bare in terms of details. It really felt as though the author knew she had a set of plot points to hit over the several decades of the book, and that made the book feel at times a little disjointed, like the writing and details don't matter as much as the plot points.

There felt like a lot of unnecessary repetition and some telling me as a reader how to interpret things instead of describing things. For example, everyone describes Tully as being passionate and brassy, and we don't often get to see that much ourselves. Plus, I don't see how Tully is passionate, or what she's passionate about. Is she passionate about the news?

About being on television? It's never that clear. Though the book is about the relationship between the two, a lot of attention is focused on Kate. And she just seems like a downer during most of the time, until she gets married and has kids. Now, there are some themes that stray very dangerously and boringly into cliche territory, but I do like the idea of Tully and Kate having different life patterns, and each life has its ups and downs, it's benefits and downsides.

Tully doesn't have life that Kate has, and she feels like she's missing something some of the time, but by the end I sense that she's pretty okay with her life. After all, there's no one way to live. And I like that Kate pushes back against her mother and wants to be a stay-at-home mom. All the same, it feels like the emphasis is part of the agenda, versus Tully, who is practically soulless and only focused on business.

She absolutely believes in love--she's grown up surrounded by it--but she constantly questions Johnny's commitment to her. I always felt that was largely because she felt like a moon to Tully's bright and shining sun. The result is that she feels she's unlovable. Kate and Tully are each big personalities in their own way. Was it hard to create male characters who really understand them?

The challenge with regard to male characters was not so much creating men who understood Kate and Tully, it was rather to create love stories that equaled the power and emotional intensity of the friendship. After all, the men in the story were important--Johnny particularly--but it was really a story about the women. When Wally Lamb's She's Come Undone first came out, many readers were shocked that a man could write such an intimate portrait of a woman.

Do you think women are in fact the best writers of women's fiction? Would you ever consider writing a novel where men take center stage?

One of the great things about being a writer is that we get the chance to inhabit the minds and souls of a variety of individuals. We writers can "become" murderers, animals, psychopaths, vampires, lawyers, doctors, wizards, children. In short, our storytelling skills and character-building abilities are limited only by our own imaginations.

I didn't see the writing of that any different than anything else. Do you see yourself as a writer of romance or women's fiction? What do you see as the differences in these two genres--is one an evolution of the other, or is the label unimportant? I began as a romance author and moved into women's fiction about ten years ago.

While many definitions abound, mine is this: Women's fiction in general is not an evolution of romance; much of women's fiction is completely unrelated to any romantic elements. However, it is true that many current commercial women's fiction authors began in romance.

See a Problem?

Many women read fictional romance to escape the stress of everyday life and find inspiration in a happy ending. Is there a primary experience that you hope your readers will have after reading Firefly Lane?

I am a sucker for a happy ending myself. In fact, my husband and I often go round and round about movies in which I hate the ending and he loves it.

He always says I'm only comfortable with happy ever after, but that's not true. What I want is an emotionally satisfying, organic ending. I want to be totally engaged until the last page, and I want to believe every moment up until I close the book. Harry Potter comes to mind on this one. The point is, I want to be moved deeply. That's what I look for in other books and what I hope to deliver in my own. Just FYI, here are some of my favorite endings: Some are happy, some are sad, some are bittersweet.

All are memorable. If you could meet any writer, living or dead, who would it be, and what would you ask them? There are, of course, dozens of choices here, and I could certainly go through the classics and come up with many names and questions, but the truth is that I would love to sit down with Stephen King and listen to some rock and roll, and ask him how in the world he has stayed so good for so long.

Tente novamente mais tarde. Compra verificada. This novel was just all right. Having read the nightengale first, my expectations were probably higher than they should be. I found both Kate and Tully to be relatively one dimensional and thoroughly predictable.

It was hard to appreciate Tully for the flawed person she was, given how obviously self centered and emotionally needy she was. Trust me, I get that that was intentional given her background, but it didnt endear me to her anyway. It was also hard to feel sorry for Kate, the strong and often silent self identified martyr, who seemed to cling to a friendship she had long since outgrown.

The tone of the story- sisterhood, sacrifice, acceptance, loyalty- were prevalent, but wasted on characters who seemed to only stay "bffs" out of complacency and loneliness. That being said, it was ok if you're looking for something light and easy. If you're looking for anything deeper, probably look elsewhere.Find out more about OverDrive accounts.
