[ Pdf Lazy Ways to Make a Living Ô star-trek-original-series PDF ] by Abigail Bosanko Í I am literally baffled by the reviews saying they ve read this book than once It s just trashy fiction, but it s not even good trashy fiction It started off well with moderately likeable characters, which unfortunately plateaued with little to no character progression For a character with so much going for her, and a phd Rose just seemed sort of pathetic A shot gun marriage in vegas to a colleague she isn t even that keen on and she ends up moving in with him A lot of the plot points didn t feel well crafted and thought out and the ending felt rushed 3 stars for the beginning and the concept, but the rest was a flop Loved this book Have You Ever Seen The Thomas Crown Affair Faye Dunaway Sugar Pink Lips, Fabulous Nails, Playing Black Utterly Destroys Steve Mc Queen Blue Eyes, Playing White It S A Dazzling Performance That Film Made Me Get Out The Chess Set I D Abandoned Three Years Earlier It Made Me Search Through East Anglia For A Blue Eyed Boy Suffering From Wealth Ennui I Never Found One, But My Chess And My Nails Were Outstanding For A Thirteen Year Old Lexicographer, Chess Master And Hedonist, Rose Is Down On Her Luck When She Meets Jamie, A Guy She Beat At Chess Twelve Years Previously Who Has Never Recovered From Losing The Game Or Forgotten The Sight Of Rose S Perfectly Manicured Nails Poised To Strike Over The Chess Board She S Destitute, He S Loaded And Terrified Of Losing Her Again They Strike A Bargain In Return For Chess He Will Keep Her What Is It Like Being A Kept Woman In The St Century Rose Is About To Find Out She S Also About To Learn That Disguising Your Moves In Chess Can Lead To Victory, But Doing The Same Thing In Love Leads To Disaster I bought this years ago second hand somewhere and have only just got around to reading it I was in a gap between demanding non fiction and needed something fun and frivolous. And so it is but it s also a sweet reworking of Jane Eyre, acknowledging how important a part of the canon Jane is for most female readers, and how Jane and Rochester form part of our internal template of what love should and shouldn t be I don t mean this to be a reductionist comment the choices Jane makes are complex and some of that is reflected here Anyway this was a fun update and I enjoyed it a lot. It may be because of the setting of this book that I connect with it so well I too live in Edinburgh and have worked in Livingston call centres , but absolutely love it I ve probably read it 5 or 6 times over the years, usually picking it up around Christmas time when it s cold and snowing outside. The plot follows a woman who believes herself to be an academic, over the space of a year in her life after a terribely embarrassing incident that involves a number of her ex s publically discussing her sexual abilities or lack there of , she chucks in her old life and moves to Edinburgh After spending several months working a multitude of odd jobs, barely making ends meet, she meets a handsome old friend by chance and everything changesThis book is exactly what it should be an easy read for a lazy day it s ver The first page of this book does little in the way of telling you what to expect but this was good honest chicklit at it s best Rose is a likeable character who becomes the kept woman of Jamie But as always in the best tradition of chick lit romance, the course of true love doesn t run smooth Rose finds herself encountering some very nasty bumps along the way Enjoyable entertaining. This book, huh I ve baffled between giving it a three or a two star rating, but I m nice, so I gave it a three The characters in this book were good They were very quite good The storyline was very good as well, and the chess references were placed so tactfully and intelligently and made sense there was a lot of moral discussions and classics discussions which I loved However, the ending, the fucking ending, Abigail, what in universe s name were you thinking The ending looked as if she wrote a wonderful, 4 star book, with an ending which suited the plot perfectly, and then she felt bad for the character for ending so harshly, so she wrote a second, shit part of the ending, which ruined the book for me completely Maybe some might enjoy it, but you re wrong, because that ending was vile it did not fit the characters, nor did it This was a lot of fun even if I d rather have read the story of the poker playing older sister. I don t usually like romance, as some of the tropes drive me up the wall such as the hero and heroine being able to sort out all their problems in five minutes if they talked honestly and sensibly But this is an intelligent example When I read that the heroine was analysing dipthongs in the word, Phwoarr , I knew that the book was going to be a cut above most of its peers It does play with and subvert some of the other romance tropes, which I enjoyed, though naturally I was far interested in the chap who was too PC for the heroine s liking He was lovely Anyway, this isn t my usual sort of book but it is very good.
In my opinion the best part of this novel is the front cover. and as they say you should never judge Maybe it just really wasn t for me, although having said that my taste in novels is varied I will start with what I liked, so 1 as I said the cover, 2 I found the parts set in Vegas very entertaining the authors description of the decadant fantacy land that is Las Vegas conveyed great imagery for the reader talking flower beds When the character was first introduced I liked Alistair, but then he became irritating and insufferable I felt this way about Catherine too The book was full of promise in the beginning, Rose, an acedemic linguistic doctor,specialising in dictionary definitions finds herself dumped and jobless and beholden to her This was a very strange book, not really my thing, although I enjoyed it to start with It s about Rose, an academic chess player, who leaves her job and returns to Edinburgh when she is embaressed by her students With no money, unable to live anywhere nice, she has to take a number of low paid jobs to survive She then bumps into Jamie, an old chess adversary, who is rich and successful He offers her the chance to be a kept woman, living in the lap of luxury and spending whatever she wants But Jamie has secrets and soon Rose s life becomes just as complicated, following a drunken splurge in Las Vegas. I started off liking this, despite the characters being a bit stereotypical, but after a while I began not to like Rose so much Daft is the word that comes to mind And the ending is, frankly, ridiculous I love fantasy novels, so
