    Last night, I started and stopped reading this what could be the worst written book I have ever tried to read Weinreb purports to have been a journalist, have a degree in literature from Yale, and a master s from Oxford NO WAY The writing was so awkward the way translated language can be, with words seeming to be out of order I found myself re reading passages to try to make sense of them Here are some examples I found when thumbing through the book some after I abandoned it I booked the trip to Bermuda so that we would have the chance to talk finally alone Though the laugh, the day, it exhausted her p.21 Nora had been keeping up appearances for two months since the arrest when the exhaustion of the effort and of all she was now managing alone swelled to the feeling that a blood vessel would burst if she didn t rest p.65 her boys faces looked like adorable painted puppets, their cheeks and the tips of their noses blooded circles on complexions frozen otherwise white and stiff p 99 la senora appeared 10 times on one page If I had bought this book, I would have returned it and asked for my money back This once immensely privileged woman must have known someone to have ever gotten her book published And she got lots of press due to her personal story hedge fund husband arrested for wire fraud GRRRR

    Maybe I m just not there yet in life Maybe More likely this book just sucked This is your basic chick lit wealthy family, horses, private schools, SUVs.and then the husband goes to PRISON And the family has to try and make it Luckily, the protagonist could not only give Betty Crocker Paula Dean Martha Stewart a run for their collective money, but apparently could trounce them all single handed She supports her family by baking, somehow keeping the hispanic maid who we know from the third page is like family, speaks English and is treated like a real human being by our heroine, unlike the other stuck up skinny bitches in the neighborhood.Okay, so maybe it was silly of me to even pick up this book in the first place, but in my defense, the cover is SUPER CUTE Who doesn t like jam.My main beef is the unrealistic characterization prevalent throughout the text Seven year olds do not talk like that Twelve year olds do not talk like that People with maids do not talk to their maids like that I don t care where you are from If you are that kind of person, you just don t have a maid.

    I started out enjoying this book because it thinly veils the places it is actually speaking about The private school Must be Rippowam Cisqua based on the location description Trick or treating on Halloween in Katonah legend around these parts So initially it was a romp.But as I continued to read, it was not enough for it to be a romp to keep my attention The writing is poor The characters are like charicatures They are poorly developed and one dimensional In the end I realized I was reading drivel and just skimmed over the pages.Disappointing

    I loved this story Starts out feeling like it might be just another chick lit story of a wealthy, privileged woman betrayed by a worthless husband But the story the writing go so much further The heroine Nora and her husband Evan go through a lot of changes It does a beautiful job of showing the evolution of a person and a relationship during a difficult time The descriptions of the baking, gardening are so vivid too

    This book was so inspirational to me I love that Nora created a new life for herself and her children after dealing with a tragedy This book really shows you how life s obstacles can create a better and stronger self I hope to one day be able to live my dream like Nora did.

    I couldn t finish it.I mean, I was interested by the story a woman has to care for her family and find herself after her husband is jailed for white collar crime and their assets are seized , so I thought I would push through it I m actually generally unsympathetic toward rich people who think they have money problems, but I am naturally very sympathetic toward women who have been screwed over by their husbands, so with some good character development I could have been really won over plus she bakes and I like books about baking.But The writing Was just so bad So bad I m not sure how to describe the stilted telling not showing run on sentence heaven that is Weinreb a former journalist s prose So here s an excerpt Nora had been keeping up appearances for two months since the arrest when the exhaustion of the effort and of all she was now managing alone swelled to the feeling that a blood vessel would burst if she didn t rest A stomach virus had struck the boys the previous night and she had spent the moonlit hours shuffling one and then the other to the bathroom, changing sheets and pajamas, showering soiled bodies, wondering as she armloaded laundry into a brief, dark calm at how life had not turned into a dead end, but into a desperate, endless, solitary swim through treacle She had left when Beatriz arrived only because she needed respite from the stench of her life even than rest Was that middle sentence even a sentence Ok, not every single paragraph in the book is that bad but there are enough You get the gist I actually made it almost halfway through because I wanted so badly to see Nora grow but she wasn t even worth it She s uninteresting Weinreb goes on and on about how strong she is, how much stronger than all the other shallow rich women she hangs out with, blah blah blah, but I don t buy it for a second She whines and whines some and relies on others instead of taking any action on her own, and I was done.Plus, there wasn t enough baking.

    When I started reading THE SUMMER KITCHEN, Karen Weinreb s debut novel, I immediately felt I was going to like Nora She seemed different than the other Bedford wives in that she didn t seem to be as snobby, for lack of a better word And though I kept that feeling for her throughout the book, I can t say that I related to her at all Obviously, I don t live in that kind of lifestyle and I don t know any women who do, for that matter, so it was hard to put myself in her shoes I liked the premise of the story about a woman trying to put her life back together after her husband s arrest, and the inner strength she discovers, however, I was expecting something with a little depth The story just didn t move me like I thought it would I don t want to say too much for those who have yet to read it, but for me, the plot fell a little flat I found parts of the story just weren t realistic for me For instance, after her husband is arrested, Nora suffers another devastating loss and I was disappointed that this event was hardly addressed at all I felt such an incident should ve had of an impact on Nora, which might have given me a emotional connection to her However, there was focus on her sexual fantasies with one of the other husbands, than of the losses she endured I also felt the story was forced at times like the author was trying to make certain points before the end of the book Speaking of the ending, although it was satisfying for the most part, it all just seemed a bit unbelievable to me.

    La bottega del titolo compare a romanzo praticamente finito prima, un interminabile racconto delle sfortune economiche di Nora, madre e moglie che non ha mai avuto un pensiero per i soldi che le escono fin dalle orecchie.Nora non ha una casa, ha una villa, pure antica Non ha una cucina, ha una stanza separata dal resto della casa, ovviamente attrezzatissima Stranamente non ha una cuoca, fa tutto da sola.Nora non ha amiche, solo conoscenti, madri e mogli come lei, ricche sfondate come lei, che ovviamente non si vedono nel momento del bisogno.Nora ha tre figli bellissimi e perfetti, cresciuti da una tata dal passato torbido cosa c di pi naturale per una madre che affidare le proprie creature a un estranea senza referenze Nora si distingue dalle non amiche perch legge, ma lo fa di nascosto perch non trendy.Nora diventa povera perch il marito ha scherzato col fuoco e ta daaa Si rimbocca le maniche e diventa una pasticcera di successo.Morale i soldi non fanno la felicit , si sta tanto bene alla scuola pubblica, i quartieri delle persone non ricche sono cos carini, mio marito in prigione ma lo lovvo ancora, ognuno di noi la Forza nascosta in s ha.Grazie per la lezione se avessi voluto un manuale di self help me lo sarei cercata Volevo un romanzo, ho trovato un grande boh.

    Ultimately, this book has a good hearted, if preachy message, but wading through the mediocre writing and often awkward wording to arrive at it was painful at times I figure I can t really criticize a book if I don t finish it, and it was our book club selection, otherwise I never would have finished it If you like redemption books about shallow, vapid people, some of whom wake up and become real, you ll like this book Otherwise, there are many, many stellar and meaningful books you might choose instead.

    It was so hard for me to feel sorry for Nora, whose husband was arrested by the Feds, and who was left wringing her hands about concerns that only the insanely rich have I don t know why I even finished this book, written in from one dimensional, unreal, yet so predictable point of view.
