In a rural city, we enter in that family from scratch, discovering step by step how each generation, unwillingly, mimics the previous one. It's also a story on ove, sex and how women, generation after generation, take hols on their lifes, their sexual relations and gain Freedom. A refreshing novel crossing the second part of the XXth century.

A little bit boring

This story of an US family after the second world war stretches along 5 décades with too little action, too little surprise. An awful stepmother which likes the money more than the humans, a son and a daughter working hard to survive but never getting over their past. Only at the end of the novel, when the mother reappears, we really enjoy the Whirlpool of the characters.

Outstanding shooting

Typical middle west american thriller, the story has well-planted characters: a judge seemingly feeling he is god on earth, the clever and honest ranger the outlier living with his falcons, the ambitious, stupid and stubborn sheriff…. A well-written story with few unexpected events.

Déjà vu!

A well-documented story of migrants in Mexico. Some previous books already describe the life in Mexico with the cartels having politicians and policemen on their payroll. This story of a mother with his son, crossing Mexico and eventually the US border is another way to understand this current life for those who happen to become a target.

Thriller without really any surprise. Montana landscape and some characters are interesting but you guess most of the thing in advance.

Good characters

A typical US family living in a fine neighbourhood welcomes a mother and her teen. Everybody seems fine, honest, willing to please others. But life starts to turn things over! You might know people like the Richardsons!

Delia Owens describes the marsh so well and this story of the marsh girl is so realistic you may think it's a true story. All characters are real, living people you may end breathing with them.

The story that made MI5 famous!

A real-like story of spying in UK during the second world war. The 3 main characters behave driven half by their emotions, half by their duty. We understand how it was living at that time.

A fantastic thriller with many unexpected development till the end. Typical gloomy swedish thriller atmosphere with lively characters, the feeling of diving into the trouble end of the 18th century. You go back and forth in the year 1793 to understand the behaviour of the roles. Had trouble to quit the reading till the end!

John Grisham is and has Always been a master in suspense and unexpected development. The 3 parts of this book are quite 3 different books with a rather astonishing chain of event. If the first part seems somehow a little bit too long, I've been startled by the second part, well documented, a bit of history in the story. You'll become attached to the characters and will smell and taste the cotton farming in mississippi!
