    No plot tension, no characterization, no compelling reason to keep reading We get all of the high points of Jean Leon s life, but few setbacks or problems that give him opportunity for growth He remains at the end a self cent...

    I never knew biographical fiction was a subgenre Historical fiction I have no problem with, but this narrower focus feels pointless and even kind of deceptive Stars in His Eyes was my First Reads choice for June since it was labeled as a memoir and the fictional aspect wasn t immediately obvious from the website description.That said, while I won t be returning to this genre anytime soon, I enjoyed the narrative The author s writing is interesting He made a self absorbed, pretentious jerk of a protagonist almost compelling despite the glaring negative qualities present in his personality The historical setting of Hollywood with characters such as Frank Sinatra, Jimmy Dean, Ronald Reagan, JFK, Marilyn Monroe, and others created a captivating story and environment My biggest complaint is probably the time jumps Many eve...

    In hoeverre kan het lot je zo goedgezind zijn dat je leven, ondanks de schijnbare en vooral zelfverklaarde tegenslagen, leest als een sprookje Het is deze vraag die door mijn hoofd blijft rondwaren na het lezen van De kracht van een lotsbestemming, de zesde roman van de Catalaanse auteur Mart Gironell, die onlangs in het Nederlands is verschenen Er staat bewust Catalaans en niet Spaans, omdat de auteur oorspronkelijk in de regionale, Noord Spaanse ...

    Novela apresurada, sin ritmo, en la que un muchacho que huye de la Espa a de la posguerra recaba en Nueva York e inicia una carrera espectacular, llegando a ser un personaje sumamente influyente en el mundo de las celebrities de mediados del siglo XX.Intentando remarcar la grandiosa relaci n del protagonista con los personajes m s famosos del momento, la novela se convierte en un excesivo cat logo de actores, cantantes y pol ticos que pasan por el restaurante y la vida de Jean Le ...
