Críticas

The author of this book is variously shown as Michael Baron or Lou Aronica. I don't know if they are the same person, or if they co-wrote the book. It doesn't much matter. I downloaded it on my Kindle free over a decade ago and finally got around to reading it when travelling.

I liked the book very much. The style is that of women's fiction but the main protagonist is a man - a likeable, believable person called Gerry who was happily married until his wife suddenly died, as we learn at the start of the book. His teenager daughter disappeared shortly before, and doesn't yet know... and Gerry is left with a two-month old baby, whom he has to look after.

There's a romantic thread, one filled with poignancy as Gerry struggles to come to terms with what has happened. He has to make some hard decisions and find some way of moving forward, still grieving, but finding ways to put aside his feelings of guilt and depression. I thought this very difficult situation was very well handled - and if the ending is a tad too neat and tidy, it didn't worry me at all.

Recommended.

This was very underwhelming. And frustrating.
I was better served by watching TED lectures.

It's like he tries to make conversation and keeps forgetting the audience is there.

FINAL VERDICT : SKIP

Recovery by Lou Aronica
This book follow Corinna and she's now the widow of a teen age son. It was not her son but her spouses and she tries to get him involved in things with her, but he has no part of it.
When he becomes sick in bed she does take care of it and he remembers and cherishes it. They set new memories together with his father and will make them yearly things they do.
Other works by the author are highlighted with summaries of each at the end, including about the author as well.
Enjoyed this read from the different standpoints of each involved.
Received this review copy from The Story Plant and this is my honest opinion.

Until again by Lou Aronica
This story follows the story Blue form the same author.
I had not read that one and this one was a bit different and a bit out there for me.
Like story of the parents and their daughter Becky as they help her to get over the pain of the divorce and the father leaves to live elsewhere.
She will still see it but it's not the same as they had worked on a fantasy realm type game together.
Didn't enjoy this one as much as the authors other works but it was ok to read.
Received this review copy from The Story Plant and this is my honest opinion.
