Kathy Agree completely. I did Looking for someone who rocks please read it but I completely lost track of timing, characters, etc. I couldn't begin to outline the plot for anyone. Loved the …more Agree completely.
Loved the setting and some of those details but the plot line was waaay too tortured for me. I am a bit confused about the timing in this plese. At the beginning, it says Lulu is in White woman looking for asian man. 9th decade in Init says that Charlie is 3 years old, which means he was born in In Charlie and Lulu have relations.

Everyone just sucks. Anytime a woman speaks, she dribbles on by tacking Naughty wives want real sex Albany "honey," "sweety," "sweetness," or adding on a needless "-y" to things. Only really old women or horribly vapid women do this incessantly. It's not that Looking for someone who rocks please read opposed to rape being something that happens in a novel, but it needs to serve a purpose.
In this book, the one main one did not drive the plot forward, didn't someoe a character, but just needlessly happened.

This is the worst part. Thanks for that much description of vomit and feces, bruh. This book isn't a page-turner.
It's not full of wisdom, self-knowing humor, or anything of that sort. It's just a horrible book written by a piggish man.

May 19, Lauren rated it it was ok Shelves: I'm not sure why this book is getting such rave reviews or why it's being described as "romantic". It had a lot of promise in the beginning, but the story is dull.

The characters are one dimensional and the supposed romances in the story are anything but. Too much time was taken in detailing things that didn't matter, like the exact texture, color, and presentation of calamari or the various layouts of islands that have no play in the story.
I didn't finish this book, I'm not sure why this book is getting such rave reviews or why it's Widen WV married but looking described as "romantic". I didn't finish this Looking for someone who rocks please read, as I got tired of waiting for something interesting to happen or for two of the characters to have a deep, meaningful relationship of some kind.
This is just a boring, incomplete story about a bunch of screwed up, undeveloped characters. View all 8 comments. Jun Looking for someone who rocks please read, Wendy Clare rated it it was ok.

You can completely tell this book has been written by a man. All the female characters are these sex-crazed, aggressive, type-As, and the men just sit back and let all the bad stuff happen to them all the ladies' faults of course. Ugh, couldn't stand this book. View all 4 comments.

I feel like I'm dissing an author's entire raison d' etre by giving the nod to a frilly beach read over Nichols' book as Nichols' back catalogue is comprised of several maritime historical Nude teens cool body rubs Lakewood Colorado booksbut his risky conceit of telling the story backwards made this book, at times, a real chore to get through.
It started with a promising premise, though. Intwo octogenarians on the Spanish island of Mallorca, Lulu an owner Looking for someone who rocks please read a private resort called Las Roques and Gerald a writer of a a semi-celebrated historical travelogue depicting the Mediterranean voyage of Odysseus confront each other about their past along the cliffs outside the resort.
We learn in backwards stair-step fashion about the two, that they were briefly married to each other way Only for great women inbut some tragic events during their honeymoon drove them away from each other for almost sixty years, both living somone the island but having zero contact with each other.
What bad thing happened back in '48 to estrange themselves from each other for six decades? Nichols' unfolds the answers Lookingg, in an ultimately satisfying but slooooooow fashion.
By the time you get some answers you almost don't care what happened to them. Lulu's and Gerald's back stories on the island with their divergent paths and their children--Lulu's Looking for someone who rocks please read Luc, Gerald's daughter Aegina having their own back stories and coteries made this so confusing I kept getting frustrated.
Lots of pervy behavior from the invited guests to Las Roques and from, ahem, matron of honor Lulu herself kept distracting from the core conflict promisingly dangled at the outset. For what it's worth, I did like the ending, though getting to the end was not easy. I think as GR friend Larry Sexy nude native indian girls from Darlington pointed out this novel would probably make a really good roc,s, but it would require a deft hand Looking for someone who rocks please read sort through the confusing character cavalcade.
It's definitely not your typical 'beach read'. View all 7 comments.
