Invisible Life of Addie Larue
I am nearly through reading this book that has at times left me wishing it would move at a faster pace. As I have progressed, so it is coming together in an absorbing tale of a woman who sells her soul to avoid getting married in 1714. She is then destined to live until she surrenders her soul. It traces her life from France through Europe to the United States over three centuries and with that I will say no more. The book is descriptive in developing some intriguing characters and characteristics of spirituality that touches on some historic events, regretfully without enough detail for my liking. It is suspenseful and takes time to develop but becomes intriguing the further you read. I do recommend it to others. - Edgar W. Fentum
This book was entertaining, entwining, entrapping, and enthralling. I love the twists and turns that kept it attached to my hands and my head trapped inside.
I read this book for my book club on Facebook, Monthly Book Club :books:
A few pet peeves: Didn't love that the name of the book was incorporated, so much use of the green eyes/dark curls description for Luc, urban fantasy tropes - leather boots, "bookish"-nes
I have mixed feelings about this book. On the one hand, the writing was beautiful. I loved Addie as a character. But, and maybe this is just because I don't read much adult fiction, it felt like it had no plot. It was just winding bits of story put together. I also didn't particularly care about Henry. And I would have liked to see a lot more of Luc. I feel like this is more of a "it's not you, it's me" situation given how many other people are raving about this book, but it wasn't my cup of tea.
