Read full description of the books The Thin Pink Line:I am not even sure where to start in reviewing this book. To say it was bad would be inaccurate; however, painstakingly horrendous, might be more on target.
I hate to sound cold and unwilling to try, but that would be wrong. I wanted to like this book; in fact I thought I would so I already own the sequel and am now debating what to do about that.
However, on to this book. The main character Jane was a whiner, completely psychotic, and self-absorbed. No other character in the book is worth mentioning as they provided nothing for the actual story other than allowing the main character to wallow in self pity. The story itself went slow and seemed to be going no where; and I am all about a little cliff-hanger to ensure people read the sequel but stopping mid-story? Seriously; your reading, the main character seems to have finally decided to do the right thing and BAM, its done.
I am a fan of chick-lit, but this one missed the mark and I had to force myself to finish it.
Read information about the authorLauren grew up in Monroe, CT, where her father owned a drugstore at which her mother was the pharmacist. She is a graduate of the University of Connecticut at Storrs, where she majored in psychology. She also has what she calls her “half-Masters” in English from Western Connecticut State University (five courses down, another five to go…someday!).
Throughout college, she worked semester breaks as a doughnut salesperson, a job that she swears gave her white lung disease from all the powdered sugar she breathed.
Upon graduation, she began work at the venerable independent spacebookseller, now sadly defunct as such, Klein’s of Westport. There, she bought and sold for the better part of 11 years.
In November 1994, Lauren left the bookstore to finally take a chance on herself as a writer. Success did not happen over night. Between 1994 and May 2002 – when Red Dress Ink called with an offer to buy THE THIN PINK LINE – Lauren worked as a book reviewer, a freelance editor and writer, and a window washer, making her arguably the only woman in the world who has ever both hosted a book signing party and washed the windows of the late best-selling novelist Robert Ludlum.
Since Red Dress Ink’s call in 2002, Lauren has been kept very busy with writing more novels and checking her Amazon ranking on a daily basis. She still lives in Danbury, with her husband and daughter, where she has lived since 1991.
In addition to writing, Lauren’s daughter keeps her busy, accounting for the rest of her time.
Lauren’s favorite color is green.
Lauren’s favorite non-cat animals are penguins.
Lauren wants you to know that, however you are pronouncing her last name, you are probably pronouncing it wrong.
