November 2010: Loving Frank

"Loving Frank" by Nancy Horan

Kasey: I enjoyed this book a lot more than I thought I would. I didn't agree with her choices, but I was interested in the story.

The characters were frustrating in their selfishness, but it was a good book overall.

Jen S.: I thought it was really interesting. Parts of it moved me to tears while others repelled me.

Amanda: Loved it but the ending was VERY shocking!

Stephanie: A nice work of historical fiction but lacked the passion of a convincing love story!

Aday: I think I might enjoy this story more as a movie. I didn't feel the fire that Frank and Mamah supposedly felt for each other, and I found them both to be extremely selfish and for the the most part, unlikeable characters. The writing lacked a certain spark and was a bit tedious at times, but the unexpected and heartbreaking ending made it well worth the effort.
