HASH(0x9bdf47f8) su 5 stelle Wide-eyed Look at 1950s Miami 20 dicembre 2010
Di Jennifer Baum - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
"Lies of Mercy, Lies of Grace" is a cozy stroll through 1950s Miami in the company of observant narrator, young Mercy Grace Malone, both naive when the action takes place and also thoughtful and eloquent as the adult reminiscing about her family and friends. This book was enjoyable on so many's one I could read a chapter at a time, always coming away with a complete experience to consider. It's also one that is easy to read straight through, though, since the narrative thread is consistent throughout the story and builds to a poignant and satisfying ending. Basically, it's a story I'll enjoy rereading :) The author's strengths lie in character development and voice. By the end, I felt that I truly knew the main character's family and friends, and I enjoyed being her confidante. I'd say read it if you're looking for a thoughtful and funny read that brings up complicated topics but strips them down to their essence, a la The Emperor's New Clothes.

HASH(0x9bdf484c) su 5 stelle Fifties family life with laughter 25 febbraio 2011
Di Gold Star - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
Set in mid-century Miami, Florida, the Malone family's Irish heritage merges with its entrenched, maternal Pennsylvania Dutch roots as Mercy, the oldest daughter, shares daily life.

Lies of Mercy, Lies of Grace, has a definite comic bent. I found myself laughing out loud when Mercy and her brother Joe accompany their father on a used-car buying adventure at Easy Eddie's in South Miami. More laughs are to be had as the family visits the Biscayne Bay Home Show with celebrity-spotting and endearing Bob Rose, who has a Mr. Magoo-like inner-vision impairment.

Underlying all the humor is an examination of family dynamics and a nostalgic look at life in the fifties. Carol-Jo Pettit's book is both entertaining and thought provoking.

HASH(0x9c59f3a8) su 5 stelle Charming, funny and very entertaining! 11 dicembre 2010
Di Wendy L. Williams - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
This book was a treat to read, like indulging in a satisfyingly sweet dessert after a meal. Lies of Mercy, Lies of Grace gives us an uplifting and often hilarious glimpse into the everyday life of a girl raised in an Irish/Pennsylvania-Dutch household in Miami. We see how she learns from and relates to her siblings, her parents, and her interesting neighbors in each sweet and funny chapter. Carol Jo Pettit's writing is both warm and entertaining, much like Fannie Flagg's, one of my favorite authors. I loved this book!

HASH(0x9bfa1abc) su 5 stelle Funny and heart-touching 22 aprile 2011
Di EDL - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
Carol Jo Pettit's Lies of Mercy - Lies of Grace, Tales of a Pennsylvania Dutch Girl in Miami, will take you on a time-machine tour of 1950's life in South Florida. It's also laugh-out-loud funny on some pages and heart-touching on others, as young Mercedes Grace Malone, " (but everyone calls me Mercy") describes the life that swirls around her. There's the mystery of Uncle John and the figuring out of Right and Wrong and a collection of strange and wonderful family, friends and neighbors, like Murleen and Lurleen Rexall, Easy Eddie the car salesman, Bob Rose and . . . and you should just read the book!
