Tepid Response from Shortridge Fan
Would you try another book from Jennie Shortridge and/or Angela Dawe?
I read all of Ms. Shortridges books two or more times. I eagerly awaited LWM. The story is interesting. The sentence structure is short, almost stilted and I don't think Ms. Dawe's vocalization of the story represents the characters very well.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
Lucy's character development is interesting. The use of extreme profanity in the dialogue comes off as unnecessary. When Lucy finds the initials of Grady's sister "MF" and goes right to the nastiest possible interpretation of those letters, it just sounded implausible for her character.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Grady's voice is terrible. He sounds weak and nasally. The shrill tone of the narrators voice doesn't help me get the emotional content of the story. It actually irritates me so I want to stop listening. I am a fan of Ms. Shortridge, though. I waited so long to read this book. I'm trying to ignore the narrator's tone and focus on the characters.
Could you see Love Water Memory being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
The story actually would work well for a movie script. Mark Ruffalo would play Grady. Lucy would be played by Jennifer Lawrence.
