YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING!
Would you try another book from Anne Rivers Siddons and/or Kate Reading?
Not after reading this book! I was so looking forward to reading a new book by Anne Rivers Siddons because I hadn't read a book of hers for a while and used to REALLY love her books. It was almost as if this was written by a different author. I was so disappointed......
What was most disappointing about Anne Rivers Siddons’s story?
The characters were flat.....lifeless....people you didn't really care about as there was no substance to them....nothing to interest you in them or their lives. It was a huge non-story. The ending was absolutely ridiculous. I'm not happy that I wasted one of my credits on this book. But, I did read it to the end just to see if it got any better. It only got worse. Bad characters, bad storyline and unnecessary bad language.
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
The narration was terrible....especially Baby! Just awful!
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Girls of August?
All of them!

Did I read the categories wrong? Pre-teen would work except for the sexual references. Young adult doesn't fit; I don't know any young adult who is immature enough for this book. Adult? None of them to be found among the "girls". I don't suppose there is a category for soppy, silly, poorly read books. Dumb is the kindest word I can find for this one.
