BoomerangOn Oct 1 and realized in early January that it was way past due Sarah was very helpful 35 Mixed feelings about January that it was way past due Sarah was very helpful 35 Mixed feelings about book in spite of #Very Good Writing Forty Something Recently Divorced #good writing Forty something recently divorced Rey surprises his sister Melanie for her 40th birthday and takes her to the seaside resort they visited as children During their stay memories of those childhood vacations and their mother who died when they were young children surface Melanie remembers something that really shakes her Before she has a chance to share the memory with Antoine there s a circumstance that erases the memory Antoine is floundering still in love with his ex wife missing his children and daily family life feeling lonely and unmoored He is a man who has difficulty etting close and sharing feelings until he meets a very interesting woman a mortician named Angele The development of their relationship is one of the strengths of the story Their are a lot of family secrets and tragedy s along the way Because we meet the character s through Antoine s point of view his detachment keeps them at a distance that made it hard to know and care about them That dimmed the suspense of some of the family secrets for me I was fortunate to be asked to blurb this book That s always a bit nerve wracking What if I don t like it I shouldn t have worried De Rosnay is such a sure and strong writer and she knows her characters well Most enjoyable to me was reading a story about deep family relationships written from the point of view of a sympathetic male character Beautifully done However the reader really must try to separate this book in her or his mind from Sarah s Key They are worlds apart and impossible to compare Both excellent but an apple and an orange After having read Sarah s Key and somewhat enjoying the writing as well as the story I was looking forward to this book Unfortunately it was uite a disappointment The story involving a mysterious love death and the aftermath it left on the children involved had fine concepts to work with However the story became bogged down and drawn out into what ultimately became a love story I think with middle aged angst with teenage angst thrown in as well This story was told by the narrator Antoine who to me seemed to whine his way through the book and ultimately became a character I disliked There were the ratuitous sex scenes that whine his way through the book and ultimately became a character I disliked There were the ratuitous sex scenes that to be put in there to enliven a dull read Unfortunately they didn t work I personally do not like a book where a character meets someone and five minutes later is having One Wish (Thunder Point, great sex with them I prefer my characters to develop a little relationship before they head down that roadUltimately I call this book total fluff So if you want to read something that takes no time and no brain to read I recommend this as a possible novel to fill that need I ve realized that Ms de Rosnay s books are a bit like cheap bottle of wines when you re immersed in them they re hard to put down Then you finish them have some time to think things over and realize they really weren t thatreat and it was that you were caught up in the moment A Secret Kept shares uite a few similarities to Sarah s Key although I did find this novel s plot the stronger of the two Following a car accident that leaves his sister seriously injured a man spirals into a midlife crisis let. Ories; it reminds Mélanie of something unexpected and deeply disturbing about their last island summer When on the drive home to Paris she finally summons the courage to reveal what she knows to Antoine her emotions overcome her and she loses control of the carRecovering from the accident in a nearby hospital Mélanie tries to recall what caused her to crash Antoine encounters an unexpected ally sexy streetwise Angèle a mortician who will teach him new meanings for the words life love and death Suddenly however the past comes swinging back at both siblings burdened with a dark truth about their mother Clarisse Trapped in the wake of a shocking family secret shrouded by taboo Antoine must confront his past. Me recommend reading as little about the plot as possible if you do plan to read it too many summaries La santa anoressia. Digiuno e misticismo dal Medioevo a oggi give away some of the important details Similar to Sarah s Key there are some beautiful passages an This is just a okay book for me It is family drama that is told by a middle aged man Antoine Rey who s living a dreary life his wife divorced him hisrown up children starting to re This book is a uick read but pretty insufferable Aside from being poorly written overly descriptive convoluted perspectives clunky use of adjectives etc the plot is uneven and uninteresting and as many reviewers have pointed out the secret referenced in the title is not worth waiting for The characters are one dimentional sketches and many of the mini plot twists serve no point building up to nothing and are uickly discarded Strangely for the first couple of chapters I kept picturing the narrator Antoine as a woman and I think this is due to the author s inability to Remembering and Repeating get into a male mindset It almost feels like she wrote a female character and decided to change her at the last moment to a man I m not sure why she didn t make Melanie the narrator and change up the story a bit I also found the relationship between the narrator and his sister to be kind of creepy am I the only one Antoine s newirlfriend is presented as a savior someone who swoops in and instantly makes him feel better about his emotional immaturity and his dysfunctional family But this woman is painted as a one dimensional emotionally unavailable overly sexed type A biker chick caricature Not sure how someone so seemingly shallow is able turn his life around so profoundly For most of the book brother and sister are in this together sleuthing and uncovering clues about their family s past and out of nowhere Antoine decides he isn t up for sharing his newest discoveries with Melanie then he Antoine decides he isn t up for sharing his newest discoveries with Melanie then he out that she somehow already knows everything he knows and THEN she tells him she doesn t want to know any should he find anything So incongruous Having loved Sarah s Key I was especially disappointed in this follow up novel I hope this author is not a one hit wonder Wow I never read Sarah s Key so I cannot compare But I thought this book was written at least 50 years too late for the big reveal to actually matter If I hadn t been listening to the audio on a long road trip this would have been a book I put down right away Let me just say that I m not surprised that our bookstore didn t sell A SINGLE COPY of this book in hardcover and though the paperback has been on the bestseller list for a couple of weeks already we ve not sold one paperback copy yet either SPOILERALERTIf you Pay Attention To Pronoun Use attention to pronoun use I do when reading you re Leonardo and the Mona Lisa Story gonnaguess this early on anyway But the big secret the one that makes her daughter drive off the road nearly killing herself and her brother when they re allrown up and their mother is dead anyway is that their mother didn t love their father but actually loved another woman Wow How positively 1960s of the author Really THat s the tragedy that has marked these people s lives and made them miserable way into their adulthood I thought the French were supposed to be so sophisticated anyway They can handle heterosexual love affairs with aplomb but not lesbian ones Somehow I don t think that s
