    I can not tell you how disappointed I am in this book Isabel Allende is a great novelist and I was looking forward to her foray into mystery writing It was so bad that I couldn t believe she has written it I puzzled whether some non talented relative wrote this under her name It is the only scenario that makes sense to me It has an unbelievable plot full of holes and cardboard characters.Let s start with the characters Indiana is Amanda s mother and a holistic healer She practices Intuitive massage, Reiki, magnet therapy, crystal therapy and aromatherapy Amazingly, she struggles to make a living She has an ample diva bosom, a blond mane sinuous curves, long lashes and the sexiness of a gangsters moll Sound a little trite yet She also dates a man who is a scion of a wealthy San Francisco family who is so embarrassed by the way she dresses that he doesn t take her out in public Amanda is a typical geeky teen ager who has a small group of geeky friends that meet on line and solve crimes Ama...

    Isabel Allende was as always a good read Her new adventure into murder mysteries was delightful, yet a bit drawn out and really over populated with too many characters For each character there was a comprehensive backstory and it became too much in the end for me The book is 512 pages and could have been at least 150 pages shorter It took most of the book to get all the backstories in before the murder mystery could really pick up speed Maybe it was planned this way Most readers had a gripe with this.As with all her books, she introduces the loutish nature of some men, but compensates with a bunch of good, noble male persona as well She still entertains her readers with the power of family, and a touch of mysticism in the supernatural powers around us The women are strong and resilient, seductive, beautiful and bossy Well, some of them The young girl, Amanda Mart n, who sleuths with the help of her her online friends through a series of real murders, was a bit too unbelievable for me They referred to the first murder as the Case of the Misplaced Baseball Bat, so as not to insult the victim by giving it a explicit name They were five teenagers ...

    I read in the NYTimes book review that Isabel Allende had a good time writing this, her first mystery novel She might have had a good time, but I didn t I put it down after the first 100 pages, because the story hadn t really started yet The book was poorly written and full of quirky characters Every time some action got started, Allende would stop and do backstory on one of these quirky characters I gave up and looked at the ending Reading the last chapter, I m glad I didn t waste my time reading the entire book.Just one example of lazy, uninteresting writing At page 156, she starts a chapter by going through the morning of Ryan Miller, an ex serviceman, and his dog Atilla None of this has any relevance to the plot At page 159, he goes to a private swim club and sneaks the dog in His training is deta...

    Ripper grabbed me from the start with this line Mom is still alive, but she s going to be murdered at midnight on Good Friday Racing through its last pages an earthquake couldn t dislodge me from my seat An entertaining good read with a game worked into the plot.Looks like I m going to be the rogue reader here I really liked Ripper and here s why.Allende does characters studies well and those in Ripper were solid if a bit quirky I liked them, wanted to know them and cared about what happened to them I particularly liked the main character, Amanda Like Flavia de Luce series by Alan Bradley I found Amanda a smart thinker and fun Amanda s older but quite wise and her team of sleuths are interesting associates Her grandfather describes Amanda as idiosyncratic of appearance, timorous of character, but magnificent of mind Agreed Second most liked character is the Purebred Belgian Malinois, Attila, smarter and stronger than German Shepherds, and they keep their back straight, so they don t suffer hip problems A former war dog, you d not find a loyal companion He was rescued by a former navy seal, discharged honorably after he lost his leg in combat Attila had been trained to defend and attack, to sniff...

    Um Yikes.So, this is clearly an Allende novel because her style and voice as an author are so distinct There is no doubt in my mind that she wrote this book and that is what is most shocking Isabel Allende wrote THIS book.This is a crime novel, not a mystery, but a crime novel If you are expecting a who done it, or spot the murderer type of book, then definitely go elsewhere This novel is about the process of crime investigation which has never been a prevalent theme in Allende s writing, so why all of a sudden, did she chose to go down this path It is so far out of the author s wheelhouse, and good for her for taking risks, but in no way is this a successful novel It has overly detailed and complicated characters pages and pages of backstory, for every single person mentioned, that derails the story ...

    A trav s de la presente conocemos la historia de Indiana, una masajista y sanadora excepcional Inocente, sincera, abierta a la vida, aunque con ciertos problemas amorosos Su camino se termina cruzando invariablemente con el de un implacable asesino serial Su hija Amanda, y Ripper, un juego de rol, puede ser lo nico que pueda llegar a detenerlo.Promocionada por Allende como su primer novela de misterio, a decir verdad nos pareci mas bien una novela rom ntica disfrazada de novela policial Una lectura ciertamente entretenida, aumque con ciertas reservas La novela tarda bastante en arrancar, pero pasado el primer cuarto del libro se vuelve bastante atrapante las otras tres cuartas partes del libro se nos pas volando Sin embargo, hay algo aqu que no le vamos a perdonar a Allende y es que no se puede terminar una novela de 400 p ginas en un pilogo de 2, eso simplemente no se hace Pr cticamente carece de closure Imperd...

    There are a number of problems in reading this book.The Number One problem is Upfront Bald Faced Lying in the marketing of the book.1 The title has nothing to do with the contents of the book on any level It supposedly is the name of a video game However, the video game is never played or used as a clue or ever referenced again after being used to explain how a club in the book starts Ripper references nothing about ripping or anything knife y which occurs in the book Instead, it is used as the name of a kind of meek role playing club which meets online to figure out real life crime The crimes the club tries to solve are actually based on stolen inside information that the leader of the club, Amanda Jackson, who is either 16 or 17 her age is given as both in different places in the book, but since she is going to college soon and it mentions her almost being 18 several times, I decided that the earlier reference to her being 16 was an editing error acquires Her father, Bob Martin, is a deputy chief of homicide in San Francisco, and it s his information that Amanda rips off, although Martin could care less when he finds out, and he actually provides Amanda with whatever she wants to know later These are the only two possible reas...

    2 starsIn Isabel Allende s Acknowledgments for Ripper which to me almost come off, really, as a mea culpa for her 500 page genre buster , she indicates that this was a 2012 project idea by her agent to have Allende and her husband evidently an author himself, though good luck finding anything about Willie Gordon on Goodreads to collaborate on a Crime Novel , but that they quickly realized the project would end in divorce Prophetic, given their separation announcement a scant two years later Ms Allende, with her husband s guidance, went ahead with the novel anyway I always applaud the effort of an established author to think outside the box and try something new it s what led me to Ripper in the first place , but it becomes immediately clear that Ms Allende is really out of her element here Without her bailiwick of magical realism, she flounders She seems to know her San Francisco Ripper s setting pretty well, but building suspense, establishing a creepy ...
