I love older movies, but have hesitated on seeing my boxed sets of Bing Crosby's movies (and for the time being have actually stopped for a while) simply because of his caustic comments about David Bowie from when they sang the Christmas standard 'The Small Drummer Boy' together late in his life, and the supposedly poor method he treated his seven kids (two of whom actually committed suicide). Still, this was enjoyable for non-Crosby elements, such as Carole Lombard and the antics of the fine comic duo of Gracie Allen and George Burns--not to mention a cool early appearance by Ray Milland.
After reading a few of the one and two star reviews I'm going to suppose that when those readers got wind of a "romance" between the ghost and the hunter they would be treated to a Twilight re-tread. No! Thank the heavens and the praise the saints of amazing authors this is not so! Kendare Blake has managed to come up with a brilliantly special take on the paranormal, ghost busting and the laws of attraction.But what I really loved about Blake's writing is her intent on telling a really amazing story, this is not another novel written in screenplay format with fingers crossed that it gets picked up for a film deal. Blake has a wonderfully developed universe in her head and she plays it out on the page old school in hero development, a well plotted storyline with several surprise twists and she dare's to focus on the grisly info of a amazing ghost story making this a horror story first with a dash of romance much to the lead characters chagrin. (trustme that part is actually touching and funny, right in the middle of a blood bath.)I not only couldn't place this down but this is a keeper and my fingers are crossed on the sequel, but I have to add that even if the sequel is not so hot this is a unbelievable stand alone novel. And I will most definetly be checking out Blake's other novels if the others are as amazing as this one I'm ticked that I have not discovered her sooner.
Cas is no ordinary teen and lives no ordinary life and like his father was, he is not only a hunter of ghosts, but sets out to slay s' father was gruesomely murdered by a ghost and now he carries his father's strong athame traveling the country with his mom who's a witch and their ghost sniffing cat following local legends of murderous ter moving to Thunder Bay following a lead of local legend, Anna Dressed in Blood, he comes to search out he has no simple task and Anna isn't no ordinary murdering ghost he's faced.With the support of his fresh unintended friends, he digs deeper into finding out who and what Anna is about and how to slay her, but the further he digs, the more attached he gets. And Anna isn't all he has to worry about, his father's murderous ghost has followed him and now Cas and his mates are facing what could be their death. This was a amazing read, I really enjoyed it. I was on the edge of my seat turning pages like a angry woman anxious as to search out what's going to happen next. This book has everything I enjoy, ghosts, witches, voodoo, gruesome ghostly murders with a smidge of love interest. I got a kick out of some of the references to some favorite films in the story without the eye socket punch of title dropping which felt smoothly placed in the story without taken anything away.I almost want there was a deeper look into who Cas is, what he's about besides his ghost hunting side to feel a deeper connection to his omas was a cool character.I'm definitely looking forward to picking up more books by this author.
Cas is a ghost hunter. He and his mother move around to fresh locations in find of ghosts. Some are ghosts people report seeing and wish to obtain rid of them, and some are ghost Cas happens upon. Cas's mother is a witch, that comes in very handy during some very crucial moments in this book. Cas's late father was a ghost hunter as well, and when he died his weapon called an athame was passed onto s has been summoned to another city that is haunted by a horrible ghost that has been killing people for 60 years. s's introduction to Anna was by a group of people at a party he went to "to obtain to know" people. Cas starts asking questions about if the city is haunted (which he knows it is, but he wants to gather as much information as possible). The children begin going on about this house that is haunted by a ghost they call Anna Dressed in Blood. The children tell Cas that once someone goes into Anna's house they never come out. A few city Jocks and a mate he just met decide to drive to Anna's house to scare Cas.What follows is an interesting story. This book kept me on my toes. I want I could say it scared the pants off me, but it didn't. Although it was a really, really amazing book. Once Cas meets Anna, the whole city seems to be turned upside down. Cas cannot figure out what makes Anna the method she is. She is a killing machine.While Cas has faced Anna she proves to be far more difficult to slay than he planned on.I cannot even say much more, because I know I will give too much away. I don't know if it was because I listened to it, and the narrator sounded very young, but it wasn't nearly as scary as I thought it would be. It was more suspenseful. It was very well done. I enjoyed it from the min I started and it was always hard to turn off.If you like "ghost" stories this will be a amazing one to pick up and read. There is a lot going on in the book. It's a lot of fun to follow. I am anxious to see what the next installment brings :)!
Rarely do I write a review that is unlikely to be ever looked at. After all, who needs the 12000th review of the Kindle Fire? And who needs the 249th review of Anna Dressed in Blood? But this book was so very delicious that I simply have to place my 2 cents e story revolves around Cas (our bad-ish hero) and Anna (our ghost in waiting) and a group of people who obtain tossed into a mix created in hell. I didn't expect this level of skill when I opened the book (or clicked the icon on my Kindle) but once I got to page 2, I was hooked. I missed sleep and very valuable chore time as I powered through this s is, essentially, a ghost hunter. No, not your cheesy discovery channel type with weird gizmos and dramatic night time lighting type of ghost hunter. I mean the unique knife for killing ghosts hunting down the disturbed and risky dead type of ghost hunter. And he's amazing at it as was his father before him. And he rolls into a fresh city to seek out and destroy another one he's gotten a hint on. Oh, and he goes to high school while he's at it.Enter Anna - a ghost to die for. And a lot of people do just that. Except Cas and Anna create a bit of a connection and it is that connection that really makes for a amazing story.Everyone in the story I was meant to dislike, I do. Likewise, for those I'm supposed to like. Everyone is well fleshed, even the temporary characters and it is done without excessive verbosity. I'm very much looking forward to the sequel. My only caution with this story is that I would not classify it as appropriate for most teens at all. Certainly, not one I have. It is quite gory. It goes slightly past my own limit on a couple of occasions and I would not wish those photos in an impressionable mind at all.
I went into this book not thinking I'd have fun it as much as I did. Now it's 2:40am and I have a book hangover. This was a fast read and I enjoyed every page. I love how Kendare Blake takes you on this seamingly linear story to then vear off and throw you in the latest 50 pages or so. Now I have even more questions and a powerful desire to read the 2nd book. What started off as what I thought would be a knockoff of Supernatural (it has some related elements to the show) turned into a fun and exciting ride.
Powerful start, weak finish. More of a paranormal than a horror story. I got the "Supernatural" TV present vibe right on the first chapter and immediately imagined Cas as Dean Winchester. It was scary at first, with Cas trying to search ways on how to stop Anna (the ghost) from murdering people. But the excitement fizzled out after I reached the climax of the story, as there is more to Anna's haunting and more to Cas's life as a "ghost-buster". The author just didn't plant enough "seed" or underlying tips on these sub-plots (or main plot, now I'm confused) early in the story. I loved the minor characters Carmel and Thomas, and even Will (because he played the [email protected]#$% role really well). I wished there was more exposition on Thomas's grandpa (because he was the one who summoned Cas to stop Anna in the first place), as well as Cas's mother (because I found her dormant). I also wished that there was more background on why Cas and his family have been doing it all their lives. Overall, it is a amazing read and I'd still recommend it.
If Supernatural took put in high school it would be Anna Dressed in Blood. Cas Longwood could totally have been a Winchester.I love the cover; very Amityvilleish. the depiction of Anna is spot-on. Anna Dressed in Blood is a excellent October read. It's got chills, murder, and ghosts! Surprisingly it also has romance. But this is no mushy teen love story. It is a spine-tingling, edge of your seat, pull the covers over your head to go to sleep kind of favorite hero is Carmel. She may be Queen Bee but the girl can sting you. Who knows she was going to be so fierce!*** The TV and film comparisons created are not meant as a slight on the author, but rather as a compliment and analogy for those unfamiliar with the book
Very fun. I usually avoid romance, and bought this as a ghost story. It is a amazing ghost story, but it has a heart built around all the relationships, family, friend, ad emerging adulthood and attraction, that gives weight and interest to the ghost story. This isn"t a deep novel of mortality and doesn't test to be and has a few plot holes or loose threads though those might be teasers for the second book, but this is a satisfying book with smooth writing that serves the story and enjoyable characters. Amazing entry for the buffy/supernatural style novel.
I really enjoyed this ghost story. I loved Anna. I loved Anna the scary creature ghost and Anna the sad girl e descriptions in this book were so vivid and detailed. I really wish to see a detailed illustration of what Anna looks like. The dress she wears that is constantly dripping blood and her eyes that are pools of oil - all of those descriptions created Anna seem an awesome and scary ghostess with the mostess.I also really liked Cas. He works so hard to test to avenge his father and obtain himself ready to take on the creature that ate his dad. He doesn't really have a life of his own but moves from city to city killing ghosts and sending them wherever it is they go. Then he takes the Anna case and suddenly he has friends, even though he tries to push them away. Then Anna turns out to be something so various than what he expected, and he can't support but be fascinated by her. So Cas and his mates set out to search out Anna's story and stop her from killing the people who come into her house. The method they got to learn about Anna's murder was really interesting and the truth is quite ere are different types of "creatures" in this book - from easy ghosts to voodoo dudes to white witches and black witches. There's even a cat who can detect the presence of ghosts. When we obtain introduced to the huge poor of this story, he is quite creepy and intimidating, from his eyes that are sewn shut to his powers and what he can do (no spoilers here).Toward the end though the story seemed a bit rushed and choppy. They were preparing to take out the huge bad, and then just like that, something happened and it was all over. I'm seeing that a lot in YA these days and it is a bit annoying. But overall this is a amazing story and I'm curious to read what happens in the next book.
I have read quite a bit of YA fiction the latest few years and in the beginning, I was surprised by how amazing some of it was. Some of it is overly-romanticized teen angst, true, but some of the stories that have been coming out really shine as potential classics in their field. Maybe not in the method of "The Chronicles of Narnia", "The Secret Garden" or "Old Yeller", but nonetheless, classic tales. Some of them are just plain fun."Anna Dressed in Blood" is both those things. Maybe I have low standards for 5-star reviews, but when I give a 5-star rating, it is because that book has struck some chord in me that will stay with me long after I've read it. In my opinion, this book is a truly fine ghost story. Granted, the teen romance angle towards the end was unnecessary and a bit too sweet, but it does drive the force for the sequel, "Girl of Nightmares". All authors in today's writing globe have to at least have a sequel or better yet, some whole stretched-out series. Sad but true. Cas is a amazing main hero with a cast of equally likeable cohorts.I hate recapping a storyline in reviews. I wish you to go read the books for yourself. When I've given a book a 5-star review, as I have with this one, I can't say anything the author hasn't said method better than I ever is book has been kicking around on my Kindle for sometime. I should have read it sooner. It's October and this is a damn fine ghost story for October.
Erotico Psycho Dressed to Slay is directed and written by Brian De Palma. It stars Michael Caine, Angie Dickinson, Nancy Allen, Keith Gordon and Dennis Franz. Melody is by Pino Donaggio and cinematography by Ralf D. Bode. Brian De Palma continues his commitment to Hitchcock thrillers with this erotic and lurid slice of entertainment pie. Plot in short order finds a razor wielding blonde woman on the loose in the city. A high class prostitute, a psychiatrist and the son of a victim test to solve the mystery before they themselves fall to the blonde killer. De Palma throws it all at the audience here, merrily pushing people's buttons as he goes. He uses all the tools and tricks of his trade for maximum impact, blending a number of genre staples and churning out a hyper stylised neo-noir that gleefully toys with audience expectations. Oh the plot is bonkers, deliriously so, but De Palma is a crafty pro who deftly marries up the excesses of the plot with virtuoso camera work, and not content with that he then brings Donaggio's musical score into play to ensure the viewer's senses are tingling. Unsurprisingly for the director, Dressed to Slay is sexually charged and violent, from the steamy beginning that ruffled feathers in a number of quarters, to the outrageous coda at the end where De Palma homage's himself, it's a movie revelling in its schlocky being. However, it still has time for dramatic suspense and dangerously sensual mysticism, reference an extended section of movie that sees Allen's hooker pursued relentlessly through the perils of the subway system, and a sequence played out at an art gallery without dialogue as we become Dickinson's disoriented eyes. Then there is the key murder scene, a dizzying array of slashes and cartoonish blood, it's purposely excessive and followed by screw tightening suspense that sets up the rest of the movie. De Palma and his on form principal cast members are having fun, how could they not with such trashy material to work from? Is Dressed to Slay phobic and misogynistic? Well plenty of people think so, in fact there was quite a fall out when the movie was first released, when De Palma was subjected to the ire of a few minority groups. Judge for yourself is the only method to go really, but personally in amongst the schlock I feel there's comment on the dangers of fantasising beyond your realm, or of unfaithfulness, maybe even that America is itself irresponsible for its treatment of women on film? Of course it could just be De Palma at his most playful? Sitting there giggling to himself as others lose their cool… 8/10
Following a housewife’s brutal murder, the only witness to the incident squads up with the woman’s son to test to search the culprit which leads them to the patient of a psychiatrist who treated her and tries to stop the assassin from striking them in order to cover the crime. This one turned out to be quite the rather enjoyable effort. A lot of the film’s amazing parts come from the manner in which this one deals with the expectations featured here of the movie by following so close to its influences. As it follows so close to the main format here, as the general structure employed here comes directly with the structure of having the first half focus solely on the victim to obtain killed off and then morph over into the investigation into the incidents, that makes for a amazing deal of fun here as it deals with the few changes to be had with the storyline. That familiarity lends itself a amazing deal to the overall manner in which this one moves along as that keeps this one a lot more entertaining than it really should be without a whole lot of slashing action throughout here. With a huge emphasis on the murder investigation and her involvement in the procedure, there’s a nice emphasis here to follow up the later adverts of that ones’ followers in a distinctly European manner by introducing not only the main investigation from the police but also going rather nicely into the amateur investigation by method of a piece of evidence only briefly glimpsed during the incident that becomes a central part of the investigation. These elements all give it a rather distinct and pronounced atmosphere to these brands of movies which really lets it dwell in that type of sleaze far more comfortably than would be expected, not only from the type of nudity but also the rather stark sex scenes and frequently intoned psychosexual themes from the killer’s motivation which is straight out of that particular school of thriller which makes this one connect quite well there. Even with some incredibly well-done stalker scenes, including the opening attack in the elevator, the subway sequence or the finale at the office which give this some rather suspenseful stalking as well to balance it all with plenty to like. These don’t support the fact that there’s just not a whole lot of slasher action here, as the more thriller aspects here dominate this one so it doesn’t have a lot of stalking scenes and the body count itself is so low as to not really offer much in the method of bloodshed or gore. Those looking for a straight-up slasher won’t be interested in this one at all. Rated R: Extreme Graphic Language, Full Nudity, Graphic Violence and several intense sex scenes.
I bought this book to read to my 5 year old daughter. We read a small bit each night. It was a very amazing book to read to a small girl as it talked about multiple sides of the story on bullying. My daughter really started to understand how people can feel when they are bullied and how to handle it if she sees someone being bullied.
What you say can change the method someone feels, but this book makes kids aware of the consequences of what happens --for better and for worse-- when two very various girls decide not to express their true thoughts.Why would someone create an outrageous claim that could not be true? Why would a classmate choose to taunt someone over that claim again and again? Why would one classmate hide a amazing talent for design while another classmate often showed off her ability in dance? Why would someone feel poor doing something if no one ever scolded her for doing it?Read and discuss this vintage story about school friendships with your girl. Some themes, like individual responsibility, never grow old.
I first encountered this book in elementary school when it was read to us during class. It's one of those books that stuck in my brain and I always remembered it. The bully part was memorable but for me the part that really grabbed my attention was that a girl really could draw 100 dresses and do it well. This book is the inspiration for My Quiet Dolls by Vickie Smith- a book that helps kids make a wide dozens of soft felt dolls and outfits- no sewing needed and also inspired a series of lesson plans also available on Amazon for incorporating The Hundred Dresses into school curriculum lesson e writing style is easy and is told from the perspective of a girl talking about another girl who gets bullied by always wearing one dress to school every day and having a funny name. The illustrations are easy and classic. They add to the story but don't overpower this well voiced story.
I was needed to purchase this book for a college class about teaching reading. There are some books that are keepers because they are written well and tug the heartstrings. This is one of those books. It is at an elementary level, but is applicable at all levels. Everyone can relate to this book.
The coarsening of our culture can be easily compared to Peggy's treatment of Wanda and Maddie's struggle with conscience. That adults today model the abhorrent behavior instead of kindness and the courage to do what's right even when it is hard is shameful. But where is the shame? A amazing book to make discussion.
This book is so sweet for so a lot of reasons - first and foremost, the illustrations are absolutely beautiful. My 7 year old traces the whimsical pictures with her fingers as we read. The story is equally sweet, showing a girl can repurpose and reuse one of her favorite things, her beautiful pink dress, and her mother teaches her how to obtain crafty and think creatively. My girls ask for this book every night, definitely one of our absolute favorites.
Older toddlers will love this book because reading it will create them feel like they are seeing the globe through bigger girls. It's amazing how the book lets you teach lessons on how to solve issues and not waste things. The illustrations are peppy and fun and my girl loves the diverse cast of characters.
Got this for our nursery... but my 3 year old daughter loves dresses. This story really spoke to her and she loved all the colorful, fun pictures. It gave us both a lot to think about when it comes to recycling our clothing. Definitely recommend for lots of ages.
This has become my five year old daughter's favorite book. She quotes from it often ("making molehills out of mountains", etc.) and it's honestly become a source of inspiration to her in terms of creativity and issue solving. I really can't recommend it enough. I even search myself tearing up at the end when I read it aloud because the underlying theme is about a kid growing up and ever-changing.
I bought this book for my almost 3 year old that loves to play dress up. It might be a small advanced for her but she still loves it. We both have fun reading it over and over; it's quickly becoming a favorite. The illustrations are adorable too!
My granddaughter is 4 and will only to wear dresses. She really likes the story and enjoys having it read to her. She liked learning about all the transformations of the dress as it was sewn into a various article of clothing each time the girl in the story grew.
Charlotte Malone decides to take a breather from running her bridal store one day to take a walk around a local estate sale, not intending to buy anything, just look and take her mind off her stresses. She's surprised to search herself greatly interested in an antique wooden trunk that appears to have it's lock welded shut. A mysterious man in a vibrant purple shirt appears as the auctioneer, somehow coaxing her to bid on the item though she has no use for it. Charlotte ends up winning the trunk, taking it home, and with the support of some mates manages to eventually obtain it open. Inside, she finds a wedding gown that clearly looks like it's from another era, though she can't quite put which one. Strangely, it also appears to not have any signs of aging, as if it was just completed only yesterday. Charlotte becomes increasingly fascinated with learning the provenance of the gown, her research leading her to the stories of three other women -- Emily from the year 1912, Mary Grace from the year 1939, and Hilary from 1968 -- who all wore this dress on their wedding day. Each woman brings a riveting piece of history to the story of the dress, stories that will come together to explain the dress's pull on Charlotte.I expected a sweet, fluffy story going in but found myself pleasantly surprised to come to the latest page and realize I really loved this tale! The various points of history are all fascinating and each hero is special and life-like. There are good-hearted characters to cheer for and wicked people to chop eyes at (figuratively, of course). I can't think of one hero here, amazing or bad, that did not keep my interest til the end! And the mystery of the dress itself -- I had to know how all these stories tied together! There's also the cute couplings to have fun -- the back and forth struggle between Charlotte and her man (not a poor struggle though -- more of a "man, it'll be amazing when they come around" kind of tension), even through their rough patches they had nice banter and sweet, honest moments. I think my favorite, though, was Mary Grace and her husband as they were portrayed as the old couple in the retirement home, still looking out for each other. Having known couples like that when I worked in those kinds of homes, it definitely brought some warm-fuzzies to my heart :-)I liked that this story had the blend of sweet, mysterious and heart-tugging without getting over-the-top sappy. These characters just felt like straight-up amazing people you'd know or meet in your daily life. That tiniest vein of magical realism -- with the mystery man in purple -- was a beautiful cool touch to hold the pages turning as well!
I purchased this novel by mistake. I'm not the type of woman who likes romantic novels at all, or watch what people call "Chick Flicks". I DO like Mysteries, so maybe that's why I bought "The Wedding Dress". If it was a mistake on my part to buy it, it was a GOOD mistake, because I had a hard time putting the book down! Without giving too much away, the novel is about an "I can do everything on my own, thank you very much" woman who owns a contemporary bridal shop. She also is in the midst of emotional doubt about whether she, herself, should marry a man she only met a couple of months before he proposed (their marriage was set in only 2 extra months). She was pulled toward his huge family, something she never had, because her mother died when she was young, and she never knew her father. She finds herself somehow buying an old, beat-up trunk at an estate sale for more cash than she could believe. Inside the trunk is a beautiful, timeless wedding gown in excellent condition, although it was said to be 100 years old. Her journey to search the owner of this remarkable dress leads her (Charlotte) to search not only the ones who wore it before, but it also lead her to knowing her own heart and her heritage. It was a sappy, melodramatic book at all, which I was afraid it would be. It had a amazing mystery and ALOT of wisdom that could be applicable to us all. I would recommend it.
Charlotte,ended up at an auction ,and bought up at an auction a old trunk for thousand dollars,mortified of her impulsive,without knowing a attractive story began to unfold,with passion,excitement and disappointed etc. "Emily in the 1912 ,the first white woman to wear a wedding gown sewn by African American woman." " was a scandal on those days." And the dress moved from woman to woman,decade to decade,it would be impossible for a gown of this caliber preserved so perfectly to be original to the trunk as the auctioneer claimed,"hundred years old.?" "No way" it's easy beautiful,"this gown is divine." For the bride to be to hear," what she feared the most,!" " love you,not sure I'm ready to obtain married.!" And her heart tumbled to it's knees," he is with another woman and she is beautiful.!" The beauty and the grace how this book is writing will touch your heart,touch mine,(my mom's name was Charlotte,and I bought an old trunk,cost me 100 dollars was empty,hahaha, I fixed and looking very elegant.) To read about the similarities,about my mother it's weird,my grandmother was making a living sowing only wedding gowns,my mother was only 12 years old,when her mother passed,and the love for white gowns was the only memories ,she had from her mother,I give her the dream,she wanted to see me in my wedding day in my white dress." This book I don't have words how create me feel,only I had the most memorable times from the elma
This book pushes a lot of my romance-reader buttons. It has conflict, secrets, lead characters with integrity and faith, and a few characters and happenings that create things a bit more interesting on the method to happily ever after. Now, I'm not a large fan of dual-timeline stories, and that might have tripped me up if the author hadn't so seamlessly woven THE dress throughout each of four brides stories. And along with the (sisterhood of the traveling) wedding dress that miraculously fits each bride without alteration, a certain odd gentleman in purple who seems to be in the right locations at all the right times to give small nudges to those brides.While some of the characters (ok, mostly Tim) took me a bit to warm to, I instantly fell for Grace and her beau. There is something about encountering lively older characters in novels that just tickles me pink, and I have a definite fondness for 1930's stories.Ultimately, this is an unabashedly romantic novel. Romance that spreads across the decades and links four women in more ways than one. It is also very much a feel-good novel that also touches on prejudice, pride, grief, and faith.Having read the entire Royal Wedding series in fast succession latest December, I once again enjoyed the author's writing voice in The Wedding Dress. Hauck's writing is consistent, pleasant, and inviting. I love how the faith of the characters is just out there, being lived and discussed, and I always have fun seeing how she weaves in the supernatural element. Her characters are also consistent, unfortunately, in that they sometimes almost feel like watching the same set of actors trying to take on slightly various roles in a series of movies.An enjoyable, quick, and decidedly Southern read. 3/5 stars for sheer romance and enjoyable is review refers to a finished copy received from Thomas Nelson and Zondervan's Fiction Guild. No compensation was received. All opinions expressed are my own.
I loved this dual-timeline story! Both of the main romantic storylines were unbelievable and I loved switching back and forth between the two and finding out the recent happenings. There was definitely plenty of angst to go around in both stories and lots of unbelievable romantic tension. I also enjoyed learning the wedding stories of the other two women who wore the dress. Four women in all ended up wearing the dress in this e Wedding Dress was hard to set down and I found myself reading “just a small more” to search out what would happen! I highly recommend this to fans of romantic fiction, whether contemporary or historical.
I like the intertwining of current day with a time a hundred years earlier. It's awesome how much society changed in that time. Tim and Charlotte seem rather selfish at times. Emily obeyed her parents, society and her future husband almost to the detriment of herself. Adding the stories of the two other brides rounds out the book very well. I felt that Jesus played a larger role than necessary.
The premise of a wedding dress that seems to have some sort of magic surrounding it was intriguing. The story of the dress, at times, however, seemed to obtain lost in a sea of a lot of characters that jumped around from one time era to another. At first it was just 2 characters, Emily and Charlotte, then more were added and it just kept jumping around. I wasn't a fan of this style of writing. I did search the main hero , Charlotte, and her fiancé, Tim , to be rather immature. Once I learned the secret surrounding Charlotte's identity, near the end of the book, I just didn't care anymore. Then it jumped back in time again, which I skimmed at the end. It just seemed to obtain a bit confusing and convoluted with all the jumping around, but overall, it was mostly enjoyable.
I would say 2.5 to be completely honest, but I rounded up. The Wedding Dress can be summarized in two word. Fun. Forgettable. I finished the book because it did keep my interest as to what was going to happen, so at least there's that. But it was just not very well written. I felt the characters to be flat and one echoed the other-that is to say, no one had any specific personality, for the main character's personality, quirks, and ways of thinking also seemed to fit every other hero in the book, with maybe some slight but insignificant variations. The characters are as generic as the title. Which I am SO disappointed in...The Wedding Dress? Really? You couldn't come up with something more clever? Entertaining and a very light read it's..."fun"... if you like books that are simple and whose conclusions are all wrapped up with a beautiful small rgettable- Definitely won't search itself a permanent home on my bookshelf. I don't think I could have fun it twice. I'm planning on donating it, and to be honest, after writing this review, I probably won't ever think of this book again.
A attractive story showing the interconnectedness and strength of four women, who without a beautiful, magical wedding gown, would never have known one another. This book has been calling to me from my ‘to read list’ ever since I place it there. The attractive cover and the idea of “Four Brides. One Dress.” created me hurry to finish the series of books I had been e Wedding Dress by Rachel Hauck, is the story of a wedding dress, and the four brides who were destined to wear it. Charlotte is a woman who has the uncanny ability to search the excellent wedding dress for any bride, except it seems for herself. Struggling with her doubts about getting married she goes to her favorite put to pray, only to search a charity auction taking place. While there, a strange man dressed in purple, convinces her to purchase an old trunk with its lock welded e trunk and its contents take her on a journey of sorts. She finds not only the legend of the beautiful, mysterious dress, but the women who have worn it. She finds the family she never thought she had through the stories and lives of the women (and men) this dress has touched.
SPOILER ALERT!How can I even start to express my love for this novel? The author wove a attractive story with a heartfelt meaning into a unbelievable notice meant for anyone and everyone. I had been thinking throughout the novel that the wedding dress might be a symbol for the Gospel, and that the man in purple (both in 1912 and current time) could have signified either God or an Angel; but to have the author confirm at the end was just another reason to add this book to one of the best I have ever read. If you decide to read this novel you will laugh, obtain frustrated, and cry; but most importantly you will feel God's love and peace.
