Jan 03, Sandy rated it it was amazing Today at 5AM I dropped my significant other off at his work. Instead of turning right out of the parking lot as I always do, I turned left and kept going. Yeah, I can relate to this book. For a while I imagined just driving and driving, stopping in new or even revisiting old places, getting a room, checking in relaxing, walking, exploring, visiting.
There are no time constraints, no pressures, Today at 5AM I dropped my significant other off at his work. There are no time constraints, no pressures, an easing of stress, responsibilities. I enjoyed reading "Escape" and found it totally plausible, not just for myself, but for the many others in mind numbing situations.
My sister, for one, is driven by the pressures of "Billable. Billable," so I understand and can relate to both main characters. I truly enjoyed every word and circumstance, especially the animal refuge and the symbolic coyotes. An escape from work, family, technology, friends, obligations. An escape from the harsh reality of the real world. And the promise of escape from my whining child even a short-term one is what drew me to this book in the first place.
This is the story of year-old Emily wife of James, employee of Lane Lavash, and a woman who dreams of becoming a mother. Emily thinks shes living the dream in New York City until one At one point or another everyone searches for an escape from their busy life. And the promise of escape from my whining child — even a short-term one — is what drew me to this book in the first place.
This is the story of year-old Emily — wife of James, employee of Lane Lavash, and a woman who dreams of becoming a mother. At this realization Vicki suddenly has an overwhelming need to get away from it all. So she does. Emily keeps in minimal contact with her mother and her husband James but otherwise has no desire to maintain even a shred of her previous life. She has no plan — aside from having no plan — and decides to play everything by ear.
I wanted to love this book — I really did. The compelling summary on the book jacket made it seem like something I would love! But while this book started out with great promise it sort of stopped moving forward a few chapters in.
It makes me sad to write this but Escape is boring, plain and simple. To view it, click here. All right. Although this book started out promisingly, it got more and more tedious by the page, and then more and more ludicrous by the chapter. It starts off being about a woman who runs away from her New York life to try to reconnect with her inner self, but ends up including wild love-making sessions in the woods, long-winded obsessions about coyotes, arson, hostage-taking, SWAT teams and her husband getting shot.
Of course there was paragraph after paragraph about coyotes howling and their All right. The rating started at a promising 4-star, but very steadily dropped to a 1-star or below.
I started swearing to myself when some new fiasco showed up in the pages. The book is too serious to be a chicklit book; its attempt at being a crime thriller is too weak; its philosophical musings about the meaning of life too contrived - the book tries to be too many things at once and succeeds at nothing. This book, like Jude, was so promising, but turned out to be a major disappointment.
Synopsis Emily Aulenbach is 32, a lawyer married to a lawyer, living and working in Manhattan. She spends her days in a cubicle, surrounded by lawyers in other cubicles, talking on the phone with people sickened by tainted bottled water. Her firm is being paid by the bottler to minimize claims. Convinced that she is betraying her dreams, she has looked into changing firms, but no one is hiring. She wakes up each morning dreading her work. Her relationships are superficial and rushed. She connects to three things — her computer, her BlackBerry, and her watch.
