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 toRipper 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 FranciscoRipper s setting pretty well, but building suspense, establishing a creepy story, developing characters for both the protags and the potential bad guys are qualities that sputter here I never really could buy the premise here an online gaming group of six called Ripper culling the headlines for lurid San Francisco murders and competing I think to solve the crimes before the police do Even if this is a real phenomenon, Ms Allende has no clue how to sell this group of mostly teenagers and make them believable We re supposed to believe thanks to the game master , a high school girl named Amanda Mart n, and her relationship with her father, a SFPD chief investigator that these teenagers oh, and Amanda s grandfather have the investigative wherewithal to outwit the murderersand the police FBI It kinda reminds me of a half baked YA stalwart Cory Doctorow novel though you re not likely to find murder victims sodomized by baseball bats from Doctorow, for instance Anyway, we learn in the prologue that Amanda s holistic healer mom named Indianareally is abducted by a lycanthropic psychopath, and that they have until midnight to find the culprit who s made off with her It s been well over two decades since I ve read Ms Allende sHouse of the Spirits which I remember liking a lot, though I couldn t begin to tell you why , but I remember enough to know thatRipper isn t even remotely close to exhibiting the grace and nuance of her first novel It s almost as if Ms Allende herself was abducted like the victims inRipper and forced to write this to save her own life The entire 500 page endeavor felt forced and contrived, and though she wrote an obligatory Acknowledments section, I think she d agree with me that this was pretty bad, and one project she d just as soon forget and move on The problem with being too nice, is that sometimes you let the bad ones in.In this novel we learn the story of Indiana, a masseur and exceptional healer Innocent, sincere, and open to life, but with several love problems Her path invariably ends up crossing the one of an implacable serial killer Her young daughter, Amanda, and Ripper, a role playing game, may just be the only thing that might be able to stop him.Promoted as Allende s first mystery, in truth it appears muchto be a romanc The problem with being too nice, is that sometimes you let the bad ones in.In this novel we learn the story of Indiana, a masseur and exceptional healer Innocent, sincere, and open to life, but with several love problems Her path invariably ends up crossing the one of an implacable serial killer Her young daughter, Amanda, and Ripper, a role playing game, may just be the only thing that might be able to stop him.Promoted as Allende s first mystery, in truth it appears muchto be a romance novel vaguely disguised as a crime one A pretty entertaining read, but with some reservations The novel takes some time to start, but after the first quarter it becomes really quite gripping, the other three quarters of the book went by in a blur However, something that I cannot forgive Allende, is that you can t end a 400p novel in a 2p epilogue That is just simply wrong It practically lacks of closure whatsoever Unforgivable But even still, a worthy read There is no movie of the book, so less homework this time.Still remaining, Allende s greatest, The House of Spirits and the movie of course.Until next time, El problema de ser demasiado buena, es que a veces dej s entrar a los malos.En esta novela 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 joven 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 parece mas bien una novela rom ntica levemente 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 que no le puedo 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 cierre Imperdonable Pero a n as , vali la pena No existe una pel cula del libro, as que esta vez hay menos tarea.Queda pendiente La casa de los esp ritus , la obra magna de Allende y la pel cula claro.Hasta la pr xima, 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 Intuiti 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 Amanda s father is the SFPD deputy chief of homicide, thankfully,and provides her insider information on cases that her group tries to solve.It s just as corny as it sounds It getspedestrian Amanda goes to a party that is raided by the police and she manages to hide out in a carton Indiana s rich boyfriend suffers from erectile dysfunction Indiana has the ability to heal by her mere presence It just goes on and on Nothing is realistic Everything makes you roll your eyes Will it ever get better No It just goes from one cliche to another Stop it.This book should never have published It is certainly not up to Allende s standards and I am not sure it would pass a college composition class It s so very sad Please don t waste your time with it You ll be as disappointed as I was So Many Descriptions Of People Have we not heard of show don t tell It was like, Indiana is a reiki healer Amanda is a geeky teenager Ryan is an ex navy SEAL Michael is a painter Carmen is a psychic with like, a two page description of what they do and what they look like and who they date and what they read and what scars they have and where they live and who they re related to and what s their job and their pets and etc and etc and etc omg I forgot what all the names were but you So Many Descriptions Of People Have we not heard
