The Golden Mean - In which The Extraordinary Correspondence of Griffin and Sabine concludes

Par Nick Bantock, Chronicle Books, Griffin and Sabine 3

«"Sabine, I was sure I understood. Yet you were not here when I returned and there was no sign that you ever had been here.... Today comes your card saying you were in this house for three days after my return. I am bewildered. I need you badly. -Griffin"
In this final volume of the phenomenal, best-selling trilogy begun with Griffin & Sabine and continued in Sabine's Notebook, the mystery of the two artists deepens, their questions grow more urgent. New obstacles (including a sinister intruder) test the tenacity of their passion, and in each letter or postcard, painting and prose are even more richly intertwined. Destined to be the most sought after novel of the year, The Golden Mean builds toward a powerful conclusion that will satisfy the millions of readers already entranced by the spirited, imaginative, enigmatic union of Griffin and Sabine.»

Something borrowed

Par Emily Giffin, St-Martin's Press, Rachel et Darcy 1

«Something Borrowed tells the story of Rachel, a young attorney living and working in Manhattan. Rachel has always been the consummate good girl---until her thirtieth birthday, when her best friend, Darcy, throws her a party. That night, after too many drinks, Rachel ends up in bed with Darcy's fiancé. Although she wakes up determined to put the one-night fling behind her, Rachel is horrified to discover that she has genuine feelings for the one guy she should run from. As the September wedding date nears, Rachel knows she has to make a choice. In doing so, she discovers that the lines between right and wrong can be blurry, endings aren't always neat, and sometimes you have to risk all to win true happiness.»

Plaisir coupable que ce livre «de fille»... à lire, bien à l'abri des regards scrutateurs, en rêvant au prince charmant... Cela dit, ce délectable ton «rose bonbon» est tout à fait bien tourné, à l'aide de la plume vive et lucide de Giffin... Je ne suis pas certaine que la version française soit aussi agréable à lire toutefois; elle regorge sûrement d'une tonne d'expressions franchouillardes totalement inappropriées et semées à outrance dans cette intrigue pourtant remplie de ce New York qu'on adore... So, a «must read», but in English for those who can...
