What was your favorite scene in the book?

Post by Amagine » 01 Nov 2017, 23:10

There were a lot of impressive and memorable scenes in this book. Which part was your favorite?

I found humor in every scene where Jennifer was trying to hide her superior intellect from everyone but kept slipping up and revealed more than she should. They would all just look at her dumbfounded and in awe.

I found humor in that as well. I loved it when she did the IQ test in French and floored the examiner.
Life without a good book is something the CatInTheHat cannot imagine.


Grateful to get the opportunity to explore new books with those in the OBC.

The IQ test was a good one. I also enjoyed the fishing expeditions with Alice.

I also agree the IQ test was hilarious. I liked the part where a dolphin saved Jennifer's life.

Jennifer's attempt to hide her superior wit did it for me. It was hilarious too.

I loved the moments where she encountered that her likeness was known in the 21st century and the strange coincidence between the two Jennifers lives and how they intersected.

I would say that the book was doing well until Jennifer was rescued. From that point, the story became one unbelievable scene after another. All the problems were solved too easily. She was a superhero with no known weakness. Too unrealistic for me.

I agree, and it’s hard to imagine nobody being curious about how easily the problems were being solved. I would think someone would at least get curious enough to see what could be uncovered about Jennifer’s forgotten past.

My favorite scene in the book was when she met Jules and Eva. She had finally found a home away from home and someone that would try to help her whether she could remember who she was or not.

That was a refreshing scene. They were very accepting.

A little bit of humour is always refreshing :)
