Official Review: Sister Carrie by William H. Coles

Please use this sub-forum to discuss any fiction books or series that do not fit into one of the other categories. If the fiction book fits into one the other categories, please use that category instead.
Forum rules
While in the forum's younger and less active days this used to be the one and only forum for "reviews and discussions about specific books", this is now just the subforum "other fiction" in a more well-organized "reviews and discussions about specific books" section with subforums for each genre. Check it out! :) Remember, the forums in the reviews section (including this forum) are for posting about a single book or series in topic, and the topic title should include the book's title. If you are creating a new topic, please try to post it in one of the other genres rather than posting it here in the "other fiction" section. This is only for books that do not fit in any of the other genre categories we have listed.

You caught my attention! I must read the story to know how unpredictable it is. Thanks!
That's what I'm sayin'! Unpredictability for a book---yes, please! :)

I can very much relate to that feeling. Sometimes I even wonder if I understand myself. Great review though. Seems like a great read despite the typos

I love books with multiple storylines and think I would enjoy this. It sounds especially interesting because the two story lines are sisters.

I love your theme for the book--"unpredictable". It was that exact word in the the previous paragraph before you mentioned the theme that made me want to pick this book out! I just finished a William H. Coles book and did not find it to be one an enjoyable read. However, this one may help change my overarching opinion of his last work I read. I like short with substance.. as well as some mystery and sexual content :) Thanks for the review!

I love the fact that you say the story has unpredictable ending. This means that the readers are left to think, speculate and imagine which is good for the their creative thinking as well as indulgence in the author's work.
