"Nicole Kidman To Star In & Produce Series Adaptation Of Janelle Brown’s ‘Pretty Things’ For Amazon With Reed Morano Attached To Direct". This book is the perfect choice for a series. Developing the characters over many hours will help in their portrayal. The location, Lake Tahoe, is great. The ending will also be exciting. I enjoyed the surprises and twists, not really knowing how it would all turn out. I found myself switching sides frequently, not certain as to who to root for as they exposed their flaws. They dynamic between mother and child is an underlying theme which propels the women into their choices and finally, the action they ultimately take.
I picked this book on seeing that it was one of Amazon's top books of the year and it was a worthy choice. The story has good twists and surprises and kept me guessing. Scenic descriptions of Lake Tahoe, the claustrophobic ancestral home, the obsession with social media esp. Instagram, art and antiques, the vividly etched characters make for a great read.
I enjoyed the final 3 chapters of this book more than the rest of the book. The story moves at a steady pace with regular twists. There would be a few instances where you would have a smile at the smart nuances. Overall a good book for seasoned readers. May not be the right choice for new bookworms.
Use for lockdown reading. Started out very interesting but became rather predictable and the twists were blatantly obvious and poorly thought out. Ending was kind of a cop out too. Fun enough read though.
