attention There are a number of twists and turns in the story which made it interesting to read Body Surfing will be particularly enjoyed by anyone who loves the beach The main characters enjoy body surfing for enjoyment The beach is my favorite place to be and it was obvious to me in reading this book that Anita Shreve shares my love for the ocean and the beach The author describes the beach so well I felt like I was right there each time I picked up the book.This book would be a great beach read or a good read on a cold day when you long for the beach I have enjoyed all the other books I have read by Anita Shreve I like her style of writing I have read Eden Close , The Pilot s Wife and Light on Snow I look forward to reading another book by this fine author Why do I keep reading Anita

reading my Shreve books, rating them just 3 stars, asking myself why , and then rejoicing in the fact that I m an adult now I can read what I choose and enjoy it without having to analyze it on a term paper I wasn t expecting much from this book, and was pleasantly surprised during the first third Anita Shreve writes with skill, although I could have done without quite as much description of what people are wearing especially since they change their clothes at least twice a day But she captures the scene of a WASPy New England family summering on the coast of New Hampshire perfectly return But

scene of a WASPy New England family summering on the coast of New Hampshire perfectly return But by the last third, I started wondering whether she knew quite where she was trying to go with the development of Sydney and the course of her life, and the end felt a bit loose return I often find it difficult to enjoy books that are so focused on the emotions of their characters, because they seem somewhat false to me, but that is one problem I did not encounter here Shreve nails the emotions in every situation, for every character, and it all feels just right I didn t love the plot and felt the end was weak, but all the same this was an enjoyable read, and not as light as I had expected Warning Stay out of the water It s not safe to go Body Surfing I ve read several Anita Shreve books Fortune s Rocks, Pilot s Wife, The Last Time They Met none of which I call stellar but all much better than this one.Sydner Sklar finds herself once widowed and once divorced in her late twenties She drops out of grad school and takes a summer job as a live in tutor for the Edwards family who live on the idyllic New Hampshire shore And who live in the same house that pops up in many Shreve Warning Stay out of the water It s not safe to go Body Surfing I ve read several Anita Shreve books Fortune s Rocks, Pilot s Wife, The Last Time They Met none of which I call stellar but all much better than this one.Sydner Sklar finds herself once widowed and once divorced in her late twenties She drops out of grad school and takes a summer job as a live in tutor for the Edwards family who live on the idyllic New Hampshire shore And who live in the same house that pops up in many Shreve books While tutoring 18 year old Julie, Sydney aimlessly drifts into the vortex of this dysfunctional family Right out of Harlequin, she is attracted to both of the older brothers Ben and Jeff, she is shunned by their cold, resentful mother, and she adores the noble father.Warning I am about to spoil the plot, if you can actually call it a plot.Over one fateful night, our heroine ends up in a romance with Jeff which drives a wedge between the brothers Despite a less than compelling relationship, Sydney and Jeff move in together and get engaged Eleven months later, Jeff dumps her at the altar when he admits to himself and to her that the reason he is with her is because he didn t want his brother Ben to have her As it turns out, this isn t the first time Jeff has pulled such a stunt in competition with his brother Jeff heads off to Africa Sydney loafs around Boston to recover from the shock She ends up back at the beach several years later and runs into Ben and they end up body surfing naked at night How stupid.Why am I bothering to write so much about a book I disliked so Good question I ll eek a fewwords on my 3 biggest gripes.1 The writing style The first 18 pages is mostly incomplete sentences I cannot figure out why this writer chose that style It was hard to immerse myself in the story when it felt like I was skimming along the tops of choppy waves in a high powered speed boat Not a fun ride.2 Sydney was milk toast She was a completely bland character that I didn t understand, like, relate to, or even want to spend time with.3 Outlandish plot lines There are great works of fiction with completely implausible plot lines This is not one of them She ends up naked on the beach with the brother of the man who left her at the altar Whatever Rating 1 out of 5 stars Why did I read past the first chapter
