recommended this novel to me, saying she read it in one sitting and absolutely loved it I wouldn t say this is a bad book, but it s most certainly not my book Look at the following quotes Love is the one thing on which you should never compromise And There will be another sky, my love, just you wait Now, if these are the kind of quotes that make you swoon and want to pick up a book immediately then you might very well enjoy The Life List You might find this novel heart warming and touching, see it as an emotional and maybe even thought provoking journey of self discovery It will serve as a reminder that it s never too late to live life the way you always dreamed, to take a leap of faith even when your goals seem unobtainable And that really is a beautiful message.Except I couldn t appreciate any of it because I was too busy rolling my eyes Call me cold hearted but if there is one thing I hate it is cheesiness And this novel is about as cheesy as it gets The story follows 34 year old Brett Bohlinger who seemingly has the perfect life She has a great job at her mother s multimillion dollar company, lives together with her gorgeous boyfriend in an expensive apartment in the best part of town and has all the designer clothes anyone could wish for But when her mother, Elizabeth, dies of cancer, Brett is devastated and her entire world is turned upside down Instead of simply inheriting her money the way her brothers do and getting the role of CEO at her mother s company, Brett must fulfill the life list she wrote when she was fourteen Only if she manages to complete all the goals on the list within a year will Brett receive her inheritance Some of the goals on the list are quite easily achieved, e.g get a dog While others aredifficult and impactful, e.g fall in love, have a baby I guess I should have known better I should have known from the description that this book wouldn t appeal to me But it came so highly recommended that I wanted to give it a try anyway.The concept of the novel is an overused one and unfortunately Lori Nelson Spielman didn t make it fresh or new in any way This didn t really bother me that much however my problem was the idea that a human being can dictate another person s life from beyond the grave I understand what the author was going for Brett had such a great relationship with her mother that she knew her better than Brett knows herself But does that give Elizabeth the right to practically force her daughter to do something she essentially doesn t want to do To guilt trip her into leading a better life I don t think so Sure, it may very well make Brett happier but the woman is 34 for goodness sake Should she not be able to choose her own path And how is it that that a grown woman is still so dependent on her mother This last question leads me to my next point Brett s character Brett has the emotional maturity of a fourteen year old Which is ironic since she has fulfill goals she decided on when she was fourteen She is also the definition of a doormat She lets everyone walk all over her and has no spunk, no wit and seemingly not a lot of intelligence She constantly complains about how she doesn t want to follow the life list but doesn t even try to do anything to change the situation Throughout the story, Brett remained the obedient daughter with no backbone Who needs character development, right And no, giving away possessions and then claiming to have become less materialistic doesn t count if your character doesn t actually change Brett is basically tasked to analyze her life and change the things that don t make her happy But of course we can t have the readers thinking Brett is motivated by money So the author makes it clear on every page that Brett s motives are completely selfless, that she only does this to appease her mother There is no possible way Brett could be motivated by money because she helps the poor and teaches underprivileged children A goody two shoes if ever I saw one As for the other characters in the novel, they were all astonishingly flat and only seemed to be plot devices to pull the story along Brett s mother appears as a goddess that could do no wrong Andrew is the idiot boyfriend who only wants Brett s money Herbert is the perfect man that has no flaws except that he is, well, boring The list goes on Oh and for all those of you who thought love triangles and other geometric love shapes were a thing restricted to YA books, think again This novel contains an actual love pentagon LOL And yes, it s as annoying as it sounds Spielman s writing style was quite enjoyable and she did a good job of making the book engaging or as engaging as it could be with characters like that But ultimately, I don t appreciate when authors set out with an agenda to tug at my heartstrings I don t like it when they try to hit me over the head with their important message It makes me feel manipulated, in a bad way Perhaps this was what I disliked most about the book.So, do I recommend The Life List No, I can t say that I would If you want to a good adult contemporary romance pick up Me Before You instead [[ Free Epub ]] ⇰ Morgen kommt ein

that that book will be cherished on their bookshelf like an old photograph to be looked at, revisited, and thought of with fond memories a book that becomes a valued possession that just could never be let go The Life List is just that sort of special novel, that in all the books I ve read this year, a few of which I ve already forgotten, it stands out among the rest I will remember it and think fondly of the story and recommend it to others with great enthusiasm as an adventure that all lovers of literature should enjoy My first recommendation, of course, will be to my mother.This book is a lovely story about the decisions we make in life, our search for happiness, and what really matters in the end The leading character Brett Bohlinger is a successful executive at her mother s booming cosmetic business She has an apartment in a coveted area in town, a successful boyfriend who is ambitious and hot enough to cause whiplash in women he walks by, and items that would make the Joneses jealous From afar, Brett has the perfect life When her mother suddenly becomes sick and passes away, Brett is dealt a devastating blow The one parent who truly loved her, the person who she could count on to smooth out life s difficulties, answer any question and fix any problem is torn away from her in a heartbeat Brett s determined to make her mother proud as the new CEO of the family company and this position fills her with a mixture of motivation and dread Taking over the CEO will involve her being the boss of her ambitious, perfect sister in law, running a multi million dollar company, and fitting in a position which she doesn t have the confidence in her ability to succeed Then Brett is dealt the second biggest blow of her life when the will is read Instead of the inheritance and company position she anticipates, she s left with a requirement to complete a life list she wrote when she was 14 and she has one year to complete all the items Brett stares at the list Buy a horse, have a baby or two, become a teacher, perform on stage, have a relationship with her father Her mom can t be serious A horse in the city A relationship with her father who has already died and was cold and distant to Brett as a child A baby, or two in a year As Brett s world flips upside down she realizes that sometimes not having what you thought you wanted like the CEO position or the designer watch can actually be a blessing As she completes the list, her life focus changes and she finds things that bring her joy that she would have never expected Happiness isn t something you strive to achieve It s not impressing people who are difficult to please It s not something you can buy As she completes each item, she gains ground on finding the hopeful optimistic girl she used to be and moves past the fearful woman who is settling and is afraid of change In her will, her mother left her the greatest gift a mother could give a roadmap, long abandoned, to the simpler things in life which will bring the greatest happiness She left her daughter a final lesson, a lesson on how to follow her own dreams and not to compromise This novel makes me want to tackle something I m afraid of and reflect back on abandoned dreams It reminds me that even if you ve traveled a long way down road, 30 years down that road, that if you realize it s going in the wrong direction you can always turn around or forge a new path somewhere else It is not to late to live the life you were meant to live The life that feels real and brings inspiration and passion It shows us that we have the strength all along to do what brings us the greatest joy It s a testimony not to compromise on love, friendship, and family, and that if you find that you re lonely despite being surrounded by others then maybe it s the wrong people you are surrounded by The book is about first impressions and lasting impressions It s about forgiveness, choices, love, and taking the leap of faith even if you can t yet see where you ll land It s an amazing book that I would love to see turned into a movie, and a book that I think everyone who enjoy s women s literature should read Update I also listened to the audio version The narration on this book was enjoyable and I loved hearing this story for a second time Rebecca Gibel does an excellent job portraying Brett I would definitely recommend this novel both in paper back and audio insert big sigh What to write about this book I wanted to like it I did I was curious enough to finish it, but barely If I had been reading instead of listening, I know I would have turned to the back and read the last chapter when I was about a 1 4 of the way in What s wrong with this book The idea of a life list is fun, and very current just search it on Pinterest , but certainly not very original Spielman s similes are pretty good, but are so frequent that they become annoying insert big sigh What to write about this book I wanted to

frequent that they become annoying Brett is such a ninny and so frequently ridiculous that I found myself muttering, Idiot an awful lot Apparently, I need a narrator who is admirable and at least a little spunky A 34 year old woman allows her dead mother to make her choices and direct her life from beyond the grave The book is just so darn predictable I knew after their first glimpse of each other exactly who Brett would end up with The real question is, Why did I waste so much time reading this book when I already knew the ending Perhaps worst of all, and that s saying a lot when you consider the ridiculous things we are supposed to just take for granted, Brett never really changed Yes, I know, you are supposed to feel like she has changed because she became a mother But really, she was as much a ninny at the end of the book as she was at the start.If it were a movie, I d leave 20 minutes in and ask for my money back The Life List was slightly better written, but just as formulaic, as the teen romance books I read when I was about 13 UGH Ahh, this book was so adorable I was very emotional throughout the book I cried and laughed I felt just about every emotion there was to feel with this book A must read A really cute loveable read if you want a sincere life goal like this women.No matter how we plan things, you never know what s around the corner. I just read a column in the Sunday NYT by Charles McGrath that completely explains why I finished this book despite the fact that the whole time I couldn t believe how bad the writing was That s the problem with fiction or the charm, if you want Even mediocre plots have a way of sinking their hooks into you, until you find yourself concerned for the fates of characters who aren t even fully convincing As a real person Brett Bohlinger made a lot of mistaken assumptions about people and beh I just read a column in the Sunday NYT by Charles McGrath that completely explains why I finished this book despite the fact that the whole time I couldn t believe how bad the writing was That s the problem with fiction or the charm, if you want Even mediocre plots have a way of sinking their hooks into you, until you find yourself concerned for the fates of characters who aren t even fully convincing As a real person Brett Bohlinger made a lot of mistaken assumptions about people and behaviour She acted like a child I m not sure we saw any growth in her I wanted to know what happened but thought if you knew Brett in person she would just be irritating Brett a woman with a male name she constantly finds herself explaining is devastated when her mother passes away However, the real shock comes for her with the reading of her mother s will She is to complete a list of tasks in order to be eligible for her inheritance.This book was quite heart warming, while Brett struggles with grief and coming to terms with the conditions in her mother s will But will the tasks force Brett to actually start to live her own life This was heading for 4 stars Brett a woman with a male name she constantly finds herself explaining is devastated when her mother passes away However, the real shock comes for her with the reading of her mother s will She is to complete a list of tasks in order to be eligible for her inheritance.This book was quite heart warming, while Brett struggles with grief and coming to terms with the conditions in her mother s will But will the tasks force Brett to actually start to live her own life This was heading for 4 stars from me, but the way the end of the book wrapped up was disappointing and very quick, so only 3 stars now I truly loved this book From the first page to the last page It was like a breath of fresh air Didn t want it to end and I kept reading and reading not wanting to put it down Hard to believe this is the authors debut book I will definitely be waiting patiently for her next book Highly recommend Loved it Fiction This book doesn t come out until summer 2013 but I was lucky enough to get an early copy Chick Lit at it s best I devoured this one A great heroine, a strange will, a seemingly impossible quest The book has real heart.
