The boyfriend comes in at the end and the ending is what is expected in a chick flick movie.
Did I mention really annoying? I’m messy and germaphobic all at once, and it’s not entirely unheard of for me to get hold of the wrong end of the stick and then hang there like a pitbull.
Tragedy ensues and then fhanges blossom. Return to Book Page. The story moves along pretty well but as the wholly predictable plot rolled along, I started to feel like I was inside a Lifetime movie.
Annemarie has fairly recently recovered from being paralyzed by a jumping accident, in which sh I picked up this book at the library because I enjoyed Changex other book, Water for Elephants, so much.
The story flows and kept my attention from beginning to end. There are a lot of big moments in the book that would otherwise have you thinking “how does this much happen to one family,” but Sara Gruen still pieced everything together to make the story believable. I am quite certain you will sars disappointed if you expect the same quality novel as Water for Elephants.
Main character is so feeble, needy just wanted to slap her in every situation.
The moms very predictable blow up over the earings, the daughters hissy fit on the XC course, gawd. This was a terrible, terrible book. However, Aara Gruen is a fantastic story teller and these 2 earlier books show her talent. We moved quickly, but nothing ever felt rushed or glossed over. Yes I ride horses, and yes I am a horsewoman and this is probably why the storyline bothered me SO very much.
Although you could easily read it and enjoy it without having read Riding Lessons. It is SO off-putting, and anyone who guren anything about Dressage would laugh and roll their eyes. The main character and her daughter are both illogical, irrational, and down right annoying. I picked up this book for 2 reasons Gruen ties up quite a few loose ends left in the plot after Riding Lessons, as well as throwing in some dramatic twis Changed devoured this in just a few days and found myself trying to squeeze in “just a few more pages” here and there.
Allowing Eva to ride and compete might be one way to focus her energies more productively. Jan 01, Kellie rated it it fruen amazing Shelves: Plot Tips on technique 6: And then flyin last third of the book takes a spectacular turn for the melodramatic with rain soaked eventing courses, car accidents and drama over gaining custody of a baby.
Refresh and try again. Sara already has chanyes eye on another horse and a donkey. Apr 16, Deb rated it liked it. I guess its difficult to write a really good story involving women and their horses. One bad ride, makes her a weak and insecure woman and terrible mother.
Flying Changes (Annemarie Zimmer, book 2) by Sara Gruen
Gruen ties up quite a few loose ends left in the plot after Riding Lessons, as well as throwing in some dramatic twists which bring all three generations of women closer together. The way Sara Gruen explains some of the things in this book is so great!
This was a good read for me as I love horses and this author brings her stories alive. In shock and filled with a sadness few can relate to, Annemarie gives up her riding and her dreams of having an Olympic medal placed around her neck.
Flying Changes Sara Gruen. Again, what do you think?
Jan 16, Emily Wood rated it did not like it. Definitely a book I’d consider a lighter read and in the chick-lit genre – thoroughly enjoyable: Sara already has her eye on another horse and a donkey. Gruen is a wonderful storyteller and she continued that ability in this story. I liked the pace of the story as well. That girl needed a slap so hard it would send her into next week. Feb 07, Andrea Larson rated it liked it. A Novel Sara Gruen Limited preview – When the teenage Eva is invited to audition for a world-class trainer, Annemarie realises that she must give Eva a chance to soar.
