    1. If you liked THE LIFE OF PI, you might like this book I didn t, and I wasn t real fond of this one by the time I got to the end of it If that s a spoiler, so be it This book actually made me mad.Okay, so this book is about a family of women with the sight, who can read a person s future through lace Except there s very little actual lace reading that goes on in the book There s a fair bit of lace making, but no reading The heroine has been estranged from her relatives, living on the opposite coa [...]


    2. The concept gets an A, the execution gets a C The book is just a mess In serious need of editing and rearrangement I was often confused because it was hard to tell reality from dreams from hallucinations from delusions from memories There were a lot of good ideas, but so many of them were totally unnecessary and others weren t fully fleshed out The author should have saved some of those ideas for other stories and developed them further and maybe she will As the book went on, the author seemed t [...]


    3. I m biased in regards to this book, because this October, I ll be traveling to the North Shore and Salem for my honeymoon So I was predisposed to enjoy the admittedly captivating descriptions of a city poised between the past and the heavily marketed, witch industry based future But for everything wonderful about this book, there were other things that were muddy Although the book warns the reader from literally the very beginning that we ll be seeing things through the eyes of someone who lies [...]


    4. Reading this book is like falling asleep in a moderately interesting class A moment flutters by that briefly captures your imagination, but mainly things are just droning along Droning, that is, until the last moment when the teacher starts ranting and throwing things Wow I m awake, I m awake what s happening This book has one of those crazy twist endings that just doesn t make sense, and you suspect that you missed something since you were, after all, practically asleep But you didn t It s just [...]


    5. Ever found yourself finishing a book out of obligation, to the book itself That vague but relentless guilt that settles in when you have figured out exactly where this story is going and where it will wind up, but you started the book, so you really ought to finish it Go to your favorite bookseller and pick up Brunonia Barry s The Lace Reader today Now.First, to give props where props are due, I apologize, Ms Barry I thought I had it all figured out I loved Towner, finding a woman I would love t [...]


    6. This book didn t quite live up to my expectations for it but overall, I thought it was okay That makes me a little sad because there were several elements to this book that seemed like they would be wildly interesting when they were all mixed together in the same book and I was hoping to really love it A quick rundown of the things that happened include the mysterious death of Eva Whitney, suicide, the disappearance of a young woman, mental illness, sexual abuse, rape, witchcraft, fortune tellin [...]


    7. Towner Whitney is forced to return to Salem MA, after an absence of almost 15 years, when her Great Aunt Eva goes missing Once she is back in Salem Towner soon finds out that she will need to confront the ghosts of her past in order to move on into her future Through a series of flashbacks and memories the reader finds out that the Whitney family is not quite what they seem The story is filled with a cast of eccentric characters from Towner s mother May who refuses to step a foot off the island [...]


    8. I liked this book at first because of the visual setting of Salem and Marblehead, the unusual dysfunctional family, and the mystery of the aunt s death As the story progresses it just gets tangled in its own web or lace as it were, a story in search of a flashy ending which is provided but somehow unsatisfying.


    9. Just found this while rummaging through my shelves and realized I have to change the rating Many books later, I now realize this can t possibly be than two stars The most cliche ridden and sad little book ever Whiny and ditzy main character Eye rolling romance Almost no lace reading magic Just NO.


    10. My biggest issue with this book was the switching of points of view I don t feel that it added all that much to the story, except to leave us all the confused by the end This story would have best been told completely in 3rd person, saving us the momentary pull out of the story when we get to a new chapter and realize that this isn t Towner s point of view In the end, it feels as though the only reason for the chapters in Towner s pov were solely to give us the effect of confusion at the end, w [...]


    11. There were things I definitely liked about this book, the psychology for one and the visual of Salem, MA for another, but the organization of the book bothered me Over a hundred pages into it, Barry shifts POVs and even then jumps around a bit between perspectives Twice, she uses documents to tell her story, which is a great literary technique, but again they come late in the book and the second one takes up sixty pages It was a little jarring ironically, those sixty pages were my favorite part [...]


    12. When I first saw this book cover, I had a mental Will Smith moment Awwww, hell no I thought it was the same as those novels centered around knitting or quilting but that lace was the new vehicle Boy, was I wrong It s about so much than lace reading a kind of fortune telling based on the reading of lace , but I m not here to plot summarize I ll say what I always say when I think a story is full of excellent twists Be careful which reviews you read I loved, loved, loved this story It s not some p [...]


    13. I ve read a lot of mixed reviews of The Lace Reader and against my better judgment, tried it out anyway Mystery, cool psychic powers which involve reading fortune through a piece of lace, New England setting Salem, MA even despite all of this, this novel was a chore The audio version barely kept me entertained on my way to work Halfway through I was tempted to chuck it, but then remembered how terribly behind I am in the yearly challenge So, I did something I never, ever do and read some reviews [...]


    14. This spellbinding story is primarily told by Towner Whitney,Brunonia Barry s self confessed unreliable narrator My name is Towner Whitney No, that s not exactly true My real first name is Sophya Never believe me I lie all the time However, the first person point of view shifts to a third person adding to the mysterious narrative.Set in Salem, Massachusetts, the novel interlaces historic references with modern allusions that waver between somber and glib, creating an evocative, unpredictable atmo [...]


    15. I really liked this book I liked the combination of mystery, suspense, romance, family, psychology It really grabbed my attention at the beginning and kept it all the way through There were surprises I didn t see coming and now I want to go back and read it again with that perspective It is provacative and challenging in many respects, so be prepared for that It isn t an easy, entertaining read but one that makes you think, hypothesize, and wonder I enjoyed it a lot.



    16. The story begins with the central character, Towner Whitney, admitting she s a liar with memory loss issues so you really don t know what to believe and after a while you don t much care Eventually after plodding through 150 pages of mostly nothing a mystery plot is introduced This book is interminable It s structured in an awkward manner keeps jumping back and forth leading the reader down blind alleys with lots of scenes going nowhere and serving no purpose to the storyline There were so many [...]


    17. This book wasn t as good as I thought it would be, given all the press it s been getting I mean, come on already I hear about it all the time I do think it s pretty amazing how this self published author has now signed with HarperCollins or some other big publisherbut about the book It was a pretty good story with lots of plot twists and an interesting theme exploring truth and reality, but the surprise ending is dumped on you like a ton of bricks, and besides, I had already figured it out Seems [...]


    18. I will say this is an interesting concept with a plot twist that left me bewildered at the end It gets a three star rating for the ending To clarify it is not because I disliked the ending The lower rating is simply due to the fact that such a climactic turn of events should seemingly be explored a bit deeper The acceptance of it all without too much fanfare was just too unbelievable to allow I see there is a sequel and I will probably read it because I did like the characters I loved the New En [...]


    19. My boss forced me to read this, and I m really glad she did A fabulously unreliable narrator leads to a lovely twist at the end And Barry s descriptions of Salem, Mass are so spot on that anyone who has ever toured there even once will recognize certain landmarks.


    20. I read this when it was first published in 2008 but decided to read it again when one of my book clubs picked it for our October 2014 selection The story takes place in Salem, MA, and centers around an old family of women who are lace readers able to see the future in pieces of Ipswich lace The main character, Towner Whitney, is summoned back to Salem from her life in California when the body of her Great Aunt Eva is found in the ocean Returning home sets in motion again all the dysfunctional fa [...]


    21. At the end of a perfect summer day when the setting sun casts that net of skin kissing balmy warmth over the land, if you re lucky enough to be driving down a traffic less country backroad with all the windows open or just looking out the window of a city bus at that light hitting the sides of buildings at new and interesting angles, illuminating parts of them you rarely get to see you know how sometimes it actually feels like you re on drugs This book lulls you into exactly that pleasant twilit [...]


    22. I m always interested in the history of Salem and I wasn t familiar with lace readers so I thought this would be a intriguing read.There was a lot of talk about the characters being readers but other than the blurb at the beginning of each chapter, there was very little knowledge imparted.This was a murder mystery at heart with some history thrown in It was a jumbled mess and in my opinion would have benefitted from a total rewrite I struggled to engage with the characters so the reading dragged [...]


    23. Salem, Massachusetts is an unusual town And the Whitneys are the most unusual family in Salem Their family roots in Salem go back hundreds of years They fit right in with the eccentric witches, most of the Whitney women have the ability to sense bits of people s thoughts and see glimpses of the future when they look through a piece of lace Towner Whitney is in her early thirties and she has just returned to Salem from her self imposed exile in California because her beloved Great Aunt Eva has di [...]


    24. I wanted to read The Lace Reader because it is set in Salem, Massachusetts, and it s about a family of women with the gift of reading fortunes in lace Each chapter starts with a little excepts from The Lace Reader s Guide about how to make or read lace as we follow Towner Whitney s return to Salem after a decade s absense following the suicide of her twin sister.Towner returns when her great aunt Eva, a gifted lace reader, goes missing Towner has the gift, too, as well as hallucinations and visi [...]


    25. Towner Whitney doesn t remember why she left Salem all those years ago, when her name was still Sophya Accordingto her, she s crazy Indeed, in Salem, the Whitneys are known as quirky Especially Towner s great aunt Eva, who runs a tearoom and is a renowned lace reader Lace reading is a form of fortune telling a gift that most Whitney women have, to an excent But Towner is back now Her great aunt Eva is missing.Forced to confront the memories she s suppressed all those years ago and faced with the [...]


    26. There were a couple of things that drew me to this book the idea of lace reading as a way of prophecy or fortune telling of sorts, the setting of Salem and the islands nearby, a hint at mystery and supernatural things But I should have been warned off by two things First the friend who gave this to me gave it a lukewarm recommendation, and second, the author comes flat out and tells us in the beginning that the narrator should not be trusted I guess if there had been of the lace reading, and le [...]


    27. This book is being highly acclaimed by just about everyone who has read it I will be no exception.This is an excellent read and importantly it is well written The theme and story of the book will be of interest to women than to men, although I can honestly say that I thoroughly enjoyed the book.The setting is Salem, Massachusetts you remember where they had the Witch Trials in the 1600 s Salem is still smothered in the mystic of the occult Some inhabitants are because they believe in the occul [...]


    28. I m not sure how to review this book It was a ride sometimes confusing and bumpy At other times it was mezmerising I loved the characters Each had unique but complex personalities The book begins with Towner Whitney stating that she is crazy and that she lies She returns to Salem when she learns that her great aunt is missing In no time, she is immersed in the confusing family dynamics that surrounded her as a child To me, the story is about perceptions, from the lace readings the Whitney women [...]


    29. So I was skeptical about this book at first After the hype of the NPR interview, the beginning wasn t what I expected even after Barry read the first page on the radio I think it took about 40 pages to get into the book, until dead relatives started talking to the main character, Towner The book then flows into an expression of her psychopathology psychic ability That s when the book started to give that sensation of perspective shifting, of everything being slightly off kilter That lasted until [...]
