    Paperbackã Cartwheel Kindle æ cartwheel book, Cartwheel PDFEPUBThis book is not a compelling read I feel like the author is too busy showing me she is smartperhaps like Lily instead of attempting to involve me in the story I don't like that At AllProving to readers that you have an extensive and yet overblown vocabulary with which you are insistent on impressing them isn't good writing in

    Paperbackã Cartwheel Kindle æ cartwheel book, Cartwheel PDFEPUBAlthough there's been discussion that this novel is based on the Amanda Knox story it is accurate to say that it is inspired by it and I think that if you go into it with that approach you won't be comparing for authenticity DuBois has taken many liberties with the familiar Knox chronicle so that it is a decidedly different story It reads like a mosaic of a family and a haunting labyrinth of mirrorsAmerican exchange student Lily Hayes on the verge of 21 travels to Buenos

    Paperbackã Cartwheel Kindle æ cartwheel book, Cartwheel PDFEPUBThis book was supposed to be loosely based on the Amanda Knox story Loosely Change the names change the city and it was regurgitated from the news practically word for word except of course for the author's pretentious word choices throughout the book phloem ingots scherzo atavistic ungulate syllogism sybaritic dictum mirabile pentimento uotidian caesura decretory etc etc The writing is pretentious and ostentatious faint crepitation of a leaf against the window Oh dearIt is also hard to believe the author has ever really been in Buenos Aries Her descriptions are of a run down third world city and Buenos Aries is anything but that She also mentioned that it would be unsafe for a young girl

    Paperbackã Cartwheel Kindle æ cartwheel book, Cartwheel PDFEPUB“That's an applicable life lesson my boy' he'd said 'Nobody is really paying attention to you Most people don't really get this They think they must count to other people than other people count to them They can't believe the disregard could truly be mutual” ― Jennifer duBois CartwheelI had a difficult time with this one Maybe it is because I have read similiar books and not all that long ago For whatever reason I was not able to really get into this book in the way I had thought I wouldIt seems books about female friends one being accused of murdering the other are uite popular these days And The Dangerous Girls is among my all time favorites so I can see why I had heard about Cartwheel and was anxious to read it While not awful it was not the best read for me Here's whySome of the wording in this book was confusing There was this game I used to play with family and friends way back when called Dictionary Someone would look up a word that nobody knew the mean

    Paperbackã Cartwheel Kindle æ cartwheel book, Cartwheel PDFEPUB Cartwheel is very loosely based on the framework of facts from the Amanda Knox case but that doesn't mean it's a crime thriller or murder mystery It starts off as a deep dive into the psyches of a few important characters Lily Hayes the Knox alter ego Lily's father Andrew the prosecutor Eduardo and Lily's sometime boyfriend Sebastien I assumed Cartwheel would provide no definite answers I was wrong about that I think and that any conclusions the reader could draw would be based on knowing these characters very very well so I welcomed this opportunity It was fascinating for while and then seemed less so; all this character development meant the story moved at a snail's pace Plus the two characters I found most fascinating Katy and Anna never had a chance to speak for themselves and Eduardo was just unrealistic; he be

    Paperbackã Cartwheel Kindle æ cartwheel book, Cartwheel PDFEPUBSure Cartwheel will be compared to the true events in the life and trial of Amanda Knox Jennifer DuBois stated that Cartwheel is inspired by that true crime After finishing Cartwheel I decided to familiaize myself with that news story since I'd never really followed it or watched the movies based on Amanda Knox I wasn't constantly comparing the book to the real events which is definitely a plus Because I was seeing this with fresh eyes so to speak I could appreciate that Jennifer DuBois' debut novel Cartwheel means so much Lily Hayes is studying abroad in Beunos Aires when she is accused of killing her housemate Katy Kellers There's no murder weapon to suggest Lily is guilty of the crime besides cleverly placed red herrings Red herrings such as her impassive appearance following the murder bloodstained lips and an irrational cartwheel done while in police holding A few other instances are thrown in abo

    Paperbackã Cartwheel Kindle æ cartwheel book, Cartwheel PDFEPUBMy rating 25 of 5 stars ‘Although the themes of this book were loosely inspired by the story of Amanda Knox this is entirely a work of fiction None of the characters are real None of the events ever happened Nothing in the book should be read as a factual statement about real life events or people’‘Loosely inspired’ would imply that a subject was taken and adapted and molded to fit into a new version of the story Cartwheel is an echo a reflection and lacks in
