  3. Can you just imagine Tania's anxiety level here??? For all she knows, any time he picks up a newspaper he's likely to see his name listed as "wanted". It's got to be eating her up inside...


    (BTW, can you be more specific about where you are in the book? I'm about halfway through, so I'm trying to be SUPER CAREFUL about not accidentally posting spoilers in my comments here. How about a chapter/section title? I'm always trying to guess which "%" you're talking about, but I don't want to make a mistake. Math is NOT my strong suit! lol)

  4. I'm nearing the end, and I about had a panic attack last night as I was reading. I literally felt sick to my stomach (I swear I'm not a drama queen!), but had to push through the really bad parts despite feeling like I was going to throw up.

    I'm sure those of you who have finished know the part I'm referring to here.

  5. Oh, Rochelle, don't say that....that's how I felt the ENTIRE time during T&A! :-(

  7. Hildy,
    I think you mean "therapy session".

  9. I am on page 489, which I believe is one of the throw up areas referred to above. I was almost late leaving for work today trying to get some RESOLUTION, but had to leave. I feel AWFUL.

    You just have to know that with people who are sooooooo passionate and who have been through such devestation and loss, their life is never going to be peaceful.

  11. I can't believe how many times I have cried and then just want to but the book down and yet it doesn't happen. I have 150 pages left and can't wait to chat with you laides. I have to give it to Paullina, she is a fabulous story teller. Jen

  13. What a difference a day makes. I was away from the computer yesterday and when I returned this morning I had so much to catch up on with the blog. I love it.

    I remember when I was done reading and TSG and dared to finally go out and see what others were saying I was amazed how many people gave a bad review of TSG saying it was not as good as the first two books. I disagreed..I thought it was better than T&A though my heart always belongs to TBH because that is where it all started and that is where we have Lazarevo.

    I am doing my second read through of TBH (prompted by Carol's blog) but I think I woudl not mind listening to them on audio books I need to see if they are even available and who narrates. I 'd love to hear the Russian accents (like Davina Porter does for Scottish accents in the Outlander series on audio).

  14. I, too, thought TSG was better than T and A but it was a very painful journey. I wish I could say more to those who are finishing, to help ease your minds. Unfortunately we'll have to wait until Carol is finished. I can't wait to read the rest of her thoughts about the book.

    I do remember being emotionally exhausted but then I reread it immediately. It was very different upon second read. I understood Alexander much better the second time through.

  15. I thought TSG was the hardest of the books to get through. It was so REAL. Not that their other experiences weren't horrific but none of us can really relate to them but we can relate more to being a regular old married couple in the USA and what kinds of issues you go through over the years. She definitely is a wonderful storyteller.

    Carol, I'll be curious to see where you rank these amongst your other books that you love. The are a close 2nd to Outlander for me and Outlander is pretty much tied with Harry Potter. I don't think I could chose. :)
