    I know several Kristin Hannah fans They tell me how good she is at writing about relationships Perhaps, but I didn t find out reading Comfort Joy because it definitely didn t pass my 50 page rule There were so many implausible things that happened in the first few chapters, I knew I wouldn t find any joy in reading the rest of the book About the whole plane crash thing Joy describes in great detail what s happening during the crash the horrible sounds, being thrashed about in the cabin I know several Kristin Hannah fans They tell me how good she is at writing about relationships Perhaps, but I didn t find out reading Comfort Joy because it definitely didn t pass my 50 page rule There were so many implausible things that happened in the first few chapters, I knew I wouldn t find any joy in reading the rest of the book About the whole plane crash thing Joy describes in great detail what s happening during the crash the horrible sounds, being thrashed about in the cabin and hitting her head, the smoke, etc After she gets out of the burning plane, she is completely dazed and confused not to mention banged up, bleeding, and soaking wet This is in the wilderness, mind you, and she just walks away from it Literally In the chaos of all the fire fighting and rescuing, she decides to get up and go on her way even though she must be in shock and has no idea where she is or how to reach civilization I don t know about you, but if I ever survive a plane crash, I m going to take advantage of an ambulance ride into town Not only does Joy make it out of the wreckage alive, she emerges with her camera around her neck No purse and only one shoe doesn t stop her from forging on When she just happens to come to The Comfort Inn, the proprietor s son checks her in without her putting down any sort of depositand lo and behold, there s a bag headed for charity in her room s closet that has clothes just her size I do not find it impossible to suspend disbelief, but this was just too much for me

    Sappy, simple, and a total waste of both hours it took to read But I repeated my mantraI love my book clubbies, I love my book clubbies and plowed through it Now onto something with multi syllabic words.

    This cannot be written by the same author who penned The Nightingale I mentally uttered this to myself throughout the entire book It was implausible in every way And the plot twist Just no That s really all I have to say at this time other than this was gifted to me by my sweet friend, Lisa I think she was surprised by this story as much as I was It was nothing close to what I expected it to be.

    I just love reading books for the holiday, some how it makes themmagical that way This was my first Christmas read for December and I have to say that I really loved it I really do enjoy Kristin Hannah s writing a lot The first book I read by her was Winter Garden Also a very enjoyable read I especially liked the characters in this book They are very well written, they are both relatable and believable I feel like I knew them all personally and I loved that There is such a great pl I just love reading books for the holiday, some how it makes themmagical that way This was my first Christmas read for December and I have to say that I really loved it I really do enjoy Kristin Hannah s writing a lot The first book I read by her was Winter Garden Also a very enjoyable read I especially liked the characters in this book They are very well written, they are both relatable and believable I feel like I knew them all personally and I loved that There is such a great plot twist in this one, and it was one that I did not expect at all Be prepared though and keep some tissues on hand because this one is a tear jerker This is one of those books that you don t want to end, and when it did, it felt like a part of my life was over I just wanted to go back and read it all againIt s a dangerous businessgoing out of your door You step into the road, and if you don t keep your feet, there s no knowing where you might be swept off to J.R.R Tolkien

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I was SO annoyed during the first half of the book, with the preposterous notion that this woman, severely concussed, walked away from a plane crash, then moved in with a guy and his son who asked NO questions about where she had come from And she s having epiphany after epiphany, and they were all so obvious My sister is all I have, my marriage wasn t that great But these are all coming from nowhere There is too little exposition about her marriage, etc.The mid book twist, wherein we disc I was SO annoyed during the first half of the book, with the preposterous notion that this woman, severely concussed, walked away from a plane crash, then moved in with a guy and his son who asked NO questions about where she had come from And she s having epiphany after epiphany, and they were all so obvious My sister is all I have, my marriage wasn t that great But these are all coming from nowhere There is too little exposition about her marriage, etc.The mid book twist, wherein we discover she d actually been in a coma, was what earned my two stars It was an interesting device, and it made me want to keep reading I didn t mind the magical aspects of it, but the ending was absurd She walks into Daniel s arms Please Withartful writing, the whole thing could have been built up so much better I actually groaned in annoyance at the ending

    When I read this last year for the first time, I couldn t believe the gigantic plot twist To me, it felt like being punched in the stomach I think that is because I was so invested in the story that when the big plot twist came, I was just thrown So I decided to reread this year to see how I d like this story knowing everything And it really felt much different and was evenenjoyable Here is my initial full review I think it s a good one On the reread it was fun to realize that I had When I read this last year for the first time, I couldn t believe the gigantic plot twist To me, it felt like being punched in the stomach I think that is because I was so invested in the story that when the big plot twist came, I was just thrown So I decided to reread this year to see how I d like this story knowing everything And it really felt much different and was evenenjoyable Here is my initial full review I think it s a good one On the reread it was fun to realize that I had missed so many little written in clues all the way through the first half of the book Interestingly enough, I managed to become so invested that when the big twist came again like I knew it would I found myself blindsided Again Except this time it was much easier to handle and I really loved it Ultimately, I think you have to suspend your disbelief at basically this entire story The whole thing If you re willing to do that, this story will go muchsmoothly for you Otherwise you may possibly be one of those readers that are skeptical about things from the very beginning, who never even stop questioning things to enjoy what is going on When I was able to read without that caution for the second time then I was able to fully enjoy the story Yes, it is hard to believe Yes, it is predictable But it is a holiday story and I really didn t mind that at all Super glad for this reread

    I picked this book up on a whim at the library b c I was looking for a heart warming Christmas story In Comfort Joy I definitely found it Since I already like Kristin Hannah, and I wanted a Christmas story, I didn t read any reviews on this book before hand and had no idea what to expect I m glad I didn t read any before hand though b c I had no expectations other than heart warming, and in that this book delivered The twist in the middle threw me a bit I never saw it coming at all and I picked this book up on a whim at the library b c I was looking for a heart warming Christmas story In Comfort Joy I definitely found it Since I already like Kristin Hannah, and I wanted a Christmas story, I didn t read any reviews on this book before hand and had no idea what to expect I m glad I didn t read any before hand though b c I had no expectations other than heart warming, and in that this book delivered The twist in the middle threw me a bit I never saw it coming at all and I found myself a bit disappointed However, I love the overall message of pursuing your dreams, no matter how crazy they may seem.I think this book found me at the right time in my own life, and made me appreciate it all theJoy is recently divorced, and worse, she was betrayed by her sister and only family She feels she s been living in a somewhat gray reality, and she s forgotten how to dream In this story, Joy remembers what it s like to dream about a future, and works to find the courage to reach out for that dream to try to make it a reality In the process Joy learns to forgive and to embrace the truth of her reality, instead of glossing over the truth for a somewhat less painful semi reality.I can see how the cheese factor and elements of unreality would not appeal to some, but not every story has to be reality based Sometimes we need to believe in magic, and inthan one of her books, Kristin Hannah gives us that reminder Sometimes believing in the unbelievable is exactly what we need Sometimes reality is bigger andcolorful than we can imagine when the day to day becomes too dull and gray
