J.B. Hartnett: Watching the Sky Cry



Megjelenés éve: 2016.

Magánkiadás

205 oldal

Fülszöveg:  Ten years is a long time when you’re thirty-two. We’d seen our share of ups and downs, but I could honestly say they were mostly up. 

That’s the thing about happiness though. It lulls you into a false sense of security. I’m sure neither one of us thought we’d ever be touched by crippling loss or immeasurable grief. But not all stories have a happy ending and I knew better than anyone that sometimes, one of you won’t make it till the end. One of you has to go first. And one of you… 

Will be left behind to pick up the pieces. 

And that’s me. 

But starting over isn’t at all what I thought it would be. I needed escape from the memories that plagued me, reminded me. So I went back to where it all began. To the town where I was born. To the place whose beauty could pierce my pain. Where I experienced my first kiss, where I fell in love, where a man was my earth. And I… 

Was his sky.

Imádom J.B. Hartnett könyveit. Az Inky óta őrizgetem a szívemben azt a különleges, magával ragadó írásmódot, amit az írónő képvisel. Így mikor ez a könyv bejelentésre került, nem is volt kérdés, hogy elolvasom. Hogy el kell olvasnom. Mert tudtam, hogy Harnett neve csak is minőségi regényt fémjelezhet.
Nagyon ritk
án van, hogy egy fülszöveg ennyire megragadja a figyelmemet. Most ez megtörtént. Nagyon szeretem az ilyesfajta sztorikat. És az, hogy J.B. Hartnett írta – mindenképpen garancia volt egy kis szívfájdalomra. Amit persze egy pillanatig se bántam, mert fájdalom még sosem volt ennyire jó.

Ez a regény brutálisan őszinte, nyílt, összetett és kerek, varázslatosan szenvedélyes, de nem vad, meglepő, de nem túlzó. Igazi. A gyermeki álmokat úgy szövi bele az írónő, hogy megmutatja az élet keserű oldalát is – éppen emiatt annyira káprázatos ez az egész.

Nagyon szépen, színvonalasan van felépítve. Imádtam az egyes szám első személyű narrációt, hisz a legjobb, legfontosabb szereplő szemszögéből követhettük végig a történetet. Ott voltunk minden egyes sokknál, minden egyes szívszorító pillanatnál, olyan volt, mintha hősnőnk szemén keresztül az olvasó is láthatta volna a sztori minden egyes rezdülését.


Az összes  szereplőnek nagyon komoly egyénisége van, akik megjelennek, mind-mind komoly szerepet kapnak a dolgok alakulásában.
Rylie és Quentin kapcsolata több korszakot átível, a gyermekkori szerelem végigkísérő őket az úton, ami az újraegyesüléshez vezet. Imádtam róluk olvasni, imádtam minden egyes pillanatot átélni velük.

Így, a végén azt kell mondjam, hogy ez a regény mindenképpen elolvasandó, ha szeretnétek úgy elrepülni egy kitalált világba, hogy még tanultok is belőle.

“Are these…real?” I asked. I knew nothing about jewelry, but something told me they weren’t fake.
“For us, everything is real.” He smiled. “Now hurry up before I back out.”


“Sometimes, it’s not until you close your eyes that you know the true beauty of the world around you.”


“I was too young to understand what letting you go meant when I was eighteen. Now I know, and I don’t plan on giving up this time.”



“I see you, like I always did,” he said. “Everything that’s you, even your pain. Never hesitate to give it to me.”

Ten years is a long time when you’re thirty-two. We’d seen our share of ups and downs, but I could honestly say, they were mostly up. That’s the thing about happiness though. It lulls you into a false sense of security.


Neither one of us ever thought we’d ever be touched by crippling loss or immeasurable grief. But not all stories have a happy ending, and I knew, better than anyone, that sometimes, one of you won’t make it till the end. One of you has to go first. And one of you will be left behind to pick up the pieces.


That one is me.


But starting over isn’t what I thought it would be. I need escape from the memories that plague me, remind me. So I went back to where it all began. To the town where I was born. To the place whose beauty could pierce my pain. Where I experienced my first kiss, where I fell in love, where a man was my earth. And I…


I was his sky.

Excerpt
You never had a girlfriend.” I whispered.
“No, Rylie. I didn’t.”
I pushed away from him, my mouth coating itself in preparation for what was to come, and ran toward the field behind his parents’ house. I threw up everything in my stomach, but I kept heaving with wracking sobs, unable to keep my shit together. If I’d listened….if I’d answered his letters…if I hadn’t met Nick…
His hands were in my hair, pulling it back, but it was no use. I was a mess in every way possible.
“This isn’t…” I hiccupped, “how I imagined this going.”
“Yeah?” he said softly. “How’d you imagine it?”
“We would have it out, and then we’d have angry sex, and then we’d fall in love and have babies and live happily ever after.”
See? Honesty.
“Oh Rylie,” he said with humor in his voice, not at all bothered when he wiped the edges of my disgusting mouth with his hand. “I’ll be pissing you off again…probably on purpose just so we can have that angry sex you just mentioned.”

About the Author:
Hartnett.jpg
Julie is a southern California native, a fan of a really good story (preferably a romance with a happily ever after), really good pie (preferably pumpkin)and copious amounts of coffee (preferably Folgers).


She has always enjoyed writing and at one time thought she might be a singer/songwriter. The 'writer' part is that one that stuck.


Julie is obsessed with Pi...the equation and the food. She's allergic to cats, cantaloupe and hates mushrooms. So if you ever want to give her a gift, those are out for sure.


She currently lives with her romance hero husband and two boys in Melbourne, Australia.
