Ehh This was not a good book I expected, from its description and some of the reviews, something light and fun a beach read And while the plot was certainly ridiculous enough to qualify and there were a few parts that sort of made me chuckle, there was something inherently alienating, off putting about the whole book The way the book was written, its style if you could really call it that , made it seem like watching fish act out a story through thick aquarium glass that had never been cleaned Y [...]

Night Swimming by Robin Schwarz is by far one of the greatest novels I have read Honestly, it was an honor to read this book, and meet the wonderful characters in it like the lovely miss Charlotte This book was very touching in a way that I thought was impossible, through the crazy adventures Charlotte takes you with I thought this novel was going to be a bit boring at first but I was wrong Indeed, I definitely misjudged this book at first but as I read I got interested and which was another t [...]

Wow Not what I had expected Talk about cheering for the underdog The story of this wonderful woman warms your heart, and makes you try to find ways even small ways to better yourself She allows the reader to follow her journey, be inside her head and her heart Very well written, full of heart and soul I laughed and cried in public with this book kinda funny now that I think back at my reactions.

What can I say about this book that hasn t already been said or dreamed up by it s amazing author One thing comes to mind It impacted my life immensely Charlotte Blossom was tossed a death sentence and knocked down Rather than choosing to die she chose to live out a life of crime, wanderlust, passion all the while swimming through Literally Traditionally it s hard to root for someone who thieves their way through life Instead, the audience cheers Charlotte, newly christened Blossom She is who we [...]

Back and forth, back and forth she swam Such a simple yet intense message I couldn t put this book down for even a second The plot was so out there that it captivated me from cover to cover I was lucky enough, this passed 4th of July, to have met Robin in Rockport, MA in her beautiful store, 8 Bells I spoke of my own struggles, much like Charlotte Blossom s The author spoke with me for quite a while about the cosmic connection I share with the protagonist Robin signed my book with a beautiful me [...]

This book was okay in the beginning I thought, Interesting premise, slightly predictable, but I m interested to see where this goes However, it got very preachy, and completely unrealistic Charlotte is OBSESSED with her love interest, in a clearly very unhealthy manner, but it all works out okay, because she comes to love herself, and then it s somehow not so creepy that she thinks she was in love with him before she knew anything about him She stole 2 million, but because she somehow secreted a [...]

This book gets a glowing eh review from me While I can always get into a book that is written well with a fairly thin plot, and vice versa, I have a hard time getting into a book that is both written poorly with a thin plot There is a marked difference between a book clearly written to be fanciful and a book that tries to actually convince the reader the plot is feasible The good points about reading this book are that you won t have to think very hard about anything it s probably best you don t [...]

This is an outrageous book full of humor and wisdom The author is excellent with descriptions, especially of feelings and the night sky Overweight Charlotte has been leading a boring life in a boring job when her doctor tells her she has a year to live She quits her job at the bank and shortly thereafter secretly robs it, fakes her suicide, and heads for Hollywood Robin Schwartz also wrote Pay It Forward, so you know this has quality writing This book has a lot to say about happiness and guilt I [...]

This is definitely a feel good book I actually picked this book up in a bargain bin on a whim because the description sounded fun When I started reading it, I couldn t put it down Charlotte is such a relatable character She s in a dead end job with friends who aren t really that nice to her, and she doesn t really like herself that much When she receives some terrible news, she decides that life is too short to waste and goes on an incredible journey This is obviously just a very general summary [...]

This book was so stupid Why do I insist on finishing books that clearly aren t going to do it for me I have to say, this one was recommended to me by someone I really respect, so I kept reading it She was thinking that I would appreciate how this woman found herself when she found swimming I did appreciate that about the book however the stupid plot line, unrealistic events, and mediocre characters took up the other 300 and some pages.I know I am an addict I promise next time I will stop at page [...]

A story about achievement, love and te journey of a woman trying to find herself and living life fully This novel seems quite mild at first but then evolves into a woman s quest for self improvement and in this journey she learns to act spontaneously and live for the moment Ok, well right there she robs a bank and flees to Cali after she learns she has cancer so come on, if that isn t interesting, then what is Charlotte Clapp is a heroine readers will never forget She is truly amazing and unforg [...]

I confess that I only read half of this book couldn t even make it through the whole thing The author never made me feel invested in any of the characters and the whole book had a weird, dated feel about it I kept checking the copyright to make sure it wasn t from the 80s, and every time I would again see 2004 The celebrities the main character talks about are mostly from about 20 years ago I just didn t see any cultural references that made sense Was completely incongruous and poorly written.

Accolades adorn the cover of Night Swimming by Robin Schwarz and perhaps as a result, my expectations were too high It is a tale of empowerment and self discovery but my favourite part, the part I award three stars too, was her journey to LA when Charlotte goes on the lam.It doesn t claim to be a Pulitzer but I still found it too predictable and light weight in parts Ideal as a lazy summer beach read.

I was anticipating a light, clever read with humor The premise seemed promising a dying fat girl robs a bank to live her dream But oh, it was just regurgitated bilge The end was especially disgustingly sacchrine Fat girl becomes skinny Skinny girl wins love She s not going to die Her crime is forgiven She inherits a huge sum of money For a very similar story with a bit originality, read The Blue Castle by LM Montgomery I d probably rate that one 2 stars.

I thought this would be a light, fun chick lit read but I was wrong The premise is somewhat promising, an overweight woman is given a year to live So, she steals 2 million dollars from the bank where she works and runs off to Hollywood Almost everything about this book was too cliche It was wayyyyyy too long And, Schwarz wrote one of the worst male characters ever Skip No man talks like that Ever Read Good in Bed instead.

Charlotte was hilarious this woman said things we would only think of Awes and Mrs Dolly hoe could you not love her This woman was in her eighties and was so full of wisdom and Spunk If you need a book that will make you laugh, cry, or rethink the way you are living than you have to read thisbook about Charlotte s journey of finding herself and forgiveness while shading the pounds and being a night swimmer

It is an okay premise fun even but the writing skills are not strong I m kind of amazed that it was ever published The characters aren t developed very well and the author uses dialogue in big chunks for exposition She turns a nice phrase here and there, but it is cheesy to the max It had potential to be a great book I wish this author had found a great editor or a publisher who could have boiled this down to something great.

Maybe it s because I read this right after Time Travelers Wife an amazing book or maybe because it says on the back cover that her role model is James Patterson who I think is a terrible writer but I had a bad taste in my mouth from this book from the get go I don t really think that I gave it a fair chance, but it all seemed so implausible and ridiculous and I was not thrilled with her writing style It did REALLY make me miss California though Why did I leave there again
