    Catalina Kindle ☆ Paperback catalina ebok, Catalina PDFI'm between 35 and 4 stars here so I'll round upWhy is it so fascinating to read about people in the midst of crises mostly of their own design? Is it like rubbernecking as you pass a gruesome accident on the highway that can't look but can't look away feeling? Or is it the reinforcement of how lucky we are that our lives aren't that bad a there but for the grace of God moment?Whatever the reason reading about people whose lives are a mess can be fascinating And if you

    Catalina Kindle ☆ Paperback catalina ebok, Catalina PDF“I call room service and order another Bloody Mary which I tell myself is basically a salad”After being fired from working as an assistant at the MoMa Elsa returns to California where she meets up with her college friends including her ex husband Robby who is dating a triathlete and though he seems happy with Jane also seems to pine for Elsa Her other friend Charlotte “Charly” has a strained relationship with her husband Elsa constantly pops pills she stole from her mother She doesn’t even know what the pills are—she makes guesses and then washes them down with alcohol Obviously alcohol and drugs keep a person in a haze where she doesn’t have to feel the pain of her married lover breaking up with her and firing her but it also keeps her from being a

    Catalina Kindle ☆ Paperback catalina ebok, Catalina PDFA sad tale of a young woman that has hit rock bottom Elsa has recently been let go of her dream job at MoMa because she was having an affair with her very married boss She is absolutely devastated She flies home to California where she reunites with not only her family but her college best friends She spends her days in a complete haze due to self medicating with an array of pills lots of alcohol cocaine and random sex with strangers which will lead her to devastating consequences It's hard to garner much sympathy for Elsa because she continually makes bad choices and rather than owning them she'd prefer to just walk away and not deal with it She really doesn't care about anyone except herself She may not sound like someone you'd want to read about but Liska Jacobs writes so beautifully that you are compelled to continue This one was very good indeed Thank you so much to NetGalley Farrar Straus and Giroux for granting my wish to read this in exchange for my ho

    Catalina Kindle ☆ Paperback catalina ebok, Catalina PDFCatalina is not a feel good bookIt’s beautifully written lush and incredibly depressingI didn’t like Elsa There were times I almost liked her but in the end I hated her The book has shades of Valley of the Dolls The characters are so very desperate to not feel anything at all Elsa in particular lives on pills and admiration – she barely allows herself an identity beyond those And it’s so very sad that so many men want to sleep with her but also hold her in contempt As you read about the beautiful but desperate people – and the even beautiful world of Catalina – you’re aware of a build up to something dark and tragic It makes for a very unsettling readA very well written book that left me feeling very sadA

    Catalina Kindle ☆ Paperback catalina ebok, Catalina PDFFive stars is maybe a little generous but this debut took me by complete surprise An almost Greek tragedy set against the scalding and scandalous backdrop of contemporary LA we follow the instantly unlikeable Elsa hitting a downward spiral Sparked by being fired from her swanky New York museum job she’s bitter and wistful for the married boss who is the cause of this sudden predicament She’s a freshly dyed redhead popping a cocktail of pills and hooking up with bad boys on the beach We know how this story goes right? But as it turns out we don’t This gets gritty and claustrophobic and takes unsettlingly compelling turns Nauseatingly readable this book is as hot a mess as Elsa herself A brilliant novel
