My ReViEw!!!!! May 17, 2007
How Do I Love Thee was a great book. I enjoyed the descriptions of everything and it aloud me to visualise what was happeneing in the story. Also it made me thnik of real life problems and desieses that real people have to deal with in everyday life.And since it had three stories in one book i was always intertained during the whole book.That is my review of How Do I Love Thee.
LOVE IT!!!!!!! Feb 11, 2007
Everyone seems to say that the third one was the worst, but I loved it! I have read almost every Lurlene Mcdaniel book out there, and the short story "Laura's Heart" is the best! I also love The first, but the second was a little predictable. If you love sad books, this book is for you!
Bobby's Girl Oct 21, 2005
Bobby's Girl By: Lurlene McDaniel
Bobby's Girl is the best book I've ever read. Lurlene McDaniel wrote this romantic, sad, and fictional story with a lot of detail and thought. Dana and Bobby have been a couple for a while, but no one knew she is one of those millions of girls who fell for his athletic star older step-brother. Not even her best friend. She thought she wouldn't have to face both the brothers until the holidays, but the College Football Coach sends Steve home to the doctor because he is throwing way off. Steve is finds out he has terminal cancer and wants to spend time with the girl he loves before he dies, Dana. Neither of them want to hurt Bobby though. Bobby only has Dana because everyone loves his brother, like the girls, his dad, and the news reporters. The story usually takes place at Bobby's house and the hospital, around this time, and year round. Dana receives a necklace with a gold heart hanging down, embedded with a seed pearl, from Bobby for Christmas. She got a love-poem book from Steve for Dana to read when he's gone. Dana really wants to go to Julliard College with a piano scholarship, but never gets the scholarship. Steve has a stroke right before Bobby goes to a California College with a College scholarship for Cal-Tech. Of course, not all books are perfect. Bobby's Girl has a few things I don't like as much as others. For instance, I don't like that Steve dies, Dana doesn't get a scholarship, and Bobby and Dana wont be seeing each other until the next summer. But, I do like more things then I hate, of course. I cant tell them all because some are about the end, but here are some of them: Dana goes to Julliard, Bobby and his father get closer after Steve's death, both brothers are on the news at one point in the story, and etc. I defiantly recommend this book! I'd give it a 5 out of 5. And there isn't a certain age to read this book, but I would say it is probably best for teens and adults, because of the romance and sadness. Lurlene McDaniel writes tons of great stories, but most are sad or romantic. They usually have deaths. But she is still my favorite author!
Just Beautiful Aug 22, 2005
Lurlene McDaniel never ceases to capture the art of love and life in her books. These three stories are my favorites of all Lurlene McDaniel's books. They are very meaningful and share all that life gives, what with how wonderful it is. Not everything can be well received, though, but what you make of it could make a difference. If this book doesn't make you cry, I don't know what would.
how do i love thee review Jun 9, 2005
I think that this author did an amazing job with this book! There are three stories in this book. They are all connected with the peom called "How Do I Love Thee." I think it was a really good idea to connect the poems in the end of each story. All these stories are sad stories. In each story there is a character that has a deadly, genetic disease. The characters in this book suffer a horrible heartbreak. This book made me cry but I love it anyway. I hope people would read this book to understand the terrible diseases that some people suffer.
