    Hardcover Ó Lone Star Kindle ï lone kindle, star kindle, Lone Star PDF/EPUBOn the face of it Lone Star is going to appeal most to those who are interested in 1950s Hollywood with its classic films and movie stars its secrets and scandals I grew up with two movie buffs and I learned a lot through osmosis I've also read Ferber's books and watched Giant and many many other movies of the period With all this having been said I still think there's a lot in Lone Star that will appeal to readers who are arriving on the scene completely cluelessEdna Ferber makes an interesting sleuth not always sure of herself but quick thinking and watching her turn into The Grande Dame when she's not being given her proper due is a treat Mercedes McCambridge is a wonderful choice to be Ferber's sidekick She knows everyone and knows all the ins and outs of Hollywood so she can open many of the doors that Ferber needs to walk through She's also got the requisite inquiring mind and free spiritWhat is perhaps

    Hardcover Ó Lone Star Kindle ï lone kindle, star kindle, Lone Star PDF/EPUBLook I didn't come to this book with extremely high expectations I was hoping to be entertained with an interesting story built around a movie and author I've been studying But this book is just hard to read There is so much telling The narrator tells us all the time that she is frustrated and tired and hot an a million other things Then there's the telling that's especially out of place with first person narration I consider such indulgence a nap a sign of weakness It's my custom to take walks every day in the afternoon It's like the author wants to show how much research he's done about Ferber so he's just telling us things

    Hardcover Ó Lone Star Kindle ï lone kindle, star kindle, Lone Star PDF/EPUBI found several factual errors maybe because I am a HUGE James Dean fan One is small James smoked Winston's not Chesterfield's the other two are not Marcus Winslow was his cousin NOT his nephew and this was after the author mentioned that James was an only child Also James' Spyder

    Hardcover Ó Lone Star Kindle ï lone kindle, star kindle, Lone Star PDF/EPUBI thought the characterization and setting of this book were expertly done Ifkovic's Ferber is acerbic and engaging and he does an admirable job of infusing humanity into the mythology of Dean I also loved the inclusion of classic character actress Mercedes McCambridge as Ferber's partner in detection The mystery though feels like it idles for a big chunk of the middle portion of the book


  7. Dennis Fischman Dennis Fischman says:

    Hardcover Ó Lone Star Kindle ï lone kindle, star kindle, Lone Star PDF/EPUBGood premise and although I don’t like the atmosphere of Hollywood it seemed true to life None of the characters was fully fleshed out and although you could forgive that about the actors who might have taken pains to stay in persona I was hoping fir a better sense of Edna Ferber She’s a writer all but forgotten now and she deserves of a portrait than this book can give her

    Hardcover Ó Lone Star Kindle ï lone kindle, star kindle, Lone Star PDF/EPUBI decided to read this book because I saw the author on a list of overlooked mystery authors and I remember reading Edna Ferber's books a long time ago Unfortunately I didn't like the Ferber character in this book DNF

    Hardcover Ó Lone Star Kindle ï lone kindle, star kindle, Lone Star PDF/EPUBSo Edna Ferber as the detective with Mercedes McCambridge as her sidekick on the set of Giant with James Dean under the microscope as well as an author whose initials are E and I How precisely does one resist?Just finished it did not guess the murderer
