Catch the Sun gives flashes into the life of Marilyn Munroe and gives her a new series of events in her life. Amanda was complex character that got her fame in a not so glamour way. Amanda slowly sinks into madness and complete separates herself from the remainder of her family. The concept was an interesting one; I found the book very engaging and hard to put down. I had to know what was going to happen next with Marilyn and Amanda. I enjoyed the duel points of view from Marilyn and Amanda as their lives intertwined together.
I really enjoyed everything about this book, I thought the characters were all complex and had depth. The story was interesting, I thought I had the ending figured out but the last twist in the end caught me off guard and the book ended on a good note. I was intrigued by the ending and find myself wondering what is going to happen next with Amanda.
I look forward to reading more books by this author. Did I enjoy this book: I really did not enjoy this book. I wanted to, but I did not. The problem was that I did not care about any of the characters. I read this book in a bit over a day but there were some parts that I found myself skimming over because I just wasn't that interested.
The story itself was quite creative. That was what piqued my interest in this book. But the back and forth between the Marilyn and Amanda time frames and did not flow well. I've read plenty of books wit Did I enjoy this book: I really did not enjoy this book. I've read plenty of books with jumping time periods, and they have worked, but this one was just confusing.
So were some of the transitions between parts of the story. The characters drew no sympathy from me. I didn't like Edith. She was selfish in death when she didn't have the decency to finalize her deception to Amanda. If she didn't want to tell her daughter that she was adopted - which was the wrong decision from the start, in my opinion - then she should have taken the necessary steps to make sure that secret went with her to the grave.
That was horrible. Amanda was a product of her own making. She could have had a great, bright future when she was younger but she tossed it all away.
Then she started to spiral out of control and reality. What was even true? What was in her head? I just kept thinking "why am I still reading this? Catch The Sun (Original Mix) did not. Would I recommend it: I would not. Will I read it again: I will not. Sep 24, Celia rated it really liked it. Catch the Sun revolves around Amanda Grace, a woman who at one point experienced the limelight of fame but has since fallen out of favor of the rich and famous.
The suicide of her mother begins the downward spiral for the once-adored actress. Her agent leaves her and her career as an actress is overshadowed by her past and the loss of her mother. As her world continues to crumble around her, she begins to see flashes of a woman outside her window. A woman who could understand her loneliness and Catch the Sun revolves around Amanda Grace, a woman who at one point experienced the limelight of fame but has since fallen out of favor of the rich and famous.
A woman who could understand her loneliness and betrayal - Marilyn Monroe. Inspired, Amanda is determined to find out all she can about the beloved actress in hopes of mimicking her.
It is her comeback in the making. What I loved most about this book are the perspectives that we see from each of the female characters.
The story moves wonderfully from the past, showing glimpses of Amanda's mother and Marilyn Monroe. Marilyn's narrative is fictional, of course, but it does not detour from the emotion of the individual. And, as you may have guessed, I look out for my readers. That said, this story involves much talk about suicide, depression, abandonment and just plain loneliness - pretty grim stuff.
However, it does not ever sound fake or exploited, but real Catch The Sun (Original Mix) understood. These are realities and the story treats them as such. This book kept my interest until the end.
This is, in large part, due to the wonderful character developments for each of the strong women portrayed in this book. Aug 16, Sage Adderley-Knox rated it really liked it. She battles feelings of inadequacy, abandonment, and desperation. The sightings encourage Amanda to attempt to revive her lifeless acting career, but can she conquer her demons?
Lee Zamloch has written two stories that beautifully interweave in Catch the Sun. Zamloch introduces us to Amanda Grace, a former model and struggling actress, and shares the intimate side of Marilyn Monroe who walked a similar path as Grace, some thirty years earlier.
Both women battle depression, substance abuse, and the desire to be loved for who they truly are opposed to the persona that everyone else sees. Catch the Sun deals with stardom, obsession, losing yourself to please others, and grasping onto strings to regain control while dealing with intense issues.
