    Read & Download à The Pursuit of Alice Thrift The Pursuit of Alice ThriftI absolutely adored this book it's witty funny my roommate found it funny the number of times I laughed while reading it and an all around feel good tale of Alice Thrift's growing pains as a newly minted surgical resident without much in the way of a social life As is to be expected it was rather predictable but the predictability didn't detract from my good natured amusement one bit

    Read & Download à The Pursuit of Alice Thrift The Pursuit of Alice ThriftWho would pursue Alice Thrift Not me that's for sure Here is why this book should have succeeded and perhaps did for others It takes on a wonderful premise of a freshly minted doctor who discovers while interning as a surgeon that her success at tests and reading comprehension pales to the real thing I very much appreciated the tension of a cerebral doctor struggling with the personal side of the profession Also the protagonist Alice is an Aspergers esue woman which i

    Read & Download à The Pursuit of Alice Thrift The Pursuit of Alice ThriftWhat a perfect beach read I guess you could call this chick lit but better written I loved the main character Alice Thrift every inch of her nerdy cynical unsociable self I especially got a kick out of her honest evaluations of herself She knows she's a workaholic who is at the hospital even when she doesn't need to be She knows she has terrible people skills with

    Read & Download à The Pursuit of Alice Thrift The Pursuit of Alice ThriftI enjoyed this book immensely It was laugh out loud funny—until the end view spoilerI am not only disenchanted by the turn the story took because it trivializes two otherwise fabulous characters and their serious issues surrounding money class mutual attraction balancing a demanding career and relationship etc I am highly disappointed by the ending’s implausibility and its many gaping holes eg why would an otherwise sensible emotionally stunted physician jump the gun and elope with Ray in the first place And having done that why does she suddenly become so savvy and shrewd at their wedding reception And why would he—if he is such an expert scammer and the entire marriage is a sham—bring his “real” fiancé to their wedding Lipman had me strapped in and suealing in delight throughout this thrill ride but the final curve jolted me callously and left me bruised rather than tickled Perhaps I am as big an idiot as Alice for having been so charm
