    Sleeping on Jupiter eBook â Sleeping on Epub / sleeping pdf, jupiter pdf, Sleeping on book, Sleeping on Jupiter eBookI really don't know how to rate this book I hate to slam it and the author because there truly was so much potential in it in terms of content literary writing and subject matterI went into it without reading what it would be about Perhaps I should have This is a rollercoaster of a novel not in the 'excitementtension then a breather' way but in the way of often being dull and then walloping the reader on the head with something utterly disturbing and then some portions that sparkle with intelligence then back to dullThe audio reader didn't help A couple of her character voices were maddeningly grating and her overview diction was often stilted

    Sleeping on Jupiter eBook â Sleeping on Epub / sleeping pdf, jupiter pdf, Sleeping on book, Sleeping on Jupiter eBook Sleeping on Jupiter is a uick and sharp novel with interconnected stories but I'm left somewhat dissatisfied with the book as a whole The first few chapters of Sleeping on Jupiter are exhilarating and suspenseful We're introduced to an array of characters each with clear and uniue voices As the story progresses we see how each voice is relevant to the others I had two favorites but I think the voice of Nomi tied everything together nicely I happen to love stories with connections hidden throughout but an abundance of this can sour the experience of reading a story Sleeping on Jupiter surprised me at first when I realized that these characters were not just living alongside each other seperately but that each plot was furthering the other's This realization became less pleasant as the story reached the middle point as new c
