This is a big ol' NOPE! This book is a hot mess of stereotypes, sloppy writing, even sloppier dialogue with thin characters. Not Gilbert's best. ( )

I have not read "Eat, Pray, Love" so I had no expectations when I picked up this book. I was hooked immediately. It was Elizabeth Gilbert's quirky sense of humor that captivated me. I found the che characters and dialogue fresh and entrusting and many passages made me laugh out loud. It's been a while since I've enjoyed a book this much. All I heard about "Eat, Pray, Love" was that the "Pray" section was very slow. I now know that there doesn't have to be a lot of action for Gilbert to keep me engaged.

Posto me je njena prva knjiga razocarala sa podozrenjem se citala ovu ali je na kraju prica bila dobra i citljiva.Govori se o dva ostrva izmedju kojih decenijama vlada sukob oko prava na izlov jastoga,o djevojci Rut koja je uspjela da pomiri sve i osnuje novu dinastiju. ( )

My daughter, Chris, had suggested that I read Elizabeth Gilbert's The Signature of all Things as my next book. My other daughter said that since we are headed to Maine this weekend, I should read Gilbert's Stern Men instead, as it is very Maine. I'm glad I decided to go with that. I really enjoyed it. Although the stories are very different, I thought it had the "feel" of Howard Norman's The Bird Artist, most likely because of the islands and the lobstermen.

It is the story of two islands off the coast of Maine, where the lobstermen have been feuding for decades. Every so often there is a lobster war, and then things settle down for a while, but the hatred lingers on. Ruth Thomas has grown up on one of these islands and is at the center of the story. She is a strong character, and I liked her. While it is her coming of age story, it is also the story of the lobstermen and their fight to make ends meet. The men on the islands remind me of some of the fishermen we have met on our journeys up to Maine. The story is full of humor and some great characters.

If you are expecting Eat, Pray, Love you won't find it here. (I haven't actually read that one and have no desire to read it, but know enough to know this one isn't it).

The story of Ruth's unusual family unfolds slowly in this novel: her father is a native islander lobsterman, her mother is an adopted member of a wealthy family but really a servant who has moved to New Hampshire. Ruth has obeyed the demands of everyone--her father, his friends, the wealthy patriarch, and his factotem--but the year she is 18 she comes home from boarding school with a mind of her own. Throughout I just wished she would stand up for herself, and when one of the inevitabilities happened by the end of the book I felt myself breathe a sigh of recognition. ( )

Twenty miles out from the coast of Maine, Fort Niles Island and Courne Haven Island face off - two old bastards in a staring contest, each convinced he is the other's only guard. Nothing else is near them. They are among nobody.
