Murray does it again with this third book in her Seven Deadly Sins series, this installment the strongest, most intriguing of the series so far, at least for this reader. That's the beauty of this series. As each storyline wrestles with one of the deadly sins, readers are forced to do the same. I would never go down the path that Zuri takes in Greed, but I understand wanting more out of life than one's current position and I'm sure many of Murray's readers will too. As I read this book, I was reminded that we are to be content with where we find ourselves (Phil 4:11-13), a lesson Zuri certainly could have benefitted from.
I can only imagine what Murray has in store for her fans with the remainder of the series, but if Greed is any indicator, each book will provide great entertainment mixed with a bit of soul-searching. Can't wait for book 4!
I may be in the minority but I actually liked Zuri! I found myself questioning what I would do if the opportunity to live my dreams fell in my lap. Would I be able to see the tarnish under the gold? Would my desire to not have to struggle- even if only for a little while- would it provide enough of a smokescreen to hide what it is I did not want to see? I believe her heart was truly in the right place in wanting to experience different things in life and that doing so would not hurt those she loved. I rooted for her until the end. The twist at the end had me shedding tears, and I can not remember the last time a book made me cry. I truly felt what the characters were going through at that moment.
I am now impatiently awaiting the next book in the series.
Zuri was so blinded by greed, she used her friend and her dad; I was glad they both checked her. It did no good, though.
Ms Viv - I wondered what her role was, but everybody warned that she was shady and Zuri didn't heed the warning. I mean where was that mentee? I was too tickled though, about the home aide payments!
What an excellent portrayal of greed (combined with enough bad choices to last a lifetime).
Greed - “for all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye and the pride of life, is not of the Father but is of the world” (I John 2:16)..... I do not like Zuri Maxwell, I really tried, but I didn’t. I kept hoping she would open her eyes but she wouldn’t. So, I just don’t like her. I really want to smack her! This story is a perfect lesson on selfishness, lust and envy.....a tough lesson when you don’t learn it early.
Victoria Christopher Murray has done an amazing job with this book, and I am so looking forward to seeing it brought to life in the screen.
I've re-read several of Victoria's books as they are that good. Greed will be added to my list to read again. I strongly recommend this book and can't wait to see this made into a movie.
