I thought all the characters were well portrayed and I could visualise them and their surroundings easily. However, I was deeply irritated that the baby was nick-named "Sock". What an abysmal nick-name [short for Socrates, apparently] - every time I read it, I felt cross!
Where Rosie Thomas certainly shines is in her descriptions of foreign countries [her more recent books are often set overseas] and in this one the sections set in Italy really bring some warmth and colour to this story.
And - unfortunately, this was one of the disappointments.
For a start, I couldn't decide (and still can't make my mind up) if Rosie Thomas's elaborate and colourfull descriptions of everything were a bit overdone and unnecessary - in fact I think they were. The flowery descriptions in the end got on my nerves.
Then, there's the unbelieveable sequence of events that made up the storyline, it turned into a bit of a panto in the end. Did someone really describe it as an 'intelligent read' (as it says on the cover)? - Did they actually read the book!!??
I didn't think the characters were very well described either, I found it hard to warm to them.
Someone else, in their review said "The main character, Jess, is undescribed and comes across as a dreary, boring, sexless person. When she begins an affair with Danny's older friend, Rob, I felt it hard to sustain my belief in the situation." I COULDN'T AGREE MORE.
Give it a miss. Not well written and a poor story line. Sorry Rosie Thomas!
