Format: Hardcover
I had such high hopes for this book. After many disappointments with Danielle Steel lately, the synopsis seemed promising.

Alas. This book was far from ds at her best, when she was writing really good books. The last fairly acceptable one being "Sisters".

"Honor Thyself" starts with 50 year old world famous movie star Carole Barber trying to write a semi-biographic book. A very sympathetic heroine, too sympathetic perhaps, but that is regular ds recipe. However, already the first 20-30 pages are so repetitive and downright boring that I only kept reading in the hope that it would all get better.

In a way it does. Carole ends up in an awful accident, a terrorist attack in Paris. She almost dies, lies in a coma for a long time. Wakes up, does not recognize anyone, not even her children. She finally gets better and gets a new lease on life. She finds the answers she has been seeking both from her past and her loves.

The book has a happy, perhaps a bit unexpected, ending. That is, if you manage to get so far (or only take a peak at the end in order to find out). Because, even if things do happen in this book, it continues being extremely repetitive and lacking in substance. A big yawn, all the way!

If properly edited, it could have made a nice little short story, but there certainly is not material for much more than that.

Danielle Steel is such a fine writer and has given me so much joy with her numerous excellent works. Please get back to the quality of quite long ago. This book is a waste of money both in hardcover and paperback.

Format: Hardcover
I've lost count of how many Danielle Steel novels I've read over the years, but I was rather dubious about reading another as the last few I've read that have been published since 2000 I've been disappointed in, as the quality and style had completely altered.

The story is set around a movie star called Carole Barber who has two children and been married twice. She has lived in America and France, and been on location all over the world for her movies. Carole was in the process of writing a novel but she had writers block and decided on taking a trip which hopefully would her. Here long time assistant and friend Stephanie recommended France as she knew Carole had loved the 2yrs that she had spent there with her children. The day she arrives in Paris she decides to go on a long walk looking at all the places that she had loved, she then took a taxi back to the hotel when disaster struck. I don't want to mention anymore of the story as I don't want to spoil it for you.

The story is well written, the characters have depth, and the descriptive work throughout the book I found to be excellent. :-)

Personally, I loved this novel. The book gripped me right from the first page; it was an enjoyable and compulsive read. I read this book within 24hrs as I found it hard to put down. :-)

It's definitely a book I'd read again and is worth every penny. :-)

I brought this download for my wifes Kindle. She must have 15 books on the Kindle and much more on the book shelf. Her comment was if this was the first Danielle Steel book I had bought it would have been the last.
The writing is so repetative and the whole novell is rubbish.

Dont buy this

My first Danielle Steel novel. The one star is for the fact that the story is OK. However the writing is so repetitive. This novel could have been a quarter of the length and had more impact, but I am afraid there was just too much waffle.

I really enjoyed this book but couldn't really understand why it was called The Flight of Swallows unless I missed a reference to it somewhere. But nevertheless I found it hard to put down, it was a very unusual story and I would thoroughly recommend it. I really admired Charlotte's spirit and her good intentions towards those less fortunate than herself.
