Misses on all levels 24 Oct. 2005
By baramarie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I couldn't agree more with the majority of readers who find this

book vapid, shallow, and completely boring. I cannot understand

how one reader (from Boston) found the author had captured the

essence of Cape Cod...I frequently spend time in Truro and I

was utterly disappointed that neither Truro or the lower Cape

ever came to life in this book. She might have been anywhere.

The characters never came to life and what little we learn of them does not make you want to know more anyway.

I gave this l star because there was nothing lower.

Big disappointment 7 May 2006
By slick54 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I read and enjoyed other novels by this author, so I looked forward to reading this. I can't remember a more unrelatable, dislikeable protagonist, so self-centered and caught up in her own sensibilities and aesthetics to the extent that other people served as decoration. I agree with the political slant being overworked; the message again is that one's personal aesthetics and sensibilities can trump the rights of other people.

Below expectations 10 Sept. 2005
By A. MCDERMOTT - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Boring, boring, boring.

I kept expecting the story to get better and more interesting, but it never did.

The mystery was laughable and the character development was wafer thin.

Don't bother with this one 27 Jun. 2006
By Work in Progress - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Amateur writing - words, even paragraphs missing; odd vocabulary selections. Hollow, self-absorbed characters suffering from unformed consciences and moral bankruptcy. Extreemist leftist/feminist political tirades that have nothing to do with the story. Self-rightous and judgemental. Hanging plotlines. I knew I wasn't going to like the book by Page 4 when the main character noted that her best friend was "not deeply into feminism..." Like they say: Those who can't do, teach. I pity Anne Bernays' writing students (especially her potty mouth - very unbecoming). Don't bother with this one.

Don't Waste Your Time! 20 Aug. 2005
By My2Cents - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I love books with an Island setting, so when I heard about Trophy House, I had high expectations. I was sorely disappointed. The characters were superficial & highly underdeveloped, and this book did not do justice to the beauty of Cape Cod. I generally read a good book in one day, this realtively short novel took me 4 days as I found it EASY to put down and DIFFICULT to pick back up. If you'd like to read a truly great book this summer try: Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, by Lisa See! 5 stars & more!
