Not up to Barnett's previous standards
on 27 August 1999
I have read all of Jill Barnett's books and was eagerly awaiting this one but was disappointed in it, coming away feeling as if these characters were not fully developed. The humor was not up to par either for Ms. Barnett. Sofia and Tobin were great looking but that seems to be all that was important about these two. Tobin never understood what really made Sofia tick-her fear of abandonment, her dread of waiting for the men she loved-at least this was never brought out in dialogue. The two of them were flat and lacking in compassion most of the time. I wouldn't tell someone not to read Wicked, but think Ms. Barnett has done better developing her "inner" characters in past reads.
