Fear applies as in Cape Fear...with knobs on!
on 28 June 2015
You could say that the heroine Scarlett had a spell of bad luck in this permanently frantic tale. I don't think it would be giving anything away to say she survived....which is more than you can say for almost every other character involved. Reminds me of a Russian novel I gave up on many years ago, where it got boring with the hero kept surviving all thrown at him. It can't be all bad tho' because I did, at least, finish this book. I think younger readers used to permanent mayhem games might love it and I would happily recommended it to them. Not for a gentle older soul like me tho'.
