Collins hits the skids,
This review is from: Poor Little Bitch Girl (Hardcover)
For years, if you wanted something steamy, something glamorous and bound up with the rich storytelling skills then you knew to reach for the latest Jackie Collins. However, more recently it seems to be more about the name on the cover than the real content as the characters within this offering really would not stand out compared to her earlier ones. They're weak, they're unglamorous and above all they seem pretty wretched as their singular unpopular threadbare lives don't make for great material. A good example of this is the character of Bobby Santangelo who you'd expect to have the guts of his mother Lucky, the wants and needs of a playboy but unfortunately is too much of a goody goody with no real backbone and not enough bad boy to satisfy the readers expectations.
Whilst Jackie does seem to be trying to get a more realistic woman into her pieces what she needs to do is get out there and research the women of today as she really does seem to have lost touch with a number of her audience that originated in the 80's. Hopefully she'll get back on form with her next offering.
