What no Zero stars?,
This review is from: Don't Look Down (Hardcover)
Never in a million years would I have believed i would give a negative review to the wonderful and talented Ms Crusie.
Her characters and stories are usually so smart, sassy, sexy and a Crusie novel is a real event, a positive treat; B U T...
I could not finish this book; God knows i tried... I met the amazonian movie director, our heroine on her film set and the serious faced, muscle bound Stunt man that in the first few pages saves the cute kid. I was waiting to feel something for the sister that has a problem or chuckle at the on set antics of the hapsless but handsdome leading man but nope... as I literally slogged on hoping against hope to like this book I found it a slow, dull, humourless bore.
Now in case you think I am some snooty, look-down-her-nose at romantic fiction, hardback novel reader I will say, I have read nearly all of Crusie's books and love them. I also nearly always finish books I pay for.
I could not get through the first 50 pages and I am heartbroken that my queen of romance idol, Jennifer Crusie has her name attached to such a heavy going, confusing, unattatching book. I will thus blame the whole thing on Mr Mayer.
Do not bother with this book but read Welcome to Temptation, Crazy for You, Bet Me, Tell me Lies, Faking it ... the list goes on and on.
Jennifer Crusie writes wonderful books, unfortunately "Don't look Down" definitely is not one of them!
