2.0 out of 5 stars Too much attempted??, 22 July 2010
This review is from: Living la Vida Loca (Paperback)
I am such a huge Belinda Jones fan and have every single one of her books on my bookshelf. I was so excited to see a new novel out and so bought it immediately. I was expecting the normal, upbeat, laugh out loud story line that has gripped me in each of her other novels however, I have been disappointed. I think that there is TOO much going on in this book and possibly could have been better if it was focused or set in ONE destination allowing for the characters to be further developed. With Belinda's other books I have been really able to picture the characters and connect with them but this one is lacking...I would love to have seen more happening in Argentina...it's such a huge country, surely more could have occurred? Also, as a bilingual speaker I was a little frustrated at the Spanish translations which weren't always correct. Having said this, I will still be purchasing whatever Belinda writes next as I am still an avid fan, and we can't all hit the note every time...
