Better as a short story,
This review is from: The Ice Cream Girls (Paperback)
I felt the story took a long time to get to the point and the main characters were not believable as real people so it was hard to feel any empathy with them. The peripheral characters were completely one-dimensional and the style of writing and the words all of the characters used just didnt ring true a lot of the time. I agree with the reviewers who say there are too many coincidences and holes in the storyline. It's not the worst book I have ever read and I am sure a lot of people will enjoy it but I agree with others that it would be more believable had it been set, perhaps, in the 1950s rather than the 80s and I think it may have worked better for me as a short story.
