Descended Into Farce
on 14 December 2013
This started with promise (although I've no idea whatsoever why the leading lady is listed as the author-that is beyond bizarre).....anyway, it started well and I'd bought it as it was the prequel to Promise You Won't Tell. But it descended into farce and I packed it in halfway through. I am quite disappointed. I knew it was humourous from reviews I'd seen but I don't like slapstick and so I ended up disliking it intensely. I don't understand why the author took it in that direction.
I liked Dani at first but she sounds to me more like the author's ideal woman who would maybe behave the way he'd like her to and her whole lifestyle and set-up was a big turn-off to me.
Then what totally ruined it for me was the name of a legal company-Conner, Palate, Tonsil and Uvula. I thought at first it was a joke that would be explained in a couple of pages but no, it was for real and finished it for me. Just a ridiculous thing to have done. I won't bother with the sequel now, either.
I've never seen ji-normous spelt with a j and not a g but that was the only mistake and earned it an extra star, though.
