This one is awful - and yes - this is my opinion. I admit that I bought it on the strength of the Elephant one but more fool me.
If you're like me and find an author who "works" for you & end up buying all they've done in order to carry on enjoying the style, just be aware that I paid the price here for my naivety. I should have researched this particular book more thoroughly...
This is a book that I will read and read again.
Personally love the author's other works, but this one sometimes make me tremble in frustration in certain segments.
The main character's going through a lot in life, up-coming divorce, father being diagnosed with life-threatening arthritis, dealing with a rebellious teenage daughter. Yet she acts arrogant, self-centered and short tempered due to life throwing so many chances for her to mature and learn from experience.
If the author's intention is to reflect life in reality, how certain people act the way they do during crucial times then this book's a success. But I'd rather spend my time reading about a person who makes the most of what she has. Not being a selfish, immature version of her teenage self.
I'm afraid I am unlikely to read the next book. It's a good idea but it just didn't work for me.
I just couldn't get that thought out of my head. I felt the writing was very similar in style and content to a Mills and Boon style book. I'm not knocking Mills and Boon books as they can be a good ice breaker when you're struggling with readers block. At least when you're reading a Mills and Boon book you know what you're going to get. A non taxing, very predictable read with not much depth to the characters or the story.
To be honest I expected a lot more from the story with the Author being Sara Gruen as I'd heard good things about her books. It was an easy read but was very predictable.
I didn't really empathise with any of the characters and didn't feel that any of them were that well developed. I definitely won't be in a rush to read the sequel.
