it appears that Bressan has a fondness for characters who are regularly drunk and take drugs.the way it was put across was so flippant and with such lack of concern or even consequences, that i was totally aghast.if anything it seems totally natural for the characters.whilst some might say this reflects real life-shouldnt the author take some responsibility in the way this is portrayed?(*SPOILER*)-for example one of the central characters is a doctor who is pregnant.she goes to a party, gets drunk and on the proposal of taking and an estasy tablet jumps right at it.further,the character remarks how good she feels and no thought is given to her unborn child which she intends to keep!also it appears that everyone at the party are high and drunk,there are even some men who attend without their wives as its 'not their kind of party".
infidelity also appears to be an occuring theme in Bressan's novels.most characters are doing this even though they say they love their partner!yeah stuff like this happens,but it seems that in the authors novels this is also a somewhat natural occurence,largely again with no true consequences given to the character involved.
i find that the characters are hardly likeable-not people you can say you would like as friends (well unless your goal in life features alcohol,drugs,more alcohol,cheating,lies etc!!)
its hard to relate to such a tale.Read more ›
