A roller coaster ride
on 21 May 2013
This book is almost like a collection of short stories that are linked from one to the next by a certain character. It is imaginative, original and captivating... It made me read on! The author has used her wealth of knowledge to create a range of characters and personalities that could symbolise "the sign of the times."
At times, I felt the characters were too stereotypical and I did wonder if people are actually like that (I obviously lead a sheltered life). But, I loved her use of languages, and cultures, to define certain aspects of the characters' nationality.
In the end, the plot lines fit together to form the masterpiece puzzle, and for me, it was ended on a very satisfactory note.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story, and would recommend of you enjoy books with a range of characters, and movies such as "Love Actually."
