The weirdest week of my reading life!
on 29 September 2013
I can only say that this book was strange in the extreme. It started out really well, with Daisy going to say at her friend's house while her friend, an Oscar winning actress was out of the country filming. She meets up with Molly who takes her under her wing and decides to take her on a shopping spree to get a "new" her! All good. Then, the book just goes a bit weird, with loads of different characters being thrown at the reader and Daisy becoming famous, simply because of a dress she wears. She quickly becomes tabloid fodder and then all hell breaks loose! The real tragedy of this novel is that, deep down, there is a brilliant story, with a woman who is striving towards a new life and looking for new experiences. The reactions of her daughter, who is SO straight, it hurts, are very real but everything else in the book is just too much - too confusing, too many characters, too much going on. At one point I felt like I must have taken some of the mind-altering drugs that the characters in the book were taking because I felt like things were happening around me but I had no idea what was going on and who anybody was! A strange, strange little book. . . and I don't even know if I am glad I made it to the end! I can only say that I am delighted that it was free when I downloaded it!
