Amy Jenkins should stick to script writing,
By A Customer
This review is from: Honeymoon (Paperback)
Like the other reviewers, I was really looking forward to this book's release because of the intelligent and poignant This Life. What a shock! Honeymoon it was not in my terms. Fluffy, Clueless and about as deep as a girlies' trip to Ibiza. It lacked any descriptions. I mean Honey went to MEXICO and went to the place where her parents died in a plane crash (naturally). But you had to really push those imagination dendrites here. There were no descriptions of the trauma, the scenery or the colour of the fiesta. What REALLY ANNOYED me was the continued use of Imagine..... I felt like I was at the cinema hearing the dialogue but with no picture... The characters are totally unbelievable especially Della who seems to have snogged everyone famous including Leonardo DiCaprio (yeah right, we don't believe that, even in a book) And who was Paul? My final questions are What was Honey's job? What was Mac? How did della meet Leonardo? And most importantly relating to the editing Who was Martha who suddenly appeared? Read the book and see if you agree with me. I think she was originally called Sophie but changed to Martha two paragraphs later. Sorry Amy Jenkins, it was not your best work. Stick to scripts.
