4.0 out of 5 stars Serena the Sociopath!, 2 Aug. 2009
This review is from: Serena (Paperback)
I am still in two minds about what I thought of the novel. I found it a very slow read for some reason, the opening was full of fast-paced action and the ending chapters were real page-turners but I struggled the the middle part of the book.

The lead character Serena can only be described as something of a sociopath, and those familiar with the character of Lady Macbeth may recognise some traits and behaviours. Serena and her new husband George have arrived in deepest North Carolina to make money from the thousands of acres of timber. Serena will allow nothing and nobody to stand in her way of getting just exactly what she wants and when she wants it.

Serena has no middle ground - any one who crosses her will suffer and after she saves the life of Galloway, the most dangerous man in the camp, she has a protector and bodyguard for life.

I felt bogged down somewhat by the politics in the middle of the book - the in-fighting about how owns the land, who will develop it and how. There were many characters introduced in this part of the book and I found it difficult to remember just who was who, and who belonged to which side. To be honest, I didnt really care - I was more interested in Serena and wondering just what she would get up to next. During the book she shot bears and trained an eagle to kill snakes.

On the whole, a good read although I wouldnt rush to read more of Rash's work, I think I need to let this one digest for a while longer.
