Customer Review

on 21 March 2005
I am so glad to read the poor review of this book. Yes, bits of it were good - the family dynamics between Vanessa, Kerry, Robbie et al were excellent but so much was confusing and cringe-worthy. There were also way too many characters to keep them distinct from each other.
Lorraine and her hippy mother - mother was utterly unbelievable and given that Lorraine was such a super-woman the interactions with both Luke and the invisible husband just did not work.
What was the plot line about the gay husband who was also a transvestite and went to gay Elvis nights? And the HIV scare. All totally and utterly unbelievable rubbish. It should all have been edited out as it only serves to make the author look homophobic.
Worst of all was the drug culture becuase this was key to the plot of the novel. What drugs was Stevie supposed to be taking - the methods of drug use and his reactions to not having his drugs just did not make sense?
The author needs to do her homework a lot better and find a much better editor. I would certainly hesitate before parting with money for another dose of this.
