As I said, I quite liked Cheryl before I read this, now I just feel very irritated by her. The main thing that really gets on my nerves throughout the book, is how NOTHING is her fault, she is totally blameless. She plays the victim all the time. She doesn't even take any responsibilty for not doing any preparation or research for climbing Kilimanjiro (sp?), which is absurd really. Where was her reliable gut feeling then? I did really feel for her during her awful Maleria, but she could have made a small nod of appreciation to the Doctor's and Nurses that helped save her life, but no, only a slight nod to her friend Derek, who just appeared to indulge her throughout the book. It didn't help that I read this straight after the wonderful Rupert Everitt book, which is way more honest and reflective. So, sorry Cheryl but I didnt like or enjoy it. You didnt deserve what Ashley (pathetic and weak) did to you, but at the price of this book, the reader deserves better too. But I guess that's not your fault either
