1.0 out of 5 stars Beware the Tufted Duck Sept. 14 2005

Having just thoroughly enjoyed one of the books in Lydia Adamson's Alice Nestleton series, I looked forward to reading Beware the Tufted Duck. Unfortunately, this first book in Adamson's Lucy Wales series is so very disappointing that by the time I finished reading it, I was frustrated and depressed by the characters and angry at myself for spending the time to finish it.

As was mentioned by the reviewer from Midwest Book Review, Beware the Tufted Duck is told from the point of view of Lucy's unrequited lover, Markus Bloch, who is willing to go to any lengths to impress Lucy. Unfortunately, as the book unfolds, it becomes apparent that Lucy is not a very nice person; she is, in fact, consistently so bent on getting her own way that she is often rude and inconsiderate. One begins to question Markus' judgment and wonder how he could possibly be so besotted with Lucy, when she treats him as shabbily as she does.

I read, in part, to enjoy spending time with likeable, inspiring characters. Since the character of Lucy is remarkable only for her extreme audacity and her knowledge of bird lore, this book was a very unsatisfying read.
