Top critical review
Oh pleeeze! sophomoric, juvenile, bland. Shall I go on?
on May 29, 1998
After reading the amazon reviews and being one who enjoys suspenseful novels, I bought the book.I should have bought lottery tickets. I've read 200 pages and don't think I can finish it. Was the author's brain soaking in syrup while writing this? Spare me the mother's high-horse, crap-don't-stink behavior. And Karen's childish dialogue becomes silly and laughable fast; serious in one breath, joking in the next. Please!
The worst part about this story (there were many to choose from)is that the author relates nothing in the dialogue to allow the reader to know when events are taking place. had the beginning not been prefaced with "dec. 1962", there is no way of knowing that's where this begins. And this flaw does no justice whatsoever to teh conversations amongst the characters.
Should I finish this book (doubtful), I may write a sequel to this review. But with so many books out there, I don't know...
