Customer ReviewsSee All
I have read two other of her books. Both were very good. But this one pretty bad. The first three quarters of the book was excruitiatingly boring. Then when something finally happened, you never really got caught up in it. The ending was not good, giving it an incomplete feel. Also wordy to the pint of nonsense, rambling on an on about things that had nothing at all to do with the story, although there really wasn't much of a story to begin with. I only gave it one star, because with this rating format you have to at least give it one star, otherwise I would have given it 0 stars.
