A great feel good book
The book was very repetitive but it was a great feel good book. I took a while to finish because its redundancy stalled me. In the end I thoroughly enjoyed it.
When I was in 6th grade, a great and ambitious student in my class wrote a novel about her horses. Despite the fact that it was repetitive and predictable, for a 6th grader without an editor or a publisher it was pretty impressive and I was proud of her.
I can now say that my 6th grade friend wrote a better book than an apparently famous author. I wanted to tear my eyes out reading this. How, how, how did this get published and why was it on the featured rack of my local bookstore?!?!?
Don’t read it.
I dearly love Danielle Steels books but this one is far too slow and very predictable! When I read Steel I can hardly put it down, no so this one. I know she’s working on several new ones so I’ll wait til the next.
