I give up. I picked up Love walked in because I was looking forward to reading something light-hearted, but after 30 pages it's pretty clear to me that I will not enjoy this story at all.
Narrator one, a 30 something year-old, is a compulsive chatter. She's the kind of person who talks to you and you wonder "Why, why? How can I get away from this me-me-me bore?" At least this is how she made me feel, anyway. She tries to be funny, but you can tell she's trying, and I find that annoying. She's also the stereotypical 30 something that's looking for Mr Right, who looks at other's babies longingly and goes vintage-shopping with her friend (and tells you about it like it's the most amazing thing she's ever done). She also describes how her girlfriend rolls her eyes when she hears that she, the Narrator, has indeed found Prince Charming and how upon meeting him she heard the bells ring... I rolled my eyes too.
Narrator two is an 11-year-old girl obsessed with the orphans in classical novels. It's not that I dislike her, but I don't find her interesting enough to want to know more about her story.
I'm surprised this book has got so many four and five stars, and more surprised still to read people who consider this "good writing"; I guess we all look for different things in a book, and we certainly have different quality standards. But hey, I'm only commenting on this having only read 30 pages or so......Continua
This one was really hard for me to read. The author's constant side stories left me lost and going back to see what she was originally trying to say and the constant references to movies and stars was really annoying. I'd bypass this one if I were you....Continua
