Although the blurb for this book likens it to novels by Dickens, this book doesn't measure up to the master. Somehow the characters were not compelling. Audience were supposed to have cried in when Dickens gave public readings of the passage describing the death of Little Nell. I cannot imagine any such response for anything in this book.
Nothing by Kyra Davis. That's for sure.
This book is awful. I think the author's income must come, not from sales of the book, but from advertisers. It is nothing but one brand name product placement after another.
In order to keep the book from petering out, the author makes the characters do things that are so stupid that you wonder why they are allowed out by themselves.
A very enjoyable listen. The narrator is great. Not at all your usual Wilkie Collins. Nothing supernatural, or dark. Just a well-writing, funny, romantic, sometimes satirical story of a charming young man with no particular calling making an unconventional beginning in life
