It just went on and on, and on, far to wordy. The lead character is supposed to be a tv executive, but acts like a scared constantly whinging schoolgirl. I only made it thorough the first chapter and that was enough.
That the lead character. I wanted to like her, but her constant mental dialogue about how she didn't measure up was too much to take. As often as she talked about " having a set" even a steel "set " on her desk it was obvious they didn't work. I just kept wanting to scream at her " to pull up her big girl panties and deal" .
She didn't help, her voice was very dull, as the book went on with the lead characters very long mental dialogue about all her inadequacies, it all became too much. Far too annoying to endure the whole book.
Great annoyances, eventually I just screamed in sheer frustration and turned it off.
I got it at a reduced price in one of the daily deals, but you can be sure I well ask for a refund.
I have not read or listened to a lot of Fern Michael's books but this one seems real slow to develop. I found I had to concentrate too much to keep interested. The premise of the book caught my attention but I just couldn't stay interested. And I never related to the characters.
I felt my time would be better spent elsewhere. In fact I only made it half way through the book before I decided go return it.
I think I was put off by the narrator, something about her voice never held my interest very long.
It was a glimpse into life of the times, but the characters were not very likeable.
I found it very wordy. it seemed to go on a bit, and it was too easy to tune out.
Her accent fit the story and her characters were believable.
Not really if I hadn't gotten it on special for $4.95, I would have returned it right away.
All in all I was not impressed. Even at a reduced price it just wasn't worth it.
