I looked forward to the publicatin of this book and never paid any attention to the Publisher's summary. Maybe I am an old fogey, but being like Sex ..Show More »in the City is not an attraction to me. And maybe that is why this book was not one of the best I have read by this author.
I found the main characters family relations and love pssions erratic. How can she so adore her grandmother and so hate her brother? How can she be so one sided as a lover in America where the two of them are young and building their careers and then be so relaxed in Italy with another man?
My sense is the book was not a complete story because of it being part of a trilogy. Too many fillers had to added to make it "big enough" by itself, yet many critical pieces are withheld to save for the next parts.
I could not tell if it was the Narrator or the Storyline-both fell short. I ordinary love both this Narrator and this Author but this book was flat. ..Show More » A predictable and disappointing story.
