Predictsy

The first book was better. This one was very predictible. And the author went into overkill on the adjectives... a bit much.

Let Down

So I enjoyed the first book so much I followed up with purchasing the 2nd book within a few days. In between I had listened to The Address: a novel I realized how similar book 1 and Address are. In Daughter, Eve did not seem like the same woman from book 1. She was weak and complaining. She did things that did not make sense - maybe to prolong the story, but in book 1 her actions were more logical. I did not like the Eve in book2. I also did not agree with her taking Patrick back or the way she treated him. She was very selfish. He was supposed to love modern living which had its benefits but he missed 1885 and she had no compassion for his feelings. I could not believe they took medicine and expected people to administer because she asked. And buying a ring on eBay was dumb. Why not take back uncut stones? Its like the book had a good outline but the fill was flat and done quickly and didn't give time to rise, I was disappointed Patrick didn't follow up on the Santa letters. I didn't like the way the Dr treated Eve or her son acted - just prolonged unnecessarily. There was a great outline and there was such a better book in the material than we got. I do not plan to read book 3 because I hope Eve goes back to 1885 and gets left there,

Not as good as the preceding one

There're some series that I enjoy each part of - from the beginning till the end. This is not one of them. Don't get me wrong. I enjoyed it overall but I started enjoying it somewhere around the half of the book and that is quite a long way, isn't it.

First of all, I struggled to understand their decision. Maybe I just come from another world (he he), but that seemed just too naive to me, Anyway my most serious accusation is that it's just too much repeatable. I know all those writing lessons tell you where the climax is and what is the scheme but I can cope with that. Although I think this isn't true. It's better when the scheme is not that visible. Anyway. Eve again had to had her bad guy coming after her, wanting much more from her, because well, you know in the past she hardly could get over her first marriage but now everyone wants her. The pace could live without that. Really. And that's just an example.

Sorry for another spoiler, but there's just a small part in which a daughter is flirting with her father. And I found it disturbing. You might too. Although I think I understand what was the idea behind it, I still find it tasteless. For two reasons at least. But enough of spoilers.

The second half of the book is quicker, with not so many clothes description, food, etc. And it starts being really enjoyable. Maybe my problem with the book was there from the very beginning. I just didn't fell in love at first sight. And I even regretted I gave it a go. But I persisted ;) In fact, I really like the second half twists of action and I even decided to get the third part as well. I just hope I won't regret it too soon :)
