Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Supreme spinner of romantic yarns, Steel (Amazing Grace, etc.), in her lamentable latest fable of female courage, fortune, fame and fashion, features Oscar-winning actress Carole Barber, who, at age 50 and trying to write a novel, travels to Paris, scene of a tragic love affair 15 years before. On her first night in the City of Light, she's badly injured during a terrorist attack, after which she is left with no memory and no choice but to rebuild her life with a new perspective on her career, family and personal relationships. Steel flirts with themes of motherhood, second chances and writing, never settling on any one for long as Carole discovers the importance of pursuing her own desires while being generous to others and of keeping the men she wants in her life close but not too close. The best part is Carole's rehabilitation; as she reacquaints herself with family and friends, Carole the patient shows the patience author Steel lacks to probe beneath the surface. Though the message is murky at best, Steel delivers a sympathetic heroine and a scene or two that makes the heartstrings quiver. (Feb.)

Customer Reviews

This book was boring and very repetitive.

Thank goodness I get them from the library now and don't waste my hard-earned money on them.

The plot is loose and didn't hold my interest as I had hoped it would.

Unfortunately, this volume is a total waste of one's valuable time. The entire volume can be totally summed up in one long sentence. It is very, very repetetive... and is a book that you felt you have already read. I listened to this on CD and noticed how short and simplistic her sentence structure was. I saw Ms. Steel recently interviewed on TV when she stated that she has "5 different books in progress at a given time." Might I suggest that she spend a little more time to create a quality product rather than just quantity. SISTERS was her only semi decent title in years.

This wasn't Danielle Steel best. It was formulastic . It starts with famous actress Carole Barber who clings to life and memory after a bomb explosion. Throughout the novel over and over again. She explains she doesn't have any feelings for ex-husband Jason. Yes we get it!But she has feelings for a person who refused to leave his wife for her. Go figure! At the end you kind of left hanging. Bypass this novel

I know I've said that I won't buy or read any more of her novels. But I keep hoping she'll go back to her style from years ago---when she did research on her stories, used good grammar and had a much better style in her writing. Now it's all about repeating the same information over and over again, using very poor grammer, way too many sentences that start with "and" and just very poorly constructed sentences.

However, I have learned to skim thru her books and just scratch the surface of her story. If you do that, it's not a bad story. It does have some intersting story lines---with the terrorist bombing in a Paris tunnel to her amnesia, her "old" heart throb, her children,etc. But you have to skim quickly to avoid all the things that have now marked Ms.Steel as a poor writer.

And to the person who wrote that this is an insight into Hollywood---don't count on it. She did absolutely no research on how this would have happened in the real world. And her main character having amnesia never would have said the things she said as she was "coming out" of her coma. This was not a medically sound story of brain injury patients. Being a nurse gives me the ability to critique that part of her story---and she did not portray a realisic post-traumatic brain injury----not even close.

I do not recommend this book to anyone. I can only hope that Ms. Steele would take the time to read reviews from readers and learn that we're not happy with her new style of writing----and her mass productions of way too many books that are becoming less and less interesting. Perhaps if we stop buying and reading her novels, she'll either retire from writing or go back to her previous novels and re-capture that side of her talent. We can only hope. She was at one time a very talented writer. What happened?

I'm not going to go into the synopsis of this book as doing so will only prolong the agony of having to deal with this title. Ms. Steel's writing is not what it used to be. Perhaps if she turned out fewer books a year, she could concentrate on quality of her writing. The plot is loose and didn't hold my interest as I had hoped it would. Character growth is short and frankly unsatisfying. Again I can't help but suggest you read her earlier works as those were rich with characters, plot and writing.

This was one of the worst stories I've ever endured. The characters were too superficial, the author repeated the same things many times over, as if the audience can't recall key points made just a page or two earlier. I listened to the audio book and found it very frustrating.

I agree with another reader. This book was boring and very repetitive. I felt like I was reading the same descriptions and sentences over and over. And I was! Total disappointment which surprised me - D.S. is usually very good!

Format: Hardcover
Another disappointing novel from Steel. As stated before in other reviews, the repitition runs rampant yet again in this book. Steel has lost the ability to write quality novels. I wonder if she or her publisher actually read what she writes anymore. Saying the same thing over and over, page after page is not worthy of a multi million dollar paycheck. There is nothing to this story. It drags on and on.

Steel should be donating every penny earned to charity from her last 10 books. She should be ashamed to have her name written on such drivel.

Perhaps Steel should read her early books, back when quality over quantity was evident.

DON'T waste your money on this one. I learned that lesson about the last 7 years or so. I expect very little from Steel anymore. Get the book from the library only costs me my time.

C'mon Danielle...WAKE UP or give it up.

Format: Hardcover
I was very disappointed. Like the other reviewers, it's very repetative. The author takes one idea, such as her husband leaving her, and writes about it in several different ways one after the other. I got the feeling after reading this book that there wasn't really enough of a story to fill the book so each memory Carole Barber had was discribed endlessly over many pages. The only exciting event in the whole book was when the terrorist came to her hospital room and tried to kill her. Unfortunately that was the only highlight to the whole story. I just got tired of reading the same events in her life over and over again just re-hashed in different ways. Pass this one over.
