If you're one of those folks who reads a story and finds yourself yelling at the characters to JUST TALK TO EACH OTHER, then this will be fantastically rage-inducing for you. Frankly, even if you do find it rage-inducing, the story is cute and you might enjoy it regardless. The sullen teenager is written well, the secondary hero is adorable.
I'm not really sure why Max was "mad" or required "taming". With the exception of his odd fatalism, he seemed mostly reasonable. He's funny, considerate, intelligent, and charming. On the other hand, Kari was a far less charming heroine. It's difficult to imagine that she honestly feels justified in her choices and that she's completely unwilling to give him the benefit of a doubt.
There were a couple of things that were non-standard. One was how Max was almost always called by his nickname, Mad Max, and it got to be annoying. I suppose it was his sports moniker, but the over use tended to categorize him as little more than a sports jock, and took away from emotions that should have been the focus. Leave the Mad Max for career related scenes, but he would be more relatable as "Max" when he is relationship building.
Another thing that I noticed was that the clothes the men were wearing were often described in detail, but women's clothes were not. "Today he was dressed like a model for Gucci with his nicely textured, fitted shirt that was probably made of some sort of high quality Egyptian cotton. The shirt, along with his Italian gabardine slacks.............. . His Armani shades hung off the V of his shirt ............ On his wrist he wore an aluminum watch ..........." all to describe one outfit. While women were usually dismissed with "a skirt and a frilly top" or "..... wore a black pencil skirt and white blouse". Just different to have men's clothes described so well, and women usually wearing just simple clothes, often in black & white.Read more ›
