Brava, Valentine: A Novel,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Brava, Valentine: A Novel (Hardcover)
Unlike most of Adriana Trigiani's novels, "Brava, Valentine" did not grab me on page one. I kept reading and hoping I would get caught up in the book, but I never did. At the end, I thought, "Is this all there is?"
I found the story flat and never cared what happened to the characters. Consequently, I am not anxiously awaiting the final installment of the trilogy. The current "in" literary style -- the present-tense narrative -- is my least favorite, yet Trigiani's "Lucia, Lucia" is one of my favorite books. I hope Book Three of Valentine's tale is better Book Two.
Amazon's service was five-star. The book arrived exactly when promised.
