Another feature of the writing was that every paragraph is densely packed with ideas – descriptions, jokes, references – and this made it impossible to skim. I can certify that I read every word of the book; I had no choice. Because each paragraph and page is so densely packed with ideas, one is forced to concentrate intently. This does not, however, slow down the reading; to the contrary, the reading goes very fast and this may be partly due to the very smooth editing. The sentences just tumbled out – one after another. There were no hang-ups – instances where one had to go back and puzzle out what the authors were trying to convey. Once I returned to the book, I zipped through sixty or so chapters (some of them are quite short) in just a couple of days.
For me, the story really took off when Teri married Dan and had to contend with Dan’s daughter Victoria and the conflict arising out of that triangle. The various conflicts arising out of Teri’s personal choices and the consequences thereof were the engine that drove the book. Teri was a piece of work, a unique character. Did she deserve what she got in the end? You’ll have to judge that for yourself. (As for the very end – the final page – the authors pull off the rare feat of letting you know exactly what happens next but making it look like a cliffhanger. Don’t try this at home.)
We Americans are always amazed at how congenitally polite the British are. Some of the situations presented in “A Falling Friend” would have engendered much coarser language and perhaps more violent reactions had the book been written by an American. One wonders what the authors have in mind for the sequel. Higher stakes, more tension, more chaos…one can only hope. They certainly have the language skills to pull it off. Looking forward.
Both Lee and Teri make decisions based on their ego but Lee is more observant to the world around her. She can see when Teri’s decision take her down the wrong path and can predict the dire consequences of her behaviour, consequences that Teri does not seem to see coming. As in everything life, Lee cannot force Teri to see what is coming, she can only chose to stand beside her friend and support her choices.
This was a fun story that really brings to light how a lack of empathy can blind a person to the consequences of their own choices. Choices they will then have to live with forever.
Teri and Lee are quite opposite in personalties. Teri is definitely the more selfish one and I think she forgets that everything doesn’t revolve around her. She expects everyone to drop everything at the drop of a hat for her and overall expects a lot more than she really should.
Though both women have their issues, especially in the love department, I did at times wish I could bang their heads together. They seemed to be quite immature when it comes to the matter of love. Not sure whether it’s a good or bad thing though that I think a lot of women will actually relate to the pair. They did remind me of myself when I was younger, though luckily I think I am more mature than that now. Or maybe thats just wishful thinking!
I did find the story slightly slow to start with but as I got more into it I started to enjoy the trials and tribulations of what life was throwing at both ladies and it turned into an enjoyable and at times humorous read.
Very glad to see that there is another book on it’s way.
My thanks to the authors for a copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
