I am torn about leaving less-than-glowing reviews, I feel for creative souls that put their work out there for others to critique. At the same time, honest reviews allow potential readers to decide if this is the kind of book they are looking for. I also hope to perhaps encourage authors to write stories that hold-up without the foul language, that leave a little to the imagination on some topics and where young women (and older ones) don't sell themselves so cheaply.
1. Excessive foul language: really it was not needed except to lengthen the book considerably.
2. Uncle Harry: He really grated on my nerves, besides cussing with just about every breath he took his mind was constantly in the gutter, not a likable character at all.
3. The "other" woman: Really, she rattles on about "God's will" while she had been having an affair with a married man and not one bit sorry for it, plus she was portrayed as being some kind of saint, as was the cheating husband.
3. Nate: There was nothing about this character that I liked, while I understand it is natural to defend a parent, he was old enough to realize that his mother was as much to blame for his little sister not having a steady father as the man she was cheating with, they BOTH made the choice and he was wrong to say that whether or not she was willing is not the point, it is exactly the point. Plus I find it hard to believe that the main character would throw herself at a man who constantly blamed her for something she had no control over, his attitude was sickening and she should have told him to get lost.
The whole thing left me with a bit of a depressed feeling that took a little while to shake off, I guess it was because this cheating couple was made out to be a pair of saints by a whole town and made it to seem like what they did was all right.
The father is described as weak (he tried to please everybody) because his own father was tyrannical and narrow-minded. The best part of the book is the description of how the behavior of both the father and his brother could be explained by their childhood. Unhappily, as the grandfather is also dead, this remains very sketchy. It is easy to understand weakness, but the author avoids the main difficulty: how can we ever understand a pathological liar?
There is a little girl with some learning disability. The description of what she can do and say is not consistent.
I have difficulties with the daughter who views everything in relation to herself: "How could you do this to me?" is her first thought when confronting her mother or confronting the mistress. In addition, I thought that her sex life was nauseating.
It irritates me that nobody has any morality in the book: there is an uncle who is drunk all the time, an insensitive boyfriend, a lover allowing us a peak into some awful macho sex scenes, a patronizing way of talking about servants. As a result, instead of making me feel more understanding and compassionate for the double life, everybody in the book got on my nerves, including the author.
