But the true magic in her books is creating believable characters in unbelievable settings and making it all work out. You care about them and want to follow them to the end.
The Girl, the Gold Tooth, and Everything has a mystery element through most of the book that keeps you trying to figure out what is happening, what will happen, and how can this be. The characters, both Mina and others, are so well-drawn. I know somebody like that, you'll think. You feel Mina's unease at her untenable situation, and you want her to take control of her life again, and when she does, you cheer her on. The magic realism touches are the fairy dust on the story. Loved this book!
I found the tone of the book to be pretentious. The characters were poorly and unevenly developed. The plot was fragmented and many of the paths it took were entirely unnecessary. (i.e. the conflict between the older and younger neighbors--it added nothing of importance and was just annoying.)
Unlikely behaviour by minor characters was also an annoyance. Anyone else flabbergasted that a pediatric nurse said "ew" about vomit?
Just generally a poorly crafted book with little to recommend it. Feels like I wasted my time waiting for it to redeem itself.
I really had trouble putting down this book because I wanted to know what the heck was going on! I needed to know why Mina had amnesia, whether she would ever get her memory back, if her husband was as loyal as she thought, if the old lady down the street was the helpful neighbor she claimed to be, if hippy Harriet was a cooky as she seemed and if Emma would color Mina's entire house with crayons. I LOVED the portrayal of Emma from which it is clear that Francine LaSala has children. Emma was a handful but so comical that my biological clock was ticking out of control while reading. And when Mina went off on the debt collector and repeatedly dropped the "F" bomb, I was laughing hysterically.
The Girl The Gold Tooth and Everything is a really entertaining, engaging and unique story with romance, mystery, humor and, yes, magic. I highly recommend.
I discovered this book as part of a chick lit promo, so was expecting a straight-up chick lit/rom-com type of story. It was a fun surprise to find a quirky, psychological mystery/thriller. The author does a great job with character development - lots of interesting secondary characters here - and also has a knack for setting the mood. She keeps you guessing with a plot packed with twists and turns. I had no idea where the story was going and couldn't wait to see what would happen next.
I look forward to reading more by this author!
