Two and a half : Disappointed...
on January 8, 2017
I have big trouble finishing this book! I actually love this writer's work, but could not really get into this story because of the far fetched story line.
** SPOILER ALERT: I'm not talking about him marrying her and taking her to the mansion. I am also not referring to the weird staff he employs (however as a sub plot it's a bit weird) or that they now move in the circles of the super rich... No. I am talking about her coming from Africa, as the daughter of a missionery and then turn out to be a vegetarian... No, no and no. I live in (South) Africa and we LIVE for our MEAT. Believe me: if you grew up in an African Village, you will NOT be a vegetarian. Where in the jungle will you find your tofu etc which she effortlesly prepares for him? Nope. That really has put me off. She even converted half the village to vegetarianism....(?) Then: she comes from the African jungle, seemingly rarely visited the modernised world, but she has this magical ability to cut up a designer dress and convert it into a stunning little outfit she thinks to plain. Not buying it. There are just to many little things like him thinking to late: oops, I rather should have bought her a big diamond, and should have taken her on a honeymoon, now what are rhe people going to say..? Etc etc.
