Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Supreme spinner of romantic yarns, Steel (Amazing Grace, etc.), in her lamentable latest fable of female courage, fortune, fame and fashion, features Oscar-winning actress Carole Barber, who, at age 50 and trying to write a novel, travels to Paris, scene of a tragic love affair 15 years before. On her first night in the City of Light, she's badly injured during a terrorist attack, after which she is left with no memory and no choice but to rebuild her life with a new perspective on her career, family and personal relationships. Steel flirts with themes of motherhood, second chances and writing, never settling on any one for long as Carole discovers the importance of pursuing her own desires while being generous to others and of keeping the men she wants in her life close but not too close. The best part is Carole's rehabilitation; as she reacquaints herself with family and friends, Carole the patient shows the patience author Steel lacks to probe beneath the surface. Though the message is murky at best, Steel delivers a sympathetic heroine and a scene or two that makes the heartstrings quiver. (Feb.)

Unfortunately, this volume is a total waste of one's valuable time. The entire volume can be totally summed up in one long sentence. It is very, very repetetive... and is a book that you felt you have already read. I listened to this on CD and noticed how short and simplistic her sentence structure was. I saw Ms. Steel recently interviewed on TV when she stated that she has "5 different books in progress at a given time." Might I suggest that she spend a little more time to create a quality product rather than just quantity. SISTERS was her only semi decent title in years.

This wasn't Danielle Steel best. It was formulastic . It starts with famous actress Carole Barber who clings to life and memory after a bomb explosion. Throughout the novel over and over again. She explains she doesn't have any feelings for ex-husband Jason. Yes we get it!But she has feelings for a person who refused to leave his wife for her. Go figure! At the end you kind of left hanging. Bypass this novel

I'm not going to go into the synopsis of this book as doing so will only prolong the agony of having to deal with this title. Ms. Steel's writing is not what it used to be. Perhaps if she turned out fewer books a year, she could concentrate on quality of her writing. The plot is loose and didn't hold my interest as I had hoped it would. Character growth is short and frankly unsatisfying. Again I can't help but suggest you read her earlier works as those were rich with characters, plot and writing.

I know I've said that I won't buy or read any more of her novels. But I keep hoping she'll go back to her style from years ago---when she did research on her stories, used good grammar and had a much better style in her writing. Now it's all about repeating the same information over and over again, using very poor grammer, way too many sentences that start with "and" and just very poorly constructed sentences.

However, I have learned to skim thru her books and just scratch the surface of her story. If you do that, it's not a bad story. It does have some intersting story lines---with the terrorist bombing in a Paris tunnel to her amnesia, her "old" heart throb, her children,etc. But you have to skim quickly to avoid all the things that have now marked Ms.Steel as a poor writer.

And to the person who wrote that this is an insight into Hollywood---don't count on it. She did absolutely no research on how this would have happened in the real world. And her main character having amnesia never would have said the things she said as she was "coming out" of her coma. This was not a medically sound story of brain injury patients. Being a nurse gives me the ability to critique that part of her story---and she did not portray a realisic post-traumatic brain injury----not even close.

I do not recommend this book to anyone. I can only hope that Ms. Steele would take the time to read reviews from readers and learn that we're not happy with her new style of writing----and her mass productions of way too many books that are becoming less and less interesting. Perhaps if we stop buying and reading her novels, she'll either retire from writing or go back to her previous novels and re-capture that side of her talent. We can only hope. She was at one time a very talented writer. What happened?

In a moment of supreme weakness, I checked this book out of the library. The jacket synopsis sounded somewhat interesting and I had a few days off from work. Here's my advice. Reading the synopsis gives you the entire gist of the novel without having to read another page.

I agree with those who mentioned the insane use of commas! What's amusing is that in another Steel book I reviewed, I noted the total lack of commas. Rather than have an educated editor put them in the correct places, someone just threw in commas so they'd be there. Great job.

I also found some glaring errors in the text. In one hospital scene, Steel meant to write that Stevie was sitting by the bed, but wrote Carole instead. Carole was sitting beside her comatose self in the hospital? Was she suddenly ghosting herself? I couldn't quite get past that visual.

I actually finished the book and I'll tell you how I did it. From about page 150, all I read was the dialogue, skipping all the repetitive descriptive passages! I just wanted to see if the lovely, serene, and wonderful Carole would regain her memory and find the love that she so richly deserved!

At one point, I vowed never to read another DS book, but now I read them because it's so much fun to write these reviews! Sheesh... do I need a life or what?

This was one of the worst stories I've ever endured. The characters were too superficial, the author repeated the same things many times over, as if the audience can't recall key points made just a page or two earlier. I listened to the audio book and found it very frustrating.

I agree with another reader. This book was boring and very repetitive. I felt like I was reading the same descriptions and sentences over and over. And I was! Total disappointment which surprised me - D.S. is usually very good!
