Ms. Brimble's confrontational writing style suits her main character, Hannah Lauren to a `T.' Hannah tells her story in the first person, and seems to have more sharp points herself than a triangle. She's achieved in her field, (Finance) she's dumped the under-achieving, less-than-ideal boyfriend without regret... although, er...he does still seem to be living in her house. And, he's not all that willing to depart...
Hannah flips back and forth madly between being a tough-shelled over-achiever with a hard-heart to being an overly sympathetic, indecisive character who gains strength from self-help books.
Mark doesn't waffle at all; he comes across as a (slightly dazed) whiner with apparently nothing going for him at all. We have to wonder how Hannah ever hooked up with him in the first place. He also gives off an incredibly creepy vibe that only gets reinforced going forward. You start to feel like the miserable man is actually in the room with you.
Believable characters are Ms. Brimble's strong suit. Hannah immediately shares her challenges dealing with her rotund boss and associate Miss Willoughby. Things go from not good to worse, there, pretty quickly. And Mark still has trouble identifying a `no' as a `no' ...but all that's nothing compared to the challenge that lands before her! Just when she's turning that over in her mind, Jamie Young, from her past leaps back into her life. Or not, actually... because there really is history there, too.
The Sharp Points Of The Triangle is a non-stop high-speed soap opera about the tempestuous life of Miss Hannah Lauren, and not one moment of it is a bore! In the first paragraphs I felt certain the style would never be my favorite, and by page two I was chuckling and somewhere around page 20 I found myself howling with laughter and simply unable to put the book down. There are a lot of laughs here, but more; there's shared frustration, anger, and a good dose of lust as well. Even if you think this sort of thing isn't for you - The Sharp Points Of The Triangle, is the one to pick up to try something new.
