The bewilderment began to diminish after I started the book, because I actually liked it. I liked it a lot. My wife tells me I was incommunicado the entire time I was reading it. From now on I will be more careful about placing books in categories that I suspect I won't enjoy. There wasn't a lot in it about tigers, but I didn't miss them.
The main character, Jordan O'Malley, is woman honed to toughness by a bout with breast cancer. She sets aside a rather mundane existence to find her brother and jar him back into reality from his worthless existence in an attempt to put her family back together. I'm not going to enumerate the trials she goes through because they form the backbone of Robinson's story. I'll just say that the author does a masterful job of dragging you along for the ride, and I guarantee that you'll be mesmerized. Her adventures are outlandish but totally believable under Robinson's skilful rendering.
Holly Robinson's personal story is the obvious inspiration for the story. She has also survived breast cancer that was diagnosed and treated early and saw it change her outlook on life. She moved to San Francisco from the East, as did O'Malley in the book, trekked around Nepal, and has a couple of brothers that she adores.Read more ›
Jordan has a breast cancer scare and although she gets through it ok, she is quite shaken by the experience. Her tranquil and safe life soon comes unraveling as she leaves her boyfriend and her sedentary life. She travels to San Francisco for the summer to spend some time experiencing life and hanging out with her wild best friend. She is also trying to track down her brother, Cam, who is a drifter and...well, you will find out when you read the book.
For a character who is described as always playing it safe and never taking any risks, Jordan is really gun-ho about getting in the action, taking risks (including risking her life) and just going full throttle as she deals with the challenges that life throws her way. I liked Jordan. Her actions and the narration describing her do not match. It is also as if the author imagined her one way, and Jordan came to life and decided on her own her own actions. She is a bit idealistic (and perhaps unrealistic) but, she is a bit relatable.
The plot occurs quickly, all the events occurring and developing quickly. From San Francisco to Nepal in no time. And this is the aspect of the book that makes it a bit unrealistic and hurried. But, it is entertaining and a quick read.
The writing, well, it was quite excellent. Holly Robinson is definitely a good writer. The narration flowed perfectly. The book was well edited (except for a few minor typos). Overall, I enjoyed this book and I would recommend it. It is great for a summer read.
