For example, I disagree with most of the reviews here that say the initial part of the novel is boring, I actually think the opposite is true.
What threw me off was the fact that the sexual scenes in this novel came up so abruptly that it felt like the situational equivalent of sitting down and watching a prime time show which was then abruptly interrupted and replaced with a hardcore porn flick.
These scenes could have been transitioned into much better. It makes him seem like a mysoginistic sex addict with no explanation as to why he's blowing his money and bedding women. The man is not a robot (he has an active twitter account) but he makes himself seem robotic when he doesn't explain the emotion or the mental anguish his job has cost him and connect the threads on how that leads him into his sexploits.
The other complaint is that the synopsis literally gives away the whole story. I felt like I didn't even have to read it because I already knew everything.
The pros here is that I actually thought the dialogue and scene descriptions were done pretty well. I think with a good editor and some decent Beta readers this piece really has potential. I would not however consider this a final draft.
Valid criticism of that particular moment in the history of Marbella aside, the tale is clearly focused on how the consequences of actions taken without forethought and a lack of language skills in a foreign country can combine to radically change the fortunes of a visitor in an instant. This story is as valid today, as a moralistic tale, as it was when the events occurred twenty-five years prior. An interesting read.
