I was deeply disappointed by this book. Sandra Howard's previous novels were well written & interesting, if not great literature - this is simply - dreadful.
It is badly written and has a chronic lack of narrative coherence - if I did not know better I would think it was bad satire. This is intended as serious literature but sadly Mrs Howard appears to have mislaid her mojo and instead gives us a hideous glimpse into the vacuous lives of the beautiful people..
The characters are self pitying, hysterical and have the emotional range of a 2 year old.
The plot is preposterous and the achingly bad sex scenes, of which there are many, appear to have been written to shock the readers of The Lady.
But if you like purple prose and a good chuckle at risible metaphor - this book is for you.
Given the execrable quality of the material - the sugary voiced narrator did a passable job.
