This book wasn???t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
I really liked "Gr??nne Skove", and was looking forward to this one. And what a letdown. Spine less "plot", bad story telling. Aamund has done so much better in her previous books.
What could Jane Aamund have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
She could have started by actually making a fascinating plot - make that ANY plot, which never happened. As the story drags it's feet along Aamund just kills off the characters when there she has no more use for them. One girl gets murdered on a street in Buenos Aires, the Danish girl gets her gaucho boy, Her parents, the two main characters suddenly get inflicted with cancer just when one thinks the story is about to catch on. And just like that, the whole shooting match is over. Please no sequel here !!
How did the narrator detract from the book?
By telling the whole story in a nasal monotone. Believe me, this "story" needs all the help it can get. On the flip side, I do not believe any narrator could have saved this dog.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Sadness and disappointment, knowing how well Jane Aamund can write and sound. I just cannot believe she would let this product leave her hard disc.
Any additional comments?
Above is enough criticism. I have plenty of respect for Aamund. Just listened to the interview "Lys i Livet" on audio book. Entertaining stuff. She is funny and has had her share of life's curve balls, that she keeps deflecting and surviving in the process. I wish her well, and I hope she has some good books still left in her. She does not bat 1000 every time she is at plate, and this is a good example.
