Journal Entry 5 by wingDelphi_Readerwing at Δελφοί - Delphi, Fokida Greece on Friday, July 31, 2020
Sometimes it's nice to read a light book among more serious stuff and I guess this one is fine if you are into chick-lit, but...

Let's face it, the whole premise is kind of ridiculous, all the characters are too silly, immature and superficial, major threads of the story are very predictable, while the whinings , especially of Dee and the dialogues among the sisters and between the sisters and everyone were at times too ridiculous and childish and/or too farfetched.
I'm not sure I'm much into all this meditation/contemplation thing or talking to god thing either, I can't see how one could connect without having one or adopting one belief system more or less, or how an atheist could make some choices Rose made. All characters seem to make silly or forced choices, they felt carton-box to me, Fleur and Daniel included and I don't see how some characters would fall in love for some others. I think it's hard to believe that 50 years old women have never think about death or that women on their late 80s who have never manipulate their daughters to bond while living, are doing so after dying! I don't believe that Michael would stick as he did and in general I don't find convincing nearly everything said and done and been in this novel.
The very end was predictable,abrupt and far too full of hyperbole in its details too.

I found parts of the book kind of amusing and alright to read withour thinking, just for pleasure, but often the books was too silly or boring.
Maybe the problem is me, not been much into this kind of books. I think people fond of this genre would find this a very decent read.

Thank you once again for sharing russbaum!
