Rated of 5
This book was not that good. There were about 250 unnecessary pages. This novel was not spell-binding at all, if I were not required to read it for class, I would have stopped within the first 10 pages. The 'who done it' aspect was horrible, the plot was predictable, the 'magical world' created by Alice Hoffman was merely that of a B-grade movie. As far as this book being a journey of three people, the journey really doesn't take you anywhere. As far as the main female character is concerned, she isn't a dynamic character, she gains and loses a friend in a short period of time, not a big journey. Two people find love, which is predictable. The man who endulges in only physical passion falls falls in love with a woman who rushed into engagement with a man who proved to be merely convienant. Once again, definately B-grade movie material. So buy this book if you want, I wouldn't.
