I don't think I've ever read a book with a more irritating writing style than this one. It was so vague and wishy-washy that I felt like throwing it across the room. Every chapter ended with either a question mark or an ellipsis. And all the questions inside brackets, the rhyming words, hearing her mother's voice (or was it just the wind sighing through the trees...?) -- it was maddening.

For example:

Het is een mooi boek over een gebroken gezin, redelijk vlot geschreven met een beetje humor.

Kate is een alleenstaande moeder met haar zoon Sam. Ze is op vrij jonge leeftijd haar moeder verloren. Ze blijft zich al die jaren afvragen wat er nu precies is gebeurd. Was het een ongeluk? Nu is het tijd voor een nieuwe liefdesrelatie. Kan zij de juiste man vinden? Kan zij haar leven weer op orde krijgen?

Ik twijfel tussen 3 en 4 sterren. Uiteindelijk voor drie sterren gekozen omdat ik wel wilde weten
Started off interesting, then became quite a boring, redundant book. full of superfluous rambling language and the same description from the protagonist over and over and over again.
