really liked it

Read in September, 2010

Normally I wont buy a hard cover...III wait till it comes out in paperback or borrow. But as I was reading the inside flap of the book of Juliet, it seemed to be told compariable to authors Barbara Erskine & Kate Mosse. The story is told in past/present as Barbara Erskine does with her books. Anne Fortier did a good job with this.The story also has a Labyrinthine structure which Kate Mosse does in hers which also was well done.Though the medieval parts are good,I found them not always exciting or riveting as I expected them to be.I also found the character of Romeo to be rather inmature and as I read further into the story I prefered the modern story line better. There were times that if I wasnt paying attention I would quickly get lost and have to flip back to find out who someone was to refresh my memory.I also found sometimes the dialogue to be a bit forced & out of character.
I really like the character Julie as she brought the humor to the story,but when the humor was displayed in the past it was out of place to me..too comic like. all & all it was a enjoyable read...I highly recommend for those who like mystery/suspense and a touch of romance.I look forward to future books by this author.
