it was ok

The Summer Garden is the final installment in the trilogy about Tatiana and Alexander’s “epic love story”. I have not read the other two books, but I sure hope they were more interesting than this one. This novel could have been summed up in 100 pages or so, but I guess the author thought an extra 642 pages of fluff was necessary. I would have preferred putting my head in the garbage disposal and turning it on, but that’s just me.

I took the liberty of reading some reviews on the other two books in the trilogy and, apparently, they were much more exciting. I probably wouldn’t dissuade someone from reading all three books consecutively – maybe there’s something I’m missing – but I can’t imagine any cosmic buildup to The Summer Garden that would make it more enjoyable. Reading about every mundane happening in a couple’s life is always excruciating. I’m only giving it two stars because I read it out of sequence. Good riddance.
