Read in July, 2011

It was fairly entertaining, but I thought there was way too much drama. It cheapened the plot. The action felt like that of those so called "reality" shows. You know the ones where there's so much drama that it's obvious it could not possibly be genuine. That being said, I felt like the characters were unrealistic. Their attitudes were similar to the characters in the first book, but their reactions were way off! I found myself thinking who are these women and what planet are they from? I don't want to spoil the book, so I'll keep it vague. Robin's reaction to Sparrow - Come on! Bernie's reaction to Onika - I mean - I can certainly respect her decision, but would it have been that easy? There's another Bernie shocker, too. Don't get me started on that nursing Gloria scene - Who does that?

I finished the book, and I'll definitely see the movie (at home) if there is one. This sequel doesn't live up to the original, at all.
