it was ok
Read in January, 2011

It was a bit too ordinary for me. The kind and smart female character is lucky to have such a smart and loving husband. However the story about unhappy family (not with husband, more with the mother and a stepsister) does not really interest me. The dialogue and way of narrating are good, but probably the idea just bores me, an annoying stepsister and a mother who always sides her. Very annoying and nothing new.
When finally the main characters chose to solve the problem, the ending was way too short and there was no such happy story about what happens after all problems are gone.
I was flipping the page and shocked when there was nothing more written. It was that bad, the ending.
Maybe this book just wants to show how a person should bring herself up to fight the unjustness she got, but I would love to see a bit more fantasy, happy ending, fairy tale, whatever it is that usually makes a story become happy. So maybe this book is too realistic and boring.
