This was an intresting take on Travel Fiction which can sometimes be a little bland. What started out as a relatively simple read quickly became very dark. Margaret carries enough suspense with her to keep the reader engaged (or at least engaged enough to find out why she's seriously crazy). Even the neatly bundled up conclusion didn't throw a bright light on an otherwise twisted story. Barr gets top marks for incorporating a dark tale into an otherwise subtly beautiful environment, use of interesting props (use of the child monitor to listen on her neighbors was pretty interesting)and characther development. What I didn't like was her style of bundling up the story to make a quick conclusion, the prospect of the main character going from bad to worse and the actual lack of likeable individuals in the story. All in all, for anbody going to Cuba, well......its probably worth a look at. Brighton, on the other hand, looked terrible.
