it was ok

A few years ago, I read Sleep Toward Heaven by the same author after receiving a free trade copy at a conference. I loved the book, and thought it to be a wonderfully written complex story with three flawed but still amazing female main characters. I even bought the book for Gina, someone without a lot of time to read, so you know I really liked it. So I thought I’d try another and was really disappointed. This book sucked. This book reads like the book I would have written as a 16 year old, filled with all the I’m-so-cool-cliches of a hard living female journalist who even survives a beating in Mexico (totally unrealistic scene) and then goes on to prove herself in South Africa (cuz she’s still down with the people of the earth and all that)! I finished it in part to see if it redeemed itself in the end. It didn’t.
