This was recommended to me by another Delia forum member - and it was a pleasure to read from beginning to end. It's a 'road trip' novel with a difference - things go wrong, lives are changed, and innocence is lost. There's some 'adult' language and themes, so not for those of a delicate disposition, but please don't let that put you off.If you lived through the 70s, you'll recognise and remember most of the musical references, which help to give the story a sense of time and place - I'm more or less a contemporary of the protagonist, and it took me back to my late teens and all the angst that accompanied them!The setting is the USA - from New York to California, and many points in between (the journey is not a straight line from one end to the other - far from it!), and the main characters are girls in their late teens.This book will stay with me for a while - I found it hard to put down, and am about to go see what else the author has written. She has a way of making the characters and settings leap off the page - very immersive writing, and highly recommended!
I read The Bronze Horseman by PS a long time ago and really didn't like it. Not well written, very repetitive and romantic and not at all believable. Needed a good editor!I know it was very popular, so I'm in the minority here.I've avoided her multitude of books ever since!!Maybe a book set in the 70's would be more interesting - I might give it a go when I've finished my current books:)
Sounds interesting DG, I just looked at the summary. I must read it but first have to check do I already have it! I have a Paulina Simons in the unread pile of books - it could well be that one! Bought over a year ago which is why I can't remember.I need to slow down on the buying to allow the reading to catch up!
Oh I enjoyed that book very much and have read all the rest in the series. Actually have read all of Paullina's books as she is an author I enjoy .
