I'm reading this at the moment and struggling with it, it seems very repetitive at the start, I usually read her books really quickly but really can't be bothered with this one!

Does it get any better?? Should I just give up?

I am reading it at the moment and I am finding it quite dull. Very disappointed as she can write some really fast-paced thrillers. Am about half way so will continue to the end or until I don't care anymore.

Still think The Ladykiller is brilliant.

I haven't read that one, but all the others yes. I found the last one extremely repetitive (I forget the name, it was that memorable I left it on holiday) and just the same as all it's predecessors. They follow the same script don't they? Hard nut family, always a matriach, loads of kids, revenge, a dark secret, through a couple of generations, each generation repeated th last etc etc. Lots of "strange" (<---love that phrase!) beatings, growling males.

I suppose you could carry on for whatevers sake but I, for one, won't condem you if you toss it to the nearest charity shop.

Awight schweet'art? grin

Oh I cannot tell you how much I love "swallow your knob". I am still trying to find a suitable occasion in RL to use it. One day...

Righto, have just finished it and, in my considered opinion, it was a pile of shite. Deeply disappointing.

What a shame.
