Small Island by Andrea Levy: I am not sure quite how to review this book. I think it was extremely well written and easy to read. That being said the story itself was not appealing to me. At least one-half of the story was not appealing, I did enjoy the other half immensely. This is where I don’t blame the author but me as a reader because it was my POV’s that stood in the way of taking the story as it was presented. I did feel a connection to these characters and maybe that is why I got so aggravated at Queenie (yes her story was the one that just annoyed me to high heaven). Though her reactions to her choices I felt were real, her choices to begin with are what drove me batty. So, like I said hard to actually review the story but the writing and presentation were superb!

Review: This is by far my favorite book of the series so far. I do not want to give the plot or the story away so I am going to be as vague as possible in my review. Things I loved: More Stevie Ray and Aphrodite! In fact, I would almost say this book was their book. As they are my two favorite characters in the series it made this book that more enjoyable. I loved how PC flushed these two characters out by both growing them as individuals and having them work together more. I think in the series in general, these are the two that have grown the most and made the most of the changes in their lives. They both still have annoying qualities that I would cover a little later. Less Z, which I know is supposed to be the heroin of the series but honestly her character has never really caught on with me. In fact, I find myself loving the series in spite of her and her boy issues. Though, the end gave me hope that in the next book we might see Z developed more and on the same level as A and […]
