Or you just didn't notice I posted this review a year ago and Rebekah revived the thread now. Legolas Send a noteboard - 12/11/2010 11:10:47 AM
I also found the characters and their motivations to be overall repulsive. I didn't like either set of twins, and not having sympathy for the two young girls was one major downfall of the book for me. I just didn't care what happened to them, and I thought they were vapid and made ridiculous choices. (I think I look more for emotional connection to the characters than any other element of literary craft.)

Hm, they were somewhat strange, yes. I could mostly sympathize with them until that horrible scheme I mentioned in my review, though.
One exception for me was the minor supporting character of Martin and his estranged love Marijke. I found his character's growth to be interesting and touching.

Yes, those two were definitely among the better characters, even if I found their plotline a bit detached from the main story - at times you wondered what the relevancy was.

I see. That's very cheap indeed, particularly at the current exchange rate. *NM* - 26/10/2009 06:48:40 PM 643 Views
