    A reviewer

    I was also disappointed in this book. The only character that I found likeable was Pepper the 5 yr. old. I've read worse but still.........

    Crusie needs to write solo

    I love every Crusie book, I read them over and over again. But this book was nothing like her normal books. It was to much adventure and it got confusing. The main guy was unrealistic and hard to like. She needs to go back to writing solo!!!

    Not her Best

    Love, love, love Jennifer Crusie's writing, but this one was incredibly disappointing. The story was such a mess and the characters not interesting. I kept looking at the book cover to make sure that this was actually a Jennifer Crusie book. I don't mind that characters are not infallible, but I really couldn't understand the dynamics between the 2 leads. Sorry if you paid full price for this one.

    Who Are You and What Happened to Jennifer Crusie?

    I purchased this book with GREAT expectations. I absolutely LOVE Crusie's work and have found each of her books better than the last. Until now. Don't Look Down is so atypical I had a rough time believing Crusie wrote it. The only reflection of her previous work I noted was the amusing struggle of 'self' exposed through the silent musings vs. the outward dialogue of both Wilder and Armstrong. Beyond that, the dialogue (especially that of Bryce) was completely stilted and demanded more of a suspension of disbelief than I was willing to offer. I never quite got to the point where I cared about Pepper or Daisy--or, frankly, Lucy! The time period encompassed by the novel was, for me, far too brief to have resulted in the 'soul mate' relationship that supposedly blossomed. Sorry Jennifer...this was NOT your shining moment, but I haven't given up on you....yet!

    Wait for the paperback

    This is my least favorite of Jennifer Crusie's books. The plot is beyond implausible, as are the characters.Everything seems forced.
