Should Have Been a Short Story
I've actually read Feist before reading this book. I read his Magician series and remember being entertained. However, this book lacks a lot. His 'reality' fiction was very unreal. The main characters are a family who moved from California to a farm in upstate New York. The (main character?) daughter is an heir to some 80 million dollar fortune from her grandmother. The father is a screenplay writer and the mother is an out-of-work theater actress. Go figure. Too many cliché¿s to count. I agree with the review that stated this was more like a made-for-TV movie (like to add: on the Lifetime Channel). The sexual and language content was inappropriate. I'd have to say it was there as candy for pubescent readers who was chomping at the bit for Feist to branch out. Needless to say, I managed to read the first 200 pages and speed-read the second half. It was a very simple, unbelievable story suitable for young readers who have parents who don't monitor what they read. If anything, it should have been a short story.
