I always got a thing for chick-lit and I never forget to check out chick-lit shelf every time I visit bookstore. So, when I saw this new-translated plum Sykes novel (well, It’s been a long due, though) I have to buy it, since I really love her previous book Bergdorf Blondes.
But, OH-GOD, this book is so awful..haha.. it feels like Ms. Sykes losing her witty sides. I enjoyed her heroine as rich and spoiled princess, the wealthy society and all of those socialites life. but on Bergdorf Blondes her heroine, even tough she’s typical spoiled princess but she’s seems have purpose and pretty much likeable character.
But on Debutante Divorce, Sylvie Mortimer is like an empty shell and too shallow for my taste, she’s like yammering in the whole book…haha.. or maybe it because the story itself somewhat doesn’t even have a plot… it feels like watching overly-rich young woman complaining about her “too harsh” life. And of course, the character has a lack of personality.
Well, even though Plum didn’t lose her “mocking-style” overly superficial dialogue (which I love) but the lack of plot and character’s personality makes this books very forgettable.
