    You know when you read a book, and you anxiously turn pages with excitement This was missing at every step of the way, and in every imaginable way So generic was this story and just in general, very, very disappointing I don t at all aim to put authors down in my reviewing process, but this was just plain bad I m afraid to say. Unrealistic is ok in fiction, as often that s what it s all about most of the time, but not when delivered with zero attempt of anything it s just simply a slap in the face of the reader We were told everything with no attempt at pizzaz or dressing up at the least I don t know what happened here I can t even attempt a quick synopsis I knew what was happening, going to happen and what did happen This is not reading for pleasure I m not sure diehard fans would even be happy with this Never mind Onwards and upwards Have to force my chin up

    Typical Danielle Steel, I always read her newest book, and every time, I say it s the last Ultra rich couple, loses everything, wife leaves, hubby devastated Family issues, but everything is always devastatingly difficult, Peter is destitute but seems to have money to fly to London, LA, Spain, etc Falls in love with his exSister in law, who is tiny and beautiful and so delicately fragile, yet strong Shall I go on Every page is filled with such adjectives and she repeats previously stated facts over and over For awhile, the story line had me, but toward the final chapters, you know how it will end Everyone is shockingly happy, blah, blah, blah Can t wait for her next book.

    Please, someone at Delacorte Press edit Ms Steel s next book Her style of writing is ridiculously repetitive, and I ve taken to skipping over the endless restatements of the same darn thing Once again, Ms Steel has created characters who live in a make believe world Yes, the story had the potential to be interesting when the protagonist, Peter, loses his Wall Street job as a result of the financial market collapse Suddenly, he s paying alimony and child support, but he s still spending money Never seems to worry about the mundane side of being unemployed how will he pay for health insurance How long can he survive without income Hard to relate to his life my heart just did not bleed And per usual, the book has a very tidy ending as if the readers didn t see that one coming Had to laugh that she named 2 characters Maggie and Lisa I kept thinking she d introduce someone named Bart, Homer or Marge Think Ms Steel is a fan of The Simpsons

    I have not read a Danielle Steel book in a long time, but I remember clearly always loving her writing I don t know what happened Either I grew up, or she has lost her touch This obvious tale of twin brothers who are diametrically opposed in every way was predictable and so very slow But worse than that, it was so repetitive, I felt like pulling my hair out Doesn t she realize that she keeps saying the same things over and over ANDher favorite word seems to be and She starts a sentence with it, then makes it a compound sentence by joining two thoughts with the word and, only to start the next sentence with the word and.and, and, and, it becomes so annoying, it s distracting I resented this book I guess that s not fair However, I actually had faith it would be an enjoyable read because of my prior experiences with this author s work but was completely disappointed by its amateur problems that repeatedly took my attention away from the story It went on far too long, over 300 pages, only to wrap up the climax in a few pages It held no surprises I just cannot recommend this book Do yourself a favor and stick to Ms Steele s earlier work In my opinion, this one really misses the mark

    I had never read anything by Danielle Steel before and I was a little apprehensive about reading this one as a lot of the time when an author has a large number of books published there is generally a lower quality to the stories However, I found Prodigal Son to be a very enjoyable read.Danielle Steel has this really nice style of writing It just flows on really nicely and I found myself flicking happily through the pages and really enjoying the story that Danielle Steel was weaving.The story itself is pretty straight forward and the revelations just unravel and then the consequences of those things get explored I have to say that I really did find the book enjoyable but the subject matter is a little bit on the heavy side but I feel like this is a softer novel.There were a couple of times where I wanted to yell at Peter because he was being so blind I think that was also kind of good because it matched with events in the book It s really hard to talk about some of the things because I don t want to give anything away.I really enjoyed Prodigal Son, it was just such a nice story to read and not wanting to give anything away, as the story progressed further, it got so intense.

    I feel that this book could have been fifty pages All the other pages in the book are just Danielle Steel repeating what she had previously stated It just blows my mind that so many people actually praised this book I feel that maybe if you have memory problems and you need things constantly repeated that you might find the book enjoyable or pleasurable to read I did not find this pleasurable, only highly annoying I also found it painful that the first 50 pages of the book was about poor Peter and how he had such a horrible life because he was dyslexic and he had a mean twin brother I heard his sob story so many times because that is ALL Danielle Steel does is repeat, repeat and repeat herself that I couldn t care less about his struggle I mean, it s not like his mom was shooting up drugs and pimping him out It s obvious that Danielle Steel has a white upper class perspective on issues that people struggle with.

    Gutes Buch, leider habe ich nur einen Bruchteil verstanden, da ich der holl ndischen Sprache nicht m chtig bin.Trotzdem erkennt man das dieses Buch eine Herzensangelegenheit der Autorin ist Die Gef hle der Autorin sind multilingual verst ndlich Trotz den sprachlichen Barrieren hat mich dieses Werk zu Tr nen ger hrt Die Gef hle, die von diesem Werk ausgehen, lassen mich die Ohr ab Aktion von Vincent van Gogh verstehen Bei so vielen nicht verst ndlichen holl ndischen Worte w rde ich mich auch meines Geh rorgans entledigen.Vermutlich handelt diese Perle der Literatur von dem Verlust eines m nnlichen Nachkommen.Dieses einzigartige Kronjuwel der holl ndischen Literatur wurde ich auf einer Bildungsreise in der T rkei aufmerksam Ich empfinde es als suboptimal, das solche literarische Meisterwerke in den anatolischen Untiefen verborgen liegen Diese Werke wird von mir mit f nf von f nf m gliche Gestirnen bewertet.03.05.2019, nach 8 Bieren follow le_suti

    Even though I did finish this novel somehow I am adding it to my tried to read didn t like bookshelf It has been quite a while since I left a one star rating And it s not so much that this is a terrible novel its just not for me I m sure there is an audience of readers who are just fine with being watered down, with constant repetitiveness and reminders of nuggets that have no later revelation Not to mention a level of detail and background on granular items such as recipes and menus and clothing materials I am also sure that there are readers who are perfectly fine with a book that climaxes about 70% of the way through An unnoticed climax that does not offer any surprises or enticement for the reader and the remaining balance is the longest mundane epilogue known to literature.It s just not for me I am going to have to follow this up with a violent espionage thriller in order to feel whole again

    Good short story that if edited would have been about 50 pages long I felt insulted by the author every time she repeated over and over facts peviously stated in the story Is this a book for slow mentally challenged people that needs to be reinforced with repetition to igest the info The publisher did not edit this book Or is it the fame and the need of an author and its publisher to fulfill the year s quota as per contract Now I can understand how an author publishes 3 or books They just have to write anything that appeals in the 1st few chapters just like a newspaper article Grab the reader s attention and then repeat as a filler to produce 400 pages Give a dog a bad name Her fans will devour anything she writes Shame on the publisher and shame on her.Prodigal Son was one of the 4 books written in 2015 and she plans to write 6 books in 2016 2 of the books are out I can only imagine that they are not well written nor edited like this one.I m an avid reader and this is the first book I read from this author Will I ever read her other novels
