Opinion/Comments: I bought this book while on holiday in Tenerife and finished it in a few hours. I just couldn’t put it down.
This is an amazing story with very interesting characters and an absolutely great plot. Barbara, who I think has some sort of personality disorder, steals the show completely.
Moral: Be (very) careful with those people trying to be your friends by keeping your secrets; Also, never ever have an affair or fall for someone younger or more immature than you.
Personal rating: 9/10
