Book Review #911
The Reluctant Heiress by Eva Ibbotson
Rating: two stars (out of four)
This book was hard to get through because of all the names and places that were foreign. I also felt compelled to skim through long passages that were overly descriptive. The story was interesting, but I never fell in love with the characters and I didn't see the appeal for Guy. I wanted the story to move faster and I was unsatisfied with how the plot progressed between the two main characters. It felt like a lot of details that would have made their relationship more believable were left out. I was disappointed with the ending and felt like there should have been more closure or something. This book was okay, but I would definitely skip over for a recommendation.
