That is perfectly stunning in its awfulness. It is so awful you cannot abandon the book. Much as you would like to, the angry reader in you continues on. Why? It’s simple really. It is because you are wishing death on the characters. After all, they have eaten away a portion of your life with their whining so doesn’t death seem like a perfectly reasonable trade off?
Beach Trip by Cathy Holton is the newest addition to novels of this type. It centers around four self absorbed fortyish women who re-unite at the beach house of oneof them to relive and revive their college friendships. They are all successful in their own rights and yet, the need to constantly complain is ever present. One of the main characters is so vague and child like that you want to slap her. What sort of woman gets lost while she is shopping? In her own hometown? And no, there is no Alzheimer’s going on here. But there is a lot of self medication.
By the end of this book you think that you are going to get what you want; character revenge, but it won’t even let you have that satisfaction.
