Reviews of A Woman of Substance

Overall customer rating: 3.500

terribly long and drawn out

by bookwomanAnnie on Feb 11, 2010

This is an interesting novel with lots of character and setting descriptions, but that's just what makes it tedious to read. Pages go by and the story line has not advanced much at all. Over and over we get various descriptions of Emma Harte's character traits. OK, may we need to be told this a few times so we don't forget, but not every time some new character is introduced into the story line who is going to be confronted by Harte's strengths and weaknesses. "The plot is fairly simple and you get it figured out real quick what devil is driving Ms Emma Harte. Watching how this devil gets played out is what the story is all about. If you want a long leisurely, middle-of-the-winter-with-nothing-else-better-to-do novel, then this one would work. For all I've said, it is readable, just takes a while. "Better suggestion is to get the 5 hour DVD. It has all the story and is much more interesting. You won't want to stop until the end of the DVD!


Great Reading
