Review: The Road to Paradise

Well, this book… I decided to review it based upon the cover, which I found very appealing in an old vintage way. And, it was considered Christian fiction, so I thought I probably wouldn’t have to deal with anything “trashy”. But, it goes down as one of those books that I wish I hadn’t wasted my time reading. I found the plot to be incredibly boring, ridiculous, under-developed, and childish. The characters were sooo annoying too. You’ve got a stubborn, but weak can’t-get-over-the-accidental-death-of-his-father park ranger, the stubborn, hard-headed, foolish, allows herself to be victimized visiting single rich girl, & the abusive, my-way-or-the-highway fiance of before mentioned single girl. That combination was about enough to make me pull hair out while reading. Nothing was really believable nor was it something I could imagine in real life. I mean, people don’t really act like that do they? And, this was supposedly Christian reading … what’s with all the “passionate kissing, hugging, & imagining scenes”? Very disappointed in that. This is definitely not a book I recommend and I thoroughly regret reading it.
