Quick Book Review : Bungalow 2 by Danielle Steel

danielle steel Today I finished reading Bungalow 2 by Danielle Steel, so as I promised, here is my opinion about this book. The subject is interesting and the situation takes an unexpected turn all the time. You want to know what happens next and how it will end. The first part of the book is really boring, too much description and she repeats the same idea rephrased, too often. In the end it’s starting to become more interesting and readable. Probably not the best book of Danielle Steel, but she had the misfortune to be the first read by me. I can only say that it will take some time before I would read a book written by her.

Chapter 1 Paragraph

It was a beautiful hot July day in Marin County, just across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco, as Tanya Harris bustled around her kitchen, organizing her life. Her style was one of supreme order. She loved having everything tidy, in its proper place, and in control. She loved to plan, and therefore she rarely ran out of anything, or forgot to do anything. She enjoyed a predictably efficient life. She was small, lithe, in good shape, and didn’t look her age, which was forty-two years old. Her husband, Peter, was forty-six. He was a litigator with a respected San Francisco law firm, and didn’t mind the commute to Ross, across the bridge. Ross was a prosperous, safe, highly desirable suburban community. They had moved there from the city sixteen years before because the school system was excellent. It was said to be the best in Marin. Tanya and Peter had three children. Jason was eighteen and was leaving for college at the end of August. He was going to UC Santa Barbara, and although he couldn’t wait to go, Tanya was going to miss him terribly. And they had twin daughters, Megan and Molly, who had just turned seventeen. Tanya had loved every moment of the last eighteen years, being a full-time mom to her kids. It suited her perfectly. She never found it burdensome or boring. The tedium of driving car pools had never seemed intolerable to her. Unlike mothers who complained of it, she loved being with her children, dropping them off, picking them up, taking them to Cub Scouts and Brownies, and she had been head of the parent’s association of their school for several years. She took pride in doing things for them, and loved going to Jason’s Little League and basketball games, and whatever the girls did as well. Jason had been varsity in high school, and was hoping to make either the basketball or tennis team at UCSB.

    1. Maybe. Now I started to read another book. I think I’ll finish it in a few days. I like it very much and the subject is really interesting. Maybe I will come with a review and I will tell you the mysterious title. 😀 It will be a surprise.
