The Gatecrasher - Madeleine Wickham Nearly everything about this story I found hideous. I absolutely hate Fleur. She's cruel and selfish, a neglectful mother and a funeral crashing gold digger who goes out of her way to prey upon vulnerable men and their families. Richard isn't much of a fully formed character and is so boring and gullible and just pathetic. The ending was possibly the worst of all. It's so abrupt and nonsensical and tries to be ambiguous but is just ridiculous.
Because I have read everything published under Sophie Kinsella and loved it, I was expecting a lighthearted feel-good comedy but came away with negative emotions. This story left a nasty taste in my mouth, I won't be reading other Madeleine Wickham books.
