I had some problems with the structure of the novel. It is divided into 4 books, and then these are divided into small sections of between a few paragraphs and a few pages. Each little section is labelled with where the action is taking place and vitally when. This is not a book written in a linear fashion, the first book in particular jumps forward and backwards. Unfortunately I found this off-putting and had to flick back a number of times to work out what was going on.
The plot is Las Vegas centric, complete with scandal, warring families and secrets threatening to bubble over. To begin with I enjoyed the plot but as the book progressed I found myself sighing as it got more outlandish.
“The Wish” is not a book that I would normally have picked to read, and that is the beauty of this Reading Challenge. I’m glad to have given it a try but it isn’t one for me.
