I'm normally a big fan of Alex Beecroft, but I felt comparatively cool about this book, and I think it was the diary format. First, it meant it was told in alternating first person perspectives, and Harry in particular has something of a florid prose style. In a way it shows Beecroft's talent in making the first person narrators of this story not sound like the third person narrators of the others, but practically, I didn't enjoy the narrative voices of this one as much. Secondly, it may be silly considering that this is a romance and obviously our heroes are going to find happiness somewhere, but the knowledge that they were writing this diary somewhere after the fact, and apparently not from jail since they make references to going outside to write, made the rest of their travails a bit less immediate.
I don't regret having read this book, but I don't love it the way I love False Colors, either.
