Kim's Review : All That Glitters

I bought Aita Ighodaro's - "All that Glitters" just before visiting Jaipur for JLF 2013, as she was one of the authors scheduled to visit during the fest. The synopsis of "All that Glitters" was great and it seemed like an interesting whodunnit.The 1st chapter that I read on Amazon via "Read inside" was also quite gripping.

Unfortunately, this book did not live up to my expectations. More than half of the book consists of parties at Oxford,debates, fashion shows and art shows. The plot development is heavily skewed, as nothing of significant import happens until the end and then the book concludes in a rush.

Other than the character of Isabel, none of the other characters were developed at all. "All that Glitters" would fall in the chiklit rather than the whodunnit genre, so its not the kind of book that I usually enjoy. But I'm sure it must have a large readership of its own.

Rating: 2 / 5
