Marie is bad, or is she really? Marie just isn’t bad enough. If the author wanted to project the opposite, she didn’t do well on that either. The characters are all on the neutral side; no one has given a strong impact to the reader or at least to me.
Wish there was some brutal sense to it, so I could really feel how bad Marie is or that how bad things turned out for her. I did not feel for her all throughout the story. I just read page after page, always wondering what will happen next and every instance only seemed to be a disappointment. The author should have read Sidney Sheldon’s “If Tomorrow Comes”, for inspiration. It’s almost the same theme only more appealing, and indeed a good read.
The plot for Bad Marie lacks details and strong emphasis on the personality of the characters. Some of the characters just went out of the scene as if there was no significance in their existence. It was also a bad ending. It was abrupt the kind that doesn’t leave you wanting more.
