Unless you are a diehard Durrell fan, skip this

I was so excited to read this book. I've read all the Gerald Durrell books about his family, I loved the TV series, and I couldn't wait to hear about what happened to Margo. Unfortunately, Margo is not a writer. This would have been a much better book if Gerald had written it. I was lost and confused throughout, and finally had to give up halfway through -- it is a slog to get through. Not much happens, and what does happen is not that interesting. The only funny bits are when members of her family pop up, and that is not often enough. I may just go back and read the end just to find out what eventually happens to Margo, but man this was a tough go.
