If I ever go on a cruise around the Italian Riviera, this is both the journey and the boat I’d like to go on. What a woman Stella was! I loved the multi layers of this tale – from Hal and Stella’s present day yearnings to their past troubles, the various characters on board the boat, and the story which was told in the film, this was a Gastby-esque tale of how glitz and glamour can hide so many secrets and so much pain. Stella’s story was the most developed given her flashbacks to her life in Spain. Hers was an intriguing story and I would have loved to know more about her time in Spain. I think there was even more to this story that the author let on and that in itself got me interested in finding Stella particularly interesting. The tension and attraction between Hal and Stella was nicely done and I liked the way that as the boat sailed into a new destination, there was even more baggage to offload. The locations are evoked with sun and panache and you would be recommended to read it with your shades on and a lime slice and margarita nearby. As the boat sails on, the view becomes ever more unchartered waters and it’s a treat to find out what happens to them all and how the film reflects the relationships playing out on board.
