Good story, but predictable

Book review: "The Fortunes of Indigo Skye"

Book review: "The Fortunes of Indigo Skye"

May 13, 2008|By ELINA MIR / Pulse Correspondent

"The Fortunes of Indigo Skye" by Deb Caletti was a pretty good read. The novel itself is written well and incredibly descriptive, but it still lacked something. It wasn't a page-turner, and at 298 pages, it sometimes seemed very long.

The story is about 18-year-old Indigo Skye, a waitress who receives a tip of $2.5 million from a mysterious customer. She is told over and over again that the money will completely change her for the worst. Eventually that happens, then Skye realizes it has happened, then she tries to fix her life and return to the ones she loved.

"Indigo Skye" was a little predictable. It was not as good as Caletti's other novels, like "Wild Roses." While reading those books, I was so anxious to know what happened next.

I also found myself bored at some parts of "Indigo Skye." The  beginning and ending are wonderful but the middle is just blah.

The characters are probably the best part of the whole book. I will say that some of the characters fit nicely into the story. There is also a bit of a surprise with one -- you know this character isn't the best, but what happens just leaves you baffled.

Overall, the book was good but not my favorite work of Caletti's. Out of a 10, I give this book an 8.
