Book Review: Homeport

Wow, this book is truly fascinating!! The story was so entertaining that I couldn't put my book down. There was the sizzling romance, the exotic backdrops, the suspense, strong characters and most importantly, the intriguing plots that built up my curiosity throughout my reading and then surprised me at the very end.

This novel has all the elements that make it a best seller romance. The ending is also greatly satisfying. I had read so many stupid, cheesy, boring and lame romance fictions in the past that I was very skeptical when I picked this book up. But what a delightful surprise it gave me. Life is too short to be wasted on crappy romance novels that have no substance but plain stupid sex scenes. Reading this book, I truly got to escape into a totally exciting world and I learnt quite a lot about Italian arts, and the career of archaeometry. What makes Nora Roberts' novels becoming my favorites is her ability to write to entertain and also educate. (of course it's not intensive education from college, but I sure am more worldly after reading this book). I wish I had learnt about this author when I was a kid in Hong Kong, (she was already a successful author back then) cause her heroines always have very interesting careers. I just think that would have helped me in exploring my life's calling. Nora Robert did a great job in this novel.
