T FALL IN LOVE WITH SOMEONE ELSE THERE S fall in love with someone else There s falling in love in the novel at all not really Marrying Liam is a fait accompli as the novel opens no romantic proposal no declarations of love It was all very civilised And unromantic Then at college Vicky meets Jordan who is most definitely not a traveller It was like there was something there but there wasn t really because Les Chevaliers du Zodiaque : St Seiya, tome 27 head a girlfriend It was all a bit teenagerish for me uite frankly Jordan was a bit of an idiot I certainly didn t see what Vicky allegedly saw He Found in Translation had a girlfriendis girlfriend Chloe was a total cow to Vicky but instead of breaking up with Folktales from the Moose of Burkina Faso her because she was a cow Jordan gaveer one chance and told Jeou p'ou t'ouan ou la chair comme tapis de prire her to lay off Vicky If Jordan HAD liked Vicky thene wouldn t Frankenstein; or The Modern Prometheus have been with Chloe wouldn tave allowed The Maze Runner : Book 1 her to treat Vicky like crap I found that entire storyline to be completely silly Mainly because I was expecting a lot I was expecting Vicky to go to College and actually fall in love with someone not just feel wobbly because some really uite gross boy kisseder That s not love that s just A kissI would very much Do No Harm have preferred if Gypsy Wedding just focused on Vicky and Liam s wedding I can see what Kate Lace was trying to do with Jordan but it fell flat on its face the first time we learnede was with Chloe And continued to be with The Poseidon Adventure her This couldave been a wonderful novel a novel that showed us the gypsy culture in a lovely light But instead it didn t really work for me There wasn t enough to ground it Vicky supposedly How to Stop Drinking Alcohol and End Drug Addiction had this amazing stupendous talent for dress making which was irrelevant because gypsy wives can t work so it just didn t go anywhere Vicky didn t want to leaveer family leave Le tour du monde en uatre vingts jours her camp so anything else was a moot point The whole book was if I monest a moot point I got to the end and I felt disappointed in all that The Iron Raven (The Iron Fey: Evenfall, hadappened because nothing of note The Kindest Lie had reallyappened It all sort of just tailed off It s like Gypsy Wedding wanted to be about a gypsy girl finding love outside of Uncivil Rites her family outside ofer camp But then Kate Lace changed Ethnic Minorities and the Media Issues in Cultural and Media Studies her mindalfway through and what we got was something that went neither Kraken: An Anatomy here nor there The book was a uick read but it didn t tell me anything The gypsy side of it was mainly all bad things frankly with everything Vicky couldn t do Gypsy Wedding wasn t what I expected sadly and I m disappointed I didn t enjoy it Vicky O Rourke is engaged to Liam theyave been engaged for the last two years she is only 17 and wants to go to college to learn dress making The Best I Can Be her parents aren t keen as in their culture and they wanter married and concentrating on Killers of the Flower Moon : Oil, Money, Murder and the Birth of the FBI having children Eventuallyer father and Liam agree she can go to college but she will be married in 1 year s time Vicki s college tutor says she Daughter of the Alien Warrior Treasured by the Alien has aidden talent and she should follow Fire on the Water her dreams but will Vicki follower dreams or do as
