Honor Thyself is the first Danielle Steel book I
have read in a long time and unfortunately it didnít compare
to the books Iíve enjoyed in the past. The tone of the
story and the main character came across as uninteresting
and I had a difficult time getting into the story. Iím used
to Ms. Steelís characters making me feel for them,
especially the heroines. Iím used to women who make me
cheer their strength and feel compassion for their pain, I
felt none of that for Carole, or anyone else in the story.
I did find some interest in the chapters toward the end of
the book and even though I wasnít crazy about the majority
of this story, the ending did make me smile. Honor
Thyself may not have held my interest, but other
Danielle Steel fans may find it to their liking.
