A Wife of Noble Character: A Novel by Yvonne Georgina Puig
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Note, I know that there are comparisons Edith Wharton's "House of Mirth" which I have never personally read nor am I interested in reading more women's chic-lit.
I personally found the writing very simplistic and the characters unlikeable & unrelatable. There was so connection to the petty struggles, or "rich people's problems" and I honestly didn't care what was happening during the timeline of the story. Who knows? Maybe this simply isn't the fit for me. I usually tend to stay away from chick lit because I prefer some plot-driven actions and I felt like the narrative was running in circles around the main relationship and I wasn't invested in the outcome at all.
Vivienne was the stereotypical beautiful rich girl who didn't know what she wanted from her life. She is so "glowing and stunning" that she has the attention of a lot of (un)wanted attention from men and some very complicated unsatisfying relationships. It takes place in Texas, and I would say that it's an easy beach read although I would not reccomend it. I found the MC personality cliche and couldn't relate in any way to her as a women, but it did make me realize the long way to feminism.
