The Wedding - Danielle Steel

Category: Book

Genre: Love

Author: Danielle Steel

Allegra Steinberg is the epitome of a successful woman. She's got a career, great family and a handsome lawyer boyfriend, named Brandon. Raised well in the Entertainment Industry, her mom a Television Writer while her step dad  a successful Hollywood Producer and Director. Even though, her life looks like it's successful, she's so stressed she sees a therapist to help her go through things, specially with issues regarding her boyfriend who did not propose to her - yet.

Character development did not go well, some things were even predictable. Kinda just there... shallow. Its an okay story... but not really that great. Very typical.

I used to wish to have my third eye activated. But, after seeing this I'm beginning to think... I should not. If I'm gonna see or feel things like the way she did here in this movie.

I was enthused to find out Robert Downey was in the movie. This gives me the heebie jeebies!! It's actually got a neat storyline and also scares the hell out of you at the right time without appearing too much of the gore. Just enough. It's a good combination of horror and a suspense/thriller film. :)
