Nine Coaches Waiting
Nine Coaches Waiting - Mary Stewart

I can´t even bother to write a proper review for Nine Coaches Waiting.

 

The mystery was lame and ridiculous, the romance was boring as well, the female main character was an idiot, her love interest was a douche and all the French people were depicted as mean spirited and/or dimwitted and/or downright evil. And this book jumped the shark several times. A thing which shouldn´t even be possible.

 

My final verdict: Bah .... NEXT!

Well, what was luck for if it never was to be tempted?

I turned my back on the black little alley. Two minutes later we were sitting at a red-topped table near the stove while a long thin man with a soiled apron and a face like a sad heron waited to be told what we would have to eat.

 

Well, I think the most reasonable thing to do is to eat something in a restaurant, while bad people, who wants to kill the boy, are in pursuit of you.

Linda finally learned the truth about the murder plot against little Phillip and oh boy, the mystery and Linda´s (supposedly) assigned role in it is so dumb, I think I need some booze as well for the rest of the book.

I have to start another book tonight, because I can´t handle anymore of this for the rest of the day.

Ugh, I don´t get Linda. She is in love with a bully, who practically has manhandled her in a car and forced a kiss upon her. And instead of being sorry, he is incredibly smug about it:

 

"For the kiss I can ´t honestly say I´m sorry [...]"

 

And now after having been on one (!) date and several kissing sprees, she is going to marry him. She tells him that she loves him and he tells her:

 

"This love thing. I don´t know. This is honest. I don´t know."

[...]

"[...] I wan´t you. I need you, by God I do. If you´d call that love  - "

 

This reads more like he wants to possess a toy.

It seems like Raoul isn´t a bad guy after all, because

 

For better or worse, I was head over heels in love with Raoul de Valmy.

(spoiler show)

 

However, I´m still not completely sold on him, even though he is standing up against his horrible father.

 

And finally the actual adventure / mystery part is slowly picking up and it is about time on page 183.

 

So far I don´t think this is going to be my favorite Mary Stewart.
