Night Music is my first Jojo Moyes book and I am thoroughly disappointed. I was expecting something along the lines of Nicholas Sparks.
The story follows a widow with her two children. Isabel is as helpless and naive as a child, to a point where she ignores her children to a degree bordering on child neglect. Her husband dies in an accident. The fmaily is forced to leave their expensive lifestyle behind and move to the country, where the drama around the Spanish house takes place.
The Delancys inherit (plothole #1) the ramshackle house. The lovely neighbours, the McCarthys, picturing the dumbest housewive in literature and a handsome (unfortunately a psychopath) husband and a teenage son, want the house too. (plothole#2) The random estate agent (cz Mrs McCarthy needs a love story too) wants the house too. And lets not forget the ex-convict with the sexy hips and cute dogs (he, for a change, is not interessted in the house)

The plot devices get repetitive: everyone has a crush on everyone. Everybody is cheating. All of them are emotional drama queens.

I liked the gay shopkeers! Thats that. The story takes nearly half of the book to get going. Everything leading up to @the action [email protected] just drags and drags, the house demolition and Isabels inner misery. We get so many POVs that I stopped caring right after the first chapters.

It ends with a big drama. Way over the top, with the side-plot tied up so dumb, I get cramps thinking it was conjured in a female head. I think that was my last Moyes book for this year.

Um romance viciante onde a autora de Viver Depois de Ti - único livro que tinha lido, até então, de Jojo Moyes - mostra uma maturidade que me cativou. As personagens são bem construídas e carismáticas, despertando emoções fortes e obrigado-nos a ler mais e mais. Achei o final ligeiramente apressado, o me deixou triste por ter acabado.

3,5* tive alguma dificuldade em gostar da personagem principal. Não me identifico com mulheres frágeis e fracas. A personagem foi crescendo mas mesmo o final não me emocionou.

Usually I like a book to hook me from the first sentence or even the first chapter but with this it just seemed to drag in the beginning with all the house renovating and the sad widow and her violin playing, it took me about 45-50 % till I was really hooked, so hooked that I couldnt put it down, I got so intrigued and addicted that I read it everywhere I went. I just love it when a book does that to me!


The Story

So it starts off with Laura and Matt McCarthy who live next to Mr pottisworth who theyve been taking care of for the last 9 years, they think that if they do this that somehow Mr Potterisworth will leave them his house which is called The Spanish House there obsessed with owning it. So when he does die there shocked to know its been left to one of his descendants.

With Isabels husband dead for over a year she finds she in some serious debt with bills mounting. So when she discovers shes been left the Spanish House she sells her previous house to settle some payments and uproots her 2 children from their privilege lives and move to the middle of nowhere out in the woods to the ramshackle House.

With the Spanish house so rundown, Matt from next door conveniently offers his building services and renovates the house. Of course Matt has his own agenda, he still believes he can still get the house. So with his plans and designs in mind he tells her what needs doing and practically uses her money to rebuild his dream home. Matt is such a dick!

I wont say more but down the line Matt gets so obsessive not just over the house but of Isabel he gets a bit crazy.


Main Characters

Isabel Delancy - (main character) a professional violin player, her husband Laurent died of a car crash more than 9 months ago, has two kids, 16 year old Kitty and Theirry age 9 who doesnt talk since his father died.

Matt McCarthy, married to laura , cheating husband whos obsessed with owning the Spanish House. Towards the end he goes crazy

Laura McCarthy, knows about her husbands cheating yet stays with him. When things go crazy she finds comfort in a man that actually cares about her.

Byron Firth. (Isabels love interest) He works for Matt doing odd jobs, befriends Isabels son Thierry eventually creating this bond that has him talking again. Becomes homeless with his two dogs and box full of puppies that he ends up secretly staying under Isabels house in the boiler room. Hes a really sweet caring man.


Told in third person pov jumping to a different character every chapter or paragraph. sometimes it was hard to tell who was speaking until halfway down the page when the character was named. not really a huge downer on the book though.


Other spoilers and tid bits about the book

(view spoiler)[When you find out the reason behind Matts obsession/revenge on getting the Spanish house its a bit disappointing. I was like really? thats the reason?

And Im kinda disappointed by the end/epilogue. I guess I wanted more, more from Byron and Isabels ending, maybe have them moved in together with the kids, married even.

and Lauras ending was unsatisfying as well. I really wanted her to end up with Nicholas, she deserved to be happy.

And what about the Isabels jewellery Matt brought back for her? we never find out if she ever got that back. (hide spoiler)]




So all in all I quite enjoyed the second half. With a slow boring start which would turn most people off but if you stick with it the story does get more compelling.
