Review: The Wild Rose, Jennifer Donnelly

As a result, this review will have spoilers for both. Now, unable to satisfy her greatest passion of climbing, Willa spends most of her time finding other ways to endanger herself and live on the edge. She spends her time photographing mountains in Tibet, following wars, and getting captured. Surrounding the couple are a cast familiar to anyone who has read any of the Rose trilogy — Fiona and Joe, who are getting older now, their brigade of children, India and Sid, and other more minor characters from the earlier books. Part of the appeal of such a series is definitely getting stuck in with characters to care about.

The Wild Rose

It is written as a standalone book, so the background from the first two books is filled in throughout the story. Perhaps the main drawback with this one is that two of the main characters, Willa and Max, are not very likable. Instead, she comes off as too immature and self-absorbed, while Katie, the daughter of Joe and Fiona whose story is the focus of the first book , steals the show in the background. Sid, the hero of book two, brightens up the book by megawatts in his too infrequent appearances in book three; there is no one in this book to match his character and charisma. Seamie, the brother of Fiona and Sid, could have been that character, but Donnelly unfortunately gave him a back seat to Willa and Max. The burning heat, gritty sand, unrelenting thirst, and myriad dangers are all there in vivid color, and yet it is rendered only in black and white.
