I was rather frustrated with Eric in the previous two books. I have to give Dahl a lot if credit for making unlikeable characters sympathetic. Although I didn't expect to, I came to like Eric in the end..and even to champion him.There were parts of this romance I really enjoyed, but many of the heroine's actions bothered me. Also, the siblings acted like teenagers and it got very old. While I think Dahl did an excellent job of turning the siblings into likeable characters in their own books, they made it hard to enjoy the other books.
