The Princess TestTo redeem him The way he left his notes of Carrie s scandalous secret ust lying around for someone else to find scandalous secret Creationism in Europe just lying around for someone else to find completely idiotic The book talks over and over about how great aournalist he was and how he d won awards and so forthand yet he s too stupid to take precautions with sensitive information GTFOOH Not to mention that he didn t actually have any proof that his information was correct He got the 20 year old opinion of a retired reporter and decided it must be the truth without any corroborating evidence whatsoever Is that really the kind of ournalistic research that won him awards in the past Please And his method of apologizing to Carrie was pretty weak He breaks down into tears about how tough his life has been the last year so that SHE ends up comforting HIM Everything was about poor daniel and his raw deal in poor Daniel and his raw deal in when 999% of his problems were self inflicted He was ust lame all the way aroundAside from the highly disappointing hero there were multiple places where the plot ust didn t make sense First of all the secret in the story was telegraphed so hard that a child could figure it out very early on but Carrie was totally oblivious until it literally walked right up to her Then after she finds it out shedoes nothing She doesn t call her parents to see if it s actually true nothing That s totally unbelievable Instead she goes to the interview at Daniel s tabloid TV station Why on earth would she do that after receiving some personally devastating news At the very least she could have called and said she was sick This interview wasn t SO important that she needed to do it at all costsThe titular princess test Daniel and Carrie dreamed up for the interview was kept secret the whole book like it was going to be some big reveal but when it was revealed it was the most boring and least TV appropriate test you can imagine that wouldn t prove a darn thing with regards to Carrie s claims of being a princess view spoiler Having her do some embroidery on camera Are you kidding No one would ever watch that And how does her ability to sew or lack thereof prove she is or is not a princess Lots of people do embroidery and they re not descended from royalty And I m sure there have been plenty of royals throughout history who were no good with a needle so this test proves nothing And then they start serving a meal to see if she knows which spoon to use for the soup course Seriously First of all eating on camera is a bad idea You can spill food on yourself knock things over get food stuck in your teeth etc It s ust a bad idea Second of all this was supposed to be an INTERVIEW How can they talk if their mouths are constantly full And third knowing which utensil to use at a fancy dinner is not something uniue to royalty Heck even Daniel knew which spoon to use so this test too is completely ridiculous and pointless How on earth was this lame boring show supposed to re establish Daniel as a serious ournalist Why the heck would his boss even agree to air such a snoozer on his tabloid show that exclusively deals in racy scandal Nothing about this made sense hide spoiler A darling book So perfect to curl up It was a uick read but in no way short on heart If you re looking for a sweet romance between two characters you root for you can t go wrong with this modern fairy tale by Shirley Jump. Carlita is she really royal or ust posing as a princessCarlita captivates Daniel but soon he'll have to choose Should he follow the headlines or his hear. Eople are important than the story His mother tells him about how his father ruined some poor innocent man s life by being so driven to publish the story that he didn t adeuately check his facts The man committed suicide as a direct result and Daniel s father never recovered Daniel listens to this story and then goes right back to trying to decide whether or not he should ruin Carrie s life as if it had no impact on him whatsoever He even goes to talk to Carrie and he a doesn t clue her in to the scandalous info he s found and b sits there while she goes on and on about how he s such a good man and she trusts him implicitlyand he leaves and still can t decide whether or not to screw her over Are you kidding me This guy is a monsterAnd such a hypocrite too He constantly threw stones at his tabloid boss s heartless drive to get ratings at all costs but then in practically the next "Sentence He Talks About How "he talks about how Pulitzer prize winning father also drummed it into his brain that ournalism was all about the endless uest for ratings And when he found out Carrie s scandalous secret he freely admitted that the old him would have been foaming at the mouth to splash it across the headlines So how exactly is he any different from his new tabloid employers He s not He ust considers himself to be better than everyone else That HIS drive for ratings is some how nobler than his boss s when the end result is exactly the sameuite frankly I didn t sympathize with Daniel s situation at all He didn t even actually seem to like his career as a Liberty Arrives! journalist very much because he spoke several times about how he d been expected to follow in his father and grandfather s footsteps so that s why he d chosen the profession But despite not caring about theob and having lived through a childhood of having an absentee father who cared about the next headline than his own child Daniel still did the exact same thing to his own wife and daughter His wife was in the process of divorcing him when she died which led to him suddenly being forced to be a parent to his daughter If the wife had lived and the divorce finalized he would have continued in his Mary Elizabeth Garrett jet setting career and probably only seen his daughter once or twice a year if he could be bothered This is not hero material peopleIt would have been one thing if his wife s death had be a true wake up call for him and he d abandoned all his callouserk ways but he hasn t He s still pretty much that guy for 99% Of The Book of the book acts like he HAS to stay at this tabloid How to Know the Ducks, Geese, and Swans of North America job that he hates in order to provide for his daughter but that s not true There are other professions in the world besidesournalism He didn t even try to find a different line of work A hero is supposed to someone who is strong enough to stand by their principles even when the going gets tough If he truly felt that the tabloid Rebellion in Black and White job went against all his beliefs then he shouldn t have been working there The fact that he chose to work there andust sit around whining about it all the time made him come across as weak I also didn t like that he deliberately used his daughter to get close to Carrie in the beginning with the full intention of proving her to be an impostor Exploiting his innocent daughter for such nefarious purposes is Dwarfism just slimy not to mention wrongAnd I didn t really feel like the ending did enough. Rnalist but now as a single dad he's working on a gossip show better hours but rock bottom morals His boss orders Daniel to test suspiciously down to earth.
