Dark Angel is a fairly short typical chick lit book. It is a light reading, but well written for this genre. Of course, the reader gets exactly what one should get from such a book: a predictable plot and, with one exception, plain characters.
The author realistically describes the social norms and standards of acceptable behaviour of the time, as well as she manages to express a distinctive criticism of its hypocrisy, gloating joy, and double standards of morality between the lines.
RECOMMENDATION: This is a book for taking a recess and is the right one for someone who does not want to read something too corny.
