Excellent narrator but not much of a story
- L. Stubblefield
This book should have been written by a computer.
The characters and the writing style are all over the map. 1 minute the main character is intelligent and halfway savvy the next minute a complete moron. The main character's significant other is a poorly used plot device that is ignored by the author over half the time. The narrator is good.
I have read other books in this genre and thoroughly enjoyed them. Thank goodness this was not my 1st book of this genre. Had it been the 1st book in the genre I had read I probably would have been turned off completely.
I enjoyed the narrator and she did the best she could with what she had to work with.
The character I would cut from this novel isn't in the novel it's the editor. Some authors need a good strong editorial hand to keep them on track, this is one of those writers.
If this is the 1st book you have read of this genre don't let it disappoint you too badly there are many good books and authors in this area. Please try again. I would recommend you try something from Molly Harper Juliet Blackwell. Both are good authors with a good sense of humor.
