Sappy

I struggled to finish this book because the sappy, clich? ridden dialogue became unbearable. I held on hoping a decent story would unfold. As it turned out the story had potential but the poor writing style stripped it of all suspense or drama.

Enjoying the Narrator

I am really enjoying this book - the writing is engaging and the narrator excellent. The "choppy" parts are when the character and his wife are jogging and is quite good in creating an image. His ability to change his voice with the characters is EXCELLENT! No "he said" "she said" with each sentence and you can really follow the conversations.

Descriptions are clear and really create a picture. Good so far (I am about 2 hours in).
