Hackneyed, *and* repetitive

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This book isn't for anyone who pays attention to what they're reading or listening to.


What could Morgan Rice have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I don't think a single page of this has ever been introduced to an editor. There are strings of sentences that all repeat the same thing - and using the same words! The author is too lazy to come up with different phrases and just uses the same ones over and over. E.g., the main character is "burning with indignation". Then two sentences later, "Indignation is burning in his veins." And in the next paragraph, he's "burning with indignation" again. As a result the characters have no depth and it's very difficult to immerse yourself in the story. The plot is also relatively unimaginative, but I expected that.


How could the performance have been better?

The narrator is a good fit for this author. They both have a very small, shallow bag of tricks to work with. The vast majority of sentences in the story are all voiced with the exact same inflection, as if the writing were metered or in verse. It usually doesn't suite the actual content of the text, and becomes terribly annoying very quickly.


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I was very disappointed with the whole book almost immediately. And depending on my mood otherwise, listening would sometimes make me so frustrated with the stupid mis-steps by the author and narrator that I had to stop.

Don't waste your money or credits

Would you try another book from Morgan Rice and/or Wayne Farrell?

No.


What could Morgan Rice have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I usually don't review books I listen to. Just usually don't care to take the time. Sorry. But I had to warn other listeners to stay away from this book. Poor writing. Predictable and bad plot. Inconsistencies in the plot. Inexplicable story lines. Shallow characters that you can't engage with. No depth to the characters. I kept listening hoping that it would get better. It didn't. I didn't have any other books to listen to and wasn't where I could download more so I was stuck wading though this book. Would have been better turning it off.


What didn’t you like about Wayne Farrell’s performance?

Tempo and reading style hard to listen to. I listen to about one book each week and I could not recommend his reading.


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not really.


Any additional comments?

Just avoid this book. If you decide to listen to anyway, your choice, but you have been warned.
