I fell for the blurb and the other reviews and i have to say the premise/plot is great - girl falls for girl, lots of drama but love wins thru in the end is fab. The execution of the book however from prose to grammer is dire! Sorry but the ebb and flow of the novel's lanaguage is stilted and jerky with phrases no self respecitng lesbian would utter which makes me feel we have taken a serious backward step in the 'coming out story'. What should have been a beautiful well honed/crafted story is demeaned by Mummy & Baby bear ! OMG!!!!! we are lesbians not drooling idiots - we dont have mother figure complexs - we have first girlfiends, crushes, unrequited love, coming out growing pains and families who dont get it and if we're really lucky end up 'getting it ! (which is lucky cos then you get to go home for christmas and might even get to have the 'one you love' by your side). Buy it. or not. But do so at own peril there's better prose out there !

I'm always on the look out for a good LGBT fiction novel, something with a good story, believable characters and I'm a sucker for a happy ending! I read many good reviews for this book on Amazon and thought it sounded exactly the sort of book I'd like.

From the start I found the writing to be amateurish, the words just didn't flow properly and as a result the story didn't draw me in at all. Throughout the novel the story failed to capture my imagination, there was no character development; instead it felt like Alex (the main character)bickered and squabbled with Hope (the love interest), and Matt (her fiance) with a sex secene thrown in here and there for good measure. The dialogue was unrealistic and awkward to read and quickly became quite predictable. In places there was unnecessary descriptions that did nothing to enhance the story, and in other places fairly significant moments passed by with no description at all.

For me the book read as though it had not been edited, which really diappointed me as I think there was a lot of scope for a good story if the plot had developed as the story progressed.

While I know everyone is entitled to their own opinion, I can only imagine that those giving this five stars don't read a lot of fiction. Might I suggest Jeanette Winterson's The Passion or Sarah Waters' Fingersmith as a starting point?
The story seemed promising and I love to read up and coming writers and it's clear this one was passionate about her characters but they are so under-developed. At times I was squirming at descriptions of them and the things they said. The dialogue is awkward and fails to take in how people actually speak - people often use contractions but in this, they do not. (!) It's a small thing but it makes reading the dialogue really difficult. It is clumsy in its attempt to reveal plot - often revealing too much about nothing or little about something major.
Many elements of the plot are undeveloped and Hope is so ridiculous that you wonder what Alex even sees in her other than her gorgeous eyes, which we're repeatedly told about. But then Alex, whose thoughts and motivations we can only guess at, is beyond belief too.
On Another Level reads like the first of first drafts in the writing process - the beginning part when the writer is sketching out ideas, scenarios and developing characters. What a pity it stops there.
I know that everyone must start somewhere but a bit of honesty from an editor could have shaped this into something more promising. If not an editor, a writing group?

I'm sorry to say this is the very first review I have even written but I really have to put my thoughts down! I brought this book, along with two others, to take on holiday with me and was generally looking forward to the story and plot. I know some books can take a little time to warm up and writers can have different styles that you need to get into so I have read about a third of this book and frankly refuse to read anymore. I can't believe in this day and age when publishers must be looking for the right book to actually fund, that this one slipped through the net! Never in all my years have I read such a poor quality book, some of the lines I just had to read out loud to my partner as I could not even believe what I was reading. The characters were non-existent, rarely did the writing flow, more often than not it was choppy, the story and comments swung from one direction to another with little explanation. At one point I even said I was going to write to the publisher, when I got home, to advise them they seriously needed to consider sacking the editor. Never again.!! On Another Level is certainly that but not in a good way. I'm sorry to say but don't waste your money on this book.

Format: Paperback
To say this isn't Lesbian Fiction at its best is too specific. This isn't Fiction at its best!
Stilted writing, over use of certain words, misuse of other words and frankly three characters you just don't care about in any sense.

This book feels like it was written for an evening school creative writing course for teenagers and instead of getting a really good copy editor to make a book, this seems like a vanity press 'print your book if you pay us to'....

Neither of us could finish the book to the bitter end. We have tried but ended up crying in frustration at the awful writing and one dimensional characters. Tricky for a novel to describe every character in such minute detail including explaining what they were thinking and who they'd thought it about and when and yet they were still one dimensional and uninteresting.

This book suffers from being an overly formal writing style that just doesn't engage the reader - its like a set book for an English exam (think in the style of Dickens/Bronte but not as well written!). In the Lesbian Fiction genre, there is a lot of competition for readership and this one frankly should never be included in any collection.
