1.0 out of 5 stars Am I wrong?, 15 Jun 2011
To be fair, perhaps I'm not qualified to give a critique of this book as I have only read about 30 pages. Usually once I pick up a book I finish it but with this one I couldn't continue as I thought that it was so badly written. The author seems like a child who has just discovered adjectives and adverbs and puts as many in as he can. Added to that I didn't think it was necessary to explain trivial things all the time it spoilt the 'flow' of the writing. I am an avid reader from Shakespeare, Harding,Tolkien, Forsythe, le Carré, Grisham and Cornwall to name a few, however, I was very disappointed with this offering. Is it me or do other people think the same?
