Long-winded, tedious, and featuring her trademark detestable characters
on 20 December 2015
In every novel, the author makes a point of including one detestable character whom the author decides we should sympathise with. I have no idea why.
This book would have made a grand short story. Broken Harbour is long-winded and tedious. Any decent editor would have cut back every single scene in half, if not more. But it seems the author has no decent editor, so she is given carte blance to blather interminably. You will miss nothing if you read every third page.
