A Disappointing Read
on 28 November 2008
Having read and thoroughly enjoyed 'Act of Will' by Barbara Taylor Bradford I thought 'Voice of the Heart' would be just as good. However, I was very disappointed. The Daily Express says this book is "a real page-turner", well yes I agree, I had to turn about 100 pages at a time in search of something to actually happen! I got bored of Bradford's constant descriptive text, I like my novels to have a little more substance, depth and intrigue; this book lacked all three. If I was stuck on a desert island with just this book for entertainment, I would put it to better use on the camp fire.
