Irritating writing style obscures underlying message
on 6 October 2009
I couldn't get through more than a few chapters of this - the irritating writing style just made it a real chore to read.
Italics used for emphasis in seemingly every other sentence; capitalized terms used in every other paragraph to express emphasis again - but for no obvious reason.
Too many short sentences - probably intended to be profound and to stick in the mind - break up the flow and make reading disjointed, bitty and difficult to form a coherent picture of the ideas trying to be conveyed.
Endless references to "A Course in Miracles" serve as textual adverts and further distract the reader from what is trying to be expressed.
Judging by all the positive reviews for the book - it's just me.
But for me, it's a text that could be better written and in a far more flowing and engaging style.
