The end of my sojourn to the Seven Isles
on 5 December 2013
Well, I gave it a go, but I will not be continuing with any of the other books. For some it was the endless "slathering" of butter over biscuits, but for me it was the use of the term "the man who was not a man" some twenty or so times in the space of a couple of pages along with the way a physical description of a character was crudely shoehorned into the narrative every time someone new was introduced. Maybe, as some have suggested, the book is aimed at a young audience, but it was just too poorly written for me to care about the plot. I was half expecting the villain to twirl his moustache as he contemplated his evil plots. Too crudely written and too childish in its morality for me.
