Just doesnt work for me
on 19 February 2014
Obviously, I only download books which I think I will like, even if they cost nothing. That is why most of my reviews are positive.
In this case the idea is good, and unusual - murderer, having assumed a different identity, on the trot in Africa with a tour group, interactions with different characters whilst his pursuer tries to trace him. All sounds good, but the construction of the story stretches my belief beyond reasonable grounds.
I would have given this a higher rating, but what I found really tedious was that the author, for some strange reason, used no inverted commas to mark the beginning and end of direct speech. This is one of the basic rules of punctuation, and without them, speech becomes extremely tedious to read. It is not 'trendy' to do this, just very annoying.
