A Bit Too Daft And Confusing For Me
on 22 March 2014
This was all a bit too daft and confusing for me and I packed it in at 26%. It started well enough and seemed very promising but once it got into Part 2 it headed off into some sort of unexplainable fantasyland and I got fed up trying to make sense of it.
There were mistakes by then as well. Complementary used in place of complimentary, the odd word added into a sentence making it meaningless or words left out, navel was spelt as naval (ouch), a was used instead of an and lent instead of leant. Bought used instead of brought, too, which is a schoolboy error, I'd think.
It did have a couple of laugh-out-loud little passages in it but it got too weird for me.
Updated 24th March:
The author kindly got in touch and explained a little more about the story and assured me I was close to finishing the portion I'd been struggling with so I gave it another look. I read another 30+ pages but it still seemed a little too "out there" for me. I'm probably a bit too black 'n' white for it. I don't see grey areas in anything much. I'll be interested to see what other readers make of it, though.
