Very weak - rushed, shallow - yeuk
, 20 July 2011
This review is from: The Diamond Throne (The Elenium) (Paperback)
Many years ago I enjoyed the Belgeriad books (glossing over the "nicey, nicey" sentimental vomit bits) - so looking for a light escapist read I bought this trilogy to read over the summer.
The characters are poorly developed, callous, uncaring and yet often overwhelmingly sentimental and inconsistent. They experience crassly written horrors with hardly a flinch and then react massively to far less dreadful situations: and then indulge in violent and callous acts for no good reason before turning all gushy and sentimental over their little mother. Utterly vomit making!
These have to have been rushed and written for reasons other than the joy of writing - very poor and some of the worst written books I have ever read.
