2.0 out of 5 stars As a fan I found this very disappointing, 12 Feb. 2014
This review is from: Silks (Paperback)
perhaps had I not been such a huge Dick Francis fan this would have rated 3 stars instead of 2, or maybe I would have given it 1 star if the great Dick Francis name were not on it. I think disappointment made me give the lower rating. I have read every Dick Francis book and thoroughly enjoyed them all, (10lb penalty less than the others), and bought this with great expectations. they were not met. This is long winded, boring and difficult to get through. Although it says "Dick Francis with Felix Francis' I can't help feeling it is the other way round; Felix Francis with a bit of his father's help - and very little at that. I wonder if a famous author for a father isn't the only reason Felix got to publish this? The main character was not developed and became just an entity with little appeal. The story would not have been too bad had it been fuller and better researched, but the way it is I could wait to finish and throw the book away.
