1.0 out of 5 stars Confused, 25 Sept. 2011
This review is from: A Quiet Belief In Angels (Paperback)
Roger Ellory is one of my favourite authors. I have loved every book he's ever written. Since first reading Ghostheart (which still remains my favourite) a couple of years ago I have looked forward to starting each new book, knowing what a satisfying experience it would be.
A friend had bought this book and I mentioned how much I was looking forward to reading it, at which point she said she hadn't even finished it and I could have hers because she knew she wouldn't be reading any more of it.
So you can imagine my feelings when I eagerly started it and found that I also was completely unimpressed. I stuck with it to the end, hoping that at some point I would become engrossed, but it never happened. I won't get technical about why I didn't enjoy it - I just hated every bit of the story !
Not since The Lovely Bones have I picked a book up expecting so much and being so disappointed. I read reviews praising this book so much and it leaves me confused - why did it leave me cold but others inspired ?

I'm with you Jennifer - it left me completely cold. One of the few books I've struggled to finish.
