The Father's Tale,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Father's Tale (Kindle Edition)
I am only a few dozen pages into this book but I have found it difficult reading.
The writing is over the top, confusing at times with all the multi-syllabic terminology, wandering all over the place, often going off at a tangent from the main story to indulge in philosophical musings.
Using nick-names for adults (Toffee! Worm!) is embarrassing to read.
Though repeatedly reminding us that funds are short, our hero thinks little of hopping on a plane to take him half around the world, then wonders what he is going to do in Helsinki.
As a Catholic myself, I find his constant references to Catholic religious practices also embarrassing.
And quoting poetry to someone you hardly know, and in the middle of a dance, is just not believeable.
Shall I go on?
I'd be wanting my money back?
