disappointing - gt.storyline let down by the telling of it,
This review is from: The Summons (Hardcover)
I chose this book as I was in the mood for a good story and the storyline on the cover appealed. I relied - mistakenly it now seems - on the good name of jg and the reviews quoted on the cover.
I was very disappointed. There was, I'd admit, some sense of time and place but really, beyond that, I found it lacked pace and was not exactly gripping. I gave it 2 stars as I did finish it - mainly I skipped lots of paragraphs in an effort to get ahead in the hope of being gripped further on.
This was very disappointing as I felt it was a good story let down in the telling - not a crime in itself but somehow made worse when chosen as a book by a very successful writer. I'm not sure if I should give jg a second chance by trying another...
