Dear Amazon, please grant us negative rating,
This review is from: Target: (Tina Boyd 4) (Paperback)
Amazon should implement a minus sign. Seriously. This is one of the very few books, that fully deserves -4 stars.
And mind you, I am not easily impressed, I read a lot.
Such books constitute an inverted elite, actually. It is not that they are badly written (this one started in an enticing way actually). It is that they insult the reader's intelligence. When I came across this writer's specific plot twist, I felt insulted, I felt he was writing for a kindergarten audience. There is a very specific writing convention: what you write it has to be real within the context of your story.
I can very well believe that a man can pick up a 00:01 nuclear bomb and throw it to outer space, so that it explodes in a black hole, if I am reading a superhero novel.
Now put this scene in Nick Hornby's "High Fidelity" where the hero tries to impress his ex.
Working for you? Nah...
In a nutshell: Do not spend any money to buy this book. If you feel compelled by this and the other reviews to read it, then borrow it from a public library, or ask it from an unfortunate friend who paid for it.
When you have read it, you will understand the -4 stars. I keep the -5 rating for the next worst thing.
