Good story, unfortunately badly written,
This review is from: Broken Silence (Di Jack Brady) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I really wanted to like this book, but it's not that easy to read. It's badly written a lot of the time, with way too many characters thrown in at once, making you have to flick back and forth trying to work out who is who, also the author tends to switch between using christian and surnames for characters making it even harder to read, some of the writing is ambiguous at times too, starting sentences with "He", when you have just been writing about 2 male characters drives me mad. Unfortunately I gave this one up (which is rare for me).
That said, I think had I persevered, the story writing would have perhaps shone through, so perhaps it's not all bad. I think the author needs to take a little more care in making her books easier to digest. I'm giving it a 3, the story itself deserves a 4, but the writing a 2.
