1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish, 21 April 2012

This review is from: India's Summer (Kindle Edition)
I had downloaded this book for 2 reasons: it was HIGHLY recommended by a thinker & educator I respect, Ken Robinson (the author's husband); and it was free. I found this book painfully unoriginal, awfully formulaic, and much like the "Prada boots", "Hermes scarf" & "cath kidston pyjamas" which serve as adjectives, this book reads like a hashed together 3rd rate B movie that is on it's umpteenth re-run on a dead of the night broadcast. The plot is tired, the characters 1D, plot twists so predictable, and dialogues so immature that they are cringeworthy. I guess love really is blind!

I too have read this book and enjoyed it for what it was. I don't think it pretended to be anything other than escape or fantasy. As far as I can make out this is the author's first novel and she needs to be commended for producing a novel. I look forward to India's next adventure. As you didn't pay for the book perhaps you shouldn't waste your energy criticising it!

Thanks for your comment. Just like you I'm also entitled to my opinion, isn't it so? Amazon offered the book for free, but I made the effort of reading it. And that effort, amongst other principles entitles me to criticise this book. Just to clarify: I did not criticise it as pretending to be something it is not. I criticised it for what it is.
