2.0 out of 5 stars Scrappy writing, predictable plot and the flimsiest of characterisation, 27 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Watch Dogs: Dark Clouds (Kindle Edition)
Despite only purchasing the highest rated books on Amazon, it's inevitable every now and again I'll find a turkey. For me, this book was it.

I haven't played the game to which this book was written as a tie-in, but that seems largely irrelevant. The characters are paper thin, the editing is poor and the storyline is as corny as it goes.

I assumed the book would take a while to warm-up - it doesn't. I assumed the high ratings must be accounted for with an excellent ending - there isn't one.

I didn't abandon the book, but the last pages were only treated to a cursory skim.

The only thing that saved the book the lowest possible rating was that it was very low cost, and wasn't offensively awful. You can probably spend your money better elsewhere, though.
