2.0 out of 5 stars Missing child, missing depth, 9 Oct 2012

This review is from: The Other Daughter (Kindle Edition)
This is a short story on the effect on a family when a child goes missing, never to be found. I tried it because it sounded interesting and was one of the most popular on the list of free Kindle books. I wasn't going to leave a review but I took slight issue with it being touted as a `number one bestseller' when it's not that well written.

In its current state it lacks emotional depth and the author could do with getting a handle on author intrusion and show/tell issues as the heavy handed writing style takes the reader out of the story. The characters are so annoying I wanted to shake them (which might just be me) and the plot is faintly ridiculous. Sorry to not be more positive, I just think it was uploaded too soon and needs to be better developed.
