2.0 out of 5 stars A Little Juvenile For Me, 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Either Side of Midnight (Kindle Edition)
This wasn't for me though it came highly recommended via a Twitter pal and the reviews were mostly very good. I wondered in a couple of places if English was the author's first language only to see she grew up over here so it can't be. Plus a lot of it seemed to be written geared to the Young Adult audience or teens in quite juvenile language. Also for me there was too much of the old god-bothering !!
The story sounded an intriguing one and I liked the reasoning behind the title. There were some very funny lines in it too. I just got a little bored by it and packed it in at 37%.
There were odd sentences as I mentioned earlier which made me wonder about English as a foreign language-like "the hotel wall expired" and "the worst thing was weighing down on small stones" then "the odd figure-out was dark". However many times I read these they made little sense.
There were a few words dropped from sentences such as you/and/she then tousle was used in place of tussle, practise was consistently spelt that American way for some reason, ark was spelt as arc and my final straw was trace used in place of trance. I gave up then.
If it had been tidied up a little I'd maybe have stuck with it after getting this far as the actual back story did sound a good idea.
