1.0 out of 5 stars Tough to read, too tough maybe, 19 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Monster Files (Kindle Edition)
Firstly I LOVE the paranormal and especially cryptozoology, it's a fascinating area of study but this book reads like a high school essay book (and despite Nick being English it's obviously been written for the American market place and dollar), there's a lot of 'big words' thrown in for the sake of it and a lot needs re-reading as it doesn't make any sense and the end result is it totally dilutes or ruins the point Nick is trying to make or reveal to us.

The subject matter itself is sensational enough, it really doesn't need 'padding out' in such a manner, and I really tried to see past it and I was ultimately gutted to have to give up on it, but I couldn't take any more of the writing a style and the frequent odd choice of words and phrases, so despite the fairly hefty fee of 7 odd quid (for a kindle book!) I couldn't takes no more and have left it, I'll probably try again in a few weeks but my guess is it will be just as tough and annoying to read and I'll just delete it.

Might fit more to our American cousins but honestly and no disrespect to Nick whom I know must make his living out of this I'd give this one a miss.
