1.0 out of 5 stars Hard going!!, 14 Jan. 2014
This review is from: Angelmaker (Paperback)
Well where to start. I didn't get on with this book. It was bought for me and since reading it the best thing I liked was it's cover, which is very pretty and intriguing.
I love fantasy, sci-fiction and mystery novels and have read oodles of these types of books over the years. I read this to the end as my daughter bought it for me. After persevering for half way through the book and still not finding much happening, it dragged on and had far too much unnecessary detail, i got a bit lax with reading every word. It needed a good editor and then it could have been half the size.

I loved Edie as she had some bite, but Jo was sooo....boring and nothing much seemed to happen so i started to speed-read @ the half way mark. About three quarters of the way through it began to get a lot better and even though i had sped-read it was easy to catch up as not much had been happening. Little tip bits were added so slowly that it was easy to understand what was going on as it wasn't a very diverse book; I didn't feel surprised by anything and when the Ruskinits ran off with Jo quite frankly i was thrilled and thought they could keep him.

If like me you need a bit more punch this book isn't for you but if you like a slow burner that's on the wordy side then this may be right up your street.
