1.0 out of 5 stars Where do I even start...?, 28 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dark Creations: Gabriel Rising (Part 1) (Kindle Edition)
I am glad I did not pay for this.

I rarely give out harsh reviews as I usually have a fair amount of appreciation for most teen lit (I usually expect some level of immaturity) but this was just too much for me.

I wrote my own pre review of the first 6 chapters because I was THAT frustrated by the author. I can not express how much I loath a writer who constantly uses complicated words and phrases in an attempt to cover up the fact that she has no decent dialog to share! The dialog was immature and annoyingly 'high school'.

Melissa-
She is one of the most boring characters I have ever had the displeasure of reading about. She had no qualities which made me relate to her and the author tried to make up for that with crappy 'fart' jokes, which just cheapend the already 'FREE' book even more.

The author made sure to give us boring, though I'm sure they were intended to be smart, chapters on others view point over and over again! This was done in an attempt to make me, the reader, feel as if there was an actual story line building, THERE WAS NOT.

Essentially the writer has given us half of an unfinished amateur book which is set over a two day period in which an emotionless robot somehow manages to feel, pathetic, feelings about a boring self absorbed girl. Said girl feels she is unattractive yet still believes she is going to gain a romantic evening with a weird, apparently stunning, boy she has just met... at a forest. We just know where this is going... AND DUN DUN DUUUUN! She is almost raped and in he comes saving the day and then her dad finds out and threatens to kill him then he doesn't then they tell the police and then this thing happened and then something else happens and then it ends.

UTTER DRIBBLE. I feel I needed to give this harsh review as I was unable to read a review before I downloaded it and wasted half a day of my life.

Who would I recommend this too? A middle school child with her nieve perception of 'love at first sight'.

There is nothing about this work that makes me want to waste my money on the next mind numbing instalment.

WASTE OF BRAIN CELLS (shame because it could have been brilliant)

I wonder if that's why the blurb states absolutely nothing about the book.
I'm in middle school and i think love at first sight is utter and complete crap by the way.
