Nauseating Christian Fiction,
This review is from: The Big 5-OH! (Kindle Edition)The Amazon product description says "Liv survived and maintained her faith" and perhaps that should have been a warning to me. Very early on in the book are several references to religion, such as "I know Jesus will take good care of you on the island". I persevered. I wish I hadn't. A little later the main character (Liv) goes to church and bursts into tears during a long sermon which contains numerous references to god and of course just happens to unsubtly elude to Liv's loss of faith. It was nauseating. At that point I realised I had been had. This is Christian Lit. I did not finish.
Do not buy this unless Christian Fiction is your sort of thing. Luckily I got it when it was free. It no longer resides on my Kindle. Aside from the religious overtones, the book is overly light, has unbelievable characters, a heavily sign-posted plot, and is full of mundane details such as what colour Liv paints her toe nails.
I do wish publishers/authors would declare when they are going to try to evangelise in a book.
