2.0 out of 5 stars Repetitive and corny, 14 Aug. 2008
By 
This review is from: Daughters of Fire (Paperback)
My favourite type of book to read is fiction which is based on history so I was really looking forward to this book by Barbara Erskine, but I was really disappointed. Whilst some of the sections that described iron age Britain were undoubtedly fascinating, the story as a whole was so repetitive, the same things happened over and over again. The main modern-day character, Viv, went back in time in her dreams or waking visions, came back to normality, saw a ghost, was frightened and then there was a corny one liner about the evil Medb character trying to take over the story. I quite liked it when it was just Viv that experienced the past, but when other historical figures started posessing other modern day characters it became ridiculous and I didn't stop moaning about how silly my book was until I finally finished it. The ending was rubbish as well. I don't like giving up on a book once I've started but this was a real struggle to the finishing line and I was very relieved to put it down at last.
