Editor needed for surplus adjectives!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hannibal: Enemy of Rome (Hannibal 1) (Paperback)
I was interested to read this book because Hannibal's wars with Rome in popular fiction have been neglected. However, my enjoyment of what should have been an exciting read was marred by the author's prolific use of surplus adjectives, especially in dialogue. A decent editor would have pruned the text by cutting redundant and often irritating surplus adjectives describing what and how something is being said. The author could learn from Bernard Cornwell or Con Iggulden about how this should be done.
