2.0 out of 5 stars A good book struggling to get out (but not succeeding), 29 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: My Sister's Keeper (Kindle Edition)
This isn't exactly a bad book but it certainly isn't a great one either. If you suspend disbelief the book carries you along at breakneck speed and with considerable gusto. It's when you actually think about what you're reading that the problems become apparent. In a nutshell the story is so wildly unlikely that it cannot be taken seriously although I have to admit it's actually quite an entertaining read with some excellent descriptive passages, particularly when the hero gets caught in a storm in a small boat. There is a really good book struggling to get out here and I'd love to see a writer of the calibre of, say, James Lee Burke tackle the same basic plot which starts out so promisingly but quickly degenerates into coincidence and improbability. If you can live with the unlikely storyline and the annoying switches between first and third person narrative the book will help pass a long flight or train journey but otherwise it's a missed opportunity.
