A Beautiful Truth,
This review is from: A Beautiful Truth (Kindle Edition)
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
I had a strange relationship with this book. Most of the time I found things a bit difficult. I didn't feel that attached to the characters as characters- more sympathised with their situation. It was written as if in a chimp's voice (or at least that's what I presume it was meant to be). In a way that's good, because it's different and it makes you see a side of the story which you wouldn't usually see. However it did make it more difficult to read, and to engage in.
Having said that I was surprised by how much certain events impacted me. It made me think that maybe I felt more for the characters than I had realised.
It was interesting how McAdam was able to show different sides of the story without losing any empathy for characters on various sides of the arguments.
I also found that I preferred the second part of the story, when the two stories joined together. However I think this side of the story wouldn't have the same impact if I hadn't already known the characters.

I'm sorry but I can't take seriously any 'review' by someone who spells the word losing 'loosing'.

And I'm sorry you can't be polite when you spot a typo. Spelling doesn't make a difference to a person's opinion of a book.
I will correct the error though, thanks for letting me know.
