Throughout there are typos, spelling mistakes and errors. For example the lead character is, we are told, a former Royal Marine (part of the Navy) but is subsequently referred to as a soldier; we're told that he is a former bomb disposal expert, a trade not open to Royal Marines. There are numerous others littering the manuscript throughout. The chapter pagination is all over the place, so too some of the paragraph indents. These do terribly detract from the overall reading pleasure.
And this is a shame because the basic plot is imaginative and, as others have noted on here, quite readable. As a holiday novel it helped pass a hot day on the sun lounger but I was left quite exasperated that the book ended without any conclusion and one had to purchase Part 2 to read on I won't!). This is incredibly frustrating, not least as there was an awful lot of prose that could have been cut earlier to contain the plot within one volume, not two, and as such marks this book down significantly.
No doubt the author reads these reviews: I hope so! Therefore I constructively suggest that: 1) You have a writing talent that will be enhanced by procurement of a proper editor (and that means getting a proper publisher, 2) greater attention to factual detail, 3) CONTAIN YOUR WORK IN ONE BOOK! Aggghhh.
Cannot really recommend as was so exasperated at reading this.
After a particularly long day at work he returns home to find his house burned down with his wife and daughter both inside, dead. He suffers horrific burns as a result of trying to rescue them.
After a long period of convalescence he finds himself emotionally empty, unable to grieve for his family. That is until the day when Abdul Hamid, the man accused of killing his daughter and wife gets off scott free on a technicality.
Dermott decides to get his own revenge on Hamid. He uses social networking sites to track down those closest to Hamid and inflicts his own special brand of 'justice' to avenge his loved ones. Dermott uses various disguises in his 'work' and as things progress he becomes more and more wrapped up in the individual personalities he is using and ultimately more unstable in real life.
You can't help but empathise with Dermott, what he has been through and the injustice of it. However, throughout the book as his actions escalated I was left questioning whether 'an eye for an eye' can ever be justified.
This is a fascinating story which really makes you consider your own use of social networking sites and how much information a stranger could find out about your own life if they really tried.
I absolutely loved this book; it was so easy to read and I just could not bear to put it down for more than a few minutes at a time. Consequently I ended up reading it in a day and feeling sad that I had finished it. The book isn't concluded at the end, the final page gives us the message that part two will be released shortly I will definitely be keeping a look out for it.Read more ›
grotesque killing to give it a miss so I stopped reading it and deleted it from my account. A step too far in my opinion and a bit
too gruesome for me.
And you have to pay to read the end? I recommend giving this a pass.
I hadn't realised quite how graphic some of the descriptions of the murders would be but this was far outweighed by my irritation caused by the dreadful spelling mistakes, sometimes at least two on a page or even in a paragraph. I am surprised this hasn't been picked up in more reviews. Quite frankly I downloaded it because it was free but if I had realised it was only a part one and that I would have to pay for the second part I probably wouldn't have bothered. Even a free book surely shouldn't have this amount of errors. Isn't that what a spell-checker is for?
An original plot unnecessarily spoiled.
