I am not an English native speaker (I'm Dutch), but even I notice that, harsh as it sounds, that this writer just can't write very well.
At one point I started noticing how the author tried to describe things, but lack of talent/skill made her turn to a list of similes such as: "It sagged into the yard LIKE a broken limb". "It hung outward on a single hinge LIKE a lose tooth." "It was jutting into the grass LIKE an outstretched hand looking for help." "They open up LIKE a flimsy bag of marbles." "The left headlight pointed too far to the left LIKE it was searching for roadkill" "She was sobbing LIKE a girl who'd just lost everything". (And at that point in the story, she had just lost everything...oh dear...).
And it is not that I had to search this book for these jewels of descriptions: I lifted the above all from 1 or 2 consecutive pages. They were everywhere...like sand after a day at the beach.
Luckily the author had a thesaurus handy, and at one point an alternative for `LIKE was found':
"AS THOUGH he was being electrocuted (but then, of course, it was followed by:) LIKE an epileptic on the cusp of a grand mal."
How about this treasure:
"There was a sickening tinge of finality to their division, AS THOUGH they'd reached the end of something."
Yes! It was Final, like it was the End of something!Read more ›
Not the scariest book you will read, but has some good moments.
I have just finished it and feel not enough questions were answered.
On the plus side, the book races from start to finish.
In conclusion, i feel a bit short changed with this book, it had real potential as a meaty story, i found the 'baddie' a little too laughable, could have been so much more. I wont be looking for the next book im afraid
I usually take a week to read a book, fitting it in around writing and work (and sport). I'd read about 40% of Seed and settled down to read some more. I couldn't put it down. It is very unusual for me to read more than half a book in one go but with Seed I HAD to keep reading.
The pace of the story kept me interested throughout and the different narrative strands are expertly woven together to create a very satisfying story. For me this was a definite page turner (or Kindle next page button clicker - that doesn't quite have the same ring does it!). I wanted to know about the characters and how the events panned out.
I needed to decide what rating to give the book. Given that I couldn't put it down it had to get the full 5* treatment. I really enjoyed this book and recommend it to all.
Well done, Ania! I look forward to more stories.
I really loved the writing style of this book; simple, immediate and very believable prose that sucked me in from line one.
The story is centred around Jack, Aimee and their little family of two young daughters. Life is tough, money is in short supply and while Aimee's parents are on hand they don't approve of Jack. Jack is estranged from his own parents and the reason for this unfolds during the course of the book.
The horror starts one night when Jack is driving the family home. A pair of eyes that suddenly appear before him causing him to swerve the car and crash.
Those eyes belong to something from Jacks dark past; what he hoped was over forever isn't - it's back and with a vengeance.
Mixed in with a little back story here and there is a fast paced account of the return of Jack's nightmare and it is pure horror, quite graphic and shocking at times.
What, for me, could have been a five star+ read diminished considerably in the last chapter. The ending would have suited a very chilling short story and, as such, would have been fine but, for me , the investment of time and the attachments formed with the family through the length of a novel; (though it is quite a short one) meant that the gruesome outcome with no hope for this family or future generations was horrific in a way that gave no satisfaction or even a sense of closure. I felt flabbergasted by the certainty that a six year old girl was going to grow up through all the travails of life only to be horribly murdered by her own child.Read more ›
