Lemoine is an over-excitable, neurotic whose sensitivities threaten to swamp the book – I found myself losing all patience with his posturing on more than one occasion. Then there’s the medical jargon – if you have a degree in medicine then this book is for you, otherwise you might find yourself skipping whole pages to get back to the storyline. It also has what is becoming JM’s trademark – incorrect spelling and mistakes throughout. He tells us he’s a journalist and editor but clearly doesn’t seem to apply these skills to his own books. More annoying than anything else.
That said, I’m a great fan of JM. ‘ Past Imperfect’ was brilliant. But the 4 stars I’ve awarded were more for the skilful plotting and writing than the oft implausible characters.
The plots are very good, and his characters are interesting. Which is why I am still reading him. But I'm getting seriously tired of the grammatical errors and bad English. Do editors at his publishers not proof read his books? Or anyone else? (And his efforts at writing 'foreign' accents are embarrassing.) I can't believe such gaffes as, "her and her parents" (did this or that.) SHE and her parents is the correct form. Subjective case. As for this: "He stole himself against" - it's just laughable. The expression is "to steel oneself against" (some emotion or other.) So the past tense is "He steeled himself". I can only imagine that the author thought the expression was "to steal oneself" and that therefore the past tense was "stole". I was boggle-eyed. [The above examples are probably not from this book - I've remembered them from previous books. But there are more silly gaffes in this one.]
But I'll probably read this author again, as his books are good and very readable - even if every six pages or so I'm brought up short by a grammatical faux pas. It's such a pity.
Then it just ended.
No desire to find out in book 2, no teasers for the plot. Nothing to answer.
I will use my time to read something else.

A very long and rambling tale - lots of 'biting the lower lip'. Poorly written with badly drawn characters. Every plot predictable and no surprises or suspense.Published 27 days ago by Kindle Customer
