It's a shame that this story is let down by spelling and punctuation mistakes. Personally I don't like conversation that has bad language but I understand that this story is about people who routinely use swear words. It's a very moving story. I'm giving it 3 stars because I liked it but with a bit of polish it could have got 4.
Julie Elizabeth Powell, author of Gone said:
"It's amazing how little a good writer needs to create an interesting story. With a cast of colourful characters, we are led on this snowy journey to a surprising end."
To start with the production job is shoddy. The text is badly framed for the pages with large gaps in the margins. It looks unprofessional. Furthermore there are grammatical errors throughout the book.
The story itself is very clunky, especially the dialogue. Some of the conversation is banal to the extreme, and in many instances dialogue is followed by unnecessary explanations of how it was spoken, in what way, etc. You could use this text in a class about how not to write fiction. (reference this book with Elmore Leonard's "10 Rules of Writing" or Stephen King's "On Writing" to see how many boxes it ticks).
I work in a bookshop. We have had this title for a year and it has never sold. It is a constant source of embarrassment for the person who ordered it.
One and Five star reviews are not to be trusted in my opinion. There is nothing more to say.
A recommended read for those that like to hide under the duvet.
