upon reflection i'd say it was a bland book
on 20 July 2011
You might not think this is a fair review because i'd only read halfway, but I take the view that a book shouldn't be boring you through the majority of it's pages while it drags you to a 'satisfying' ending. I was certain there wasn't a satisfying ending to arrive at with this one.
It's a great plot device, an evilly enchanted mirror. But it's poorly used by Masterton.
The characters; two-dimensional. The narrative flow; pap. It's all too familiar. It reads like the output of a hack writer.
How it tallied five 5-star reviews is puzzling. Was it their first taste of horror? They need to look in a mirror and ask themselves ;)
