19 minutes... needs a good editor
on 12 October 2009
My first Picolt novel was My Sister's Keeper. I enjoyed that very much and have picked up a couple of others since as I wanted an 'easy' read. I say 'easy read' because they are quick reads even when they tackle difficult subjects.
This was a difficult subject - why does this sort of thing happen? I wasn't sure I wanted to know. But I got stuck in nonetheless and overall I enjoyed the storyline. But I got confused a couple of times and I think that's down to the editing (or lack of).
Unfortunately these books are sometimes a little predictable - but then that's one of the things about easy reads which I can read on the train.
