What a stupid book, and what an irritating writer
on 7 January 2015
Got this from the library as I was looking for new writers. What a stupid book, and what an irritating writer. I really don't care for writers who have so little in terms of 'plot' that they have to use 'literary' devices like suddenly switching topic in the middle of the crime scene. Who cares whether the baby in her stomach gave a twinge or six? I'm not reading a maternity manual. I want to read a fast moving detective thriller. Every single time she gets to a point where the book is getting interesting, she inserts her private s***ty life. If there was that much going for the plot, she wouldn't have to do that. In addition, what a load of pretentious rubbish. How on earth the end hung together with the beginning, I have no idea. It appears that she didn't either.
