Could have been worse, could have been better.
on 25 January 2012
Read the sample, it grabbed me enough to pay the £1.50 or so for the whole thing and I finished it in a day.
The author's style is somewhat interesting, it seems to shift around a lot, suddenly a chapter will be in a totally different style and until you get your head around it it's kind of confusing. On top of that, the author has his own voice and he's not afraid to use it, which jarred slightly.
Last gripe, it felt like a kids book. That's not always a bad thing but here I think it just pulled the story down a bit. It could have done with being a little longer, a little more descriptive in the right places, and a little better paced I think.
The story itself wasn't quite what I expected though so that was a plus point, but overall I don't know I'd recommend it. It's not a bad read, but there's better books out there.
It was nice to read something British, though!
