What were the proof readers on?
on 20 November 2013
After having read the first book in the series which came for free I was charmed by the characters and felt really inside the story. Having bought the sequel, it fails to create the same atmosphere and missed the mark due to a number of reasons.
First, the beginning of the book is confusing. There seems to be a gap between the previous book and this one where a lot has happened. This threw me off and I had to really pull through the incoherent situations to finally get some sort of understanding as to what had happened (which you get about 85% into it).
Then there is the general lack of description of the environment. It can be argued that the imagination should be used to depict the scene but there is very little information to get that imagination going.
Third and most important point about this book would be the amount of spelling mistakes. Not just typos but we're talking about all out bad grammar here, as if some sentences were written a group of LSD tripping hippies. It just turns what should be a relaxing read about the apocalypse and what things would be like when s*&t hits the fan into a tiresome succession of irritating moment due to bad English.
Couldn't get through the second book.
