This horse wasn't a winner !!
on 2 June 2014
I felt that the basic concept of the book was good but unfortunately it failed to deliver a consistently strong enough storyline to realise it's full potential.
The author's style of writing made it confusing to follow as the book's narrtive was delivered by a myriad of characters throughout and was futher complicated by an everchanging timeline flitting between the past and the present. Given these complexities it often read like the script to a low budget spaghetti western.
There were parts of the book I really enjoyed but equally there were parts that made me cringe they were so bad . Unfortunately the further I got into the story the more of the latter there were and on this basis he whole potential of the book was seriously diluted to make it nothing more than a throw away beach read.
I would really need convincing that the author has really upped his game if I were to read anymore of his work.
