Excellent story, irritating style
on 18 November 2012
I really enjoyed this tale and the development of Gio and B's romance and relationship is really well played out. The story is expanding very well too, without it seeming to be 'looking around' for the next direction. Overall 'This same earth' was a great read and an excellent 'holiday' book.
BUT!!! The constant smirking, snickering and snorting that accompanies almost every conversation between Gio and B made it seem at times like I was reading a chapter in My Little Pony. It was sooooo irritating! It really let down an otherwise very well crafted and written story. Hunter has an excellent imagination regarding story telling but seemingly a limited knowledge of suitable verbs. So I have to knock marks off for clunky dialogue.
But I have ordered the next book so I'm willing to give Hunter another chance :) !
