Slow . . . so slow, it was gathering Dust!
on 15 January 2016
I've been a huge fan of Ms. Cornwell's for many, many years but I have to say that I actually put 'Dust' down a third of the way through - the storyline as it was, left me feeling so very tired, so very bored. Basically I gave up on it.
The story didn't really seem to be going anywhere, it was a case of 'come on then, where are we going with this, when does the action begin?' It really did drag out between the old detective she'd worked with and the supressed age old feelings between the two of them. The pace was oh so very slow . . . I closed it and don't think I'll pick it up again sadly, as I really do rate Ms. Cornwell.
