Simplistic and silly
on 16 August 2014
This was the first novel I've read by this author.
As a resident of Edinburgh, I was drawn to the books setting. I hadn't realised the book was one in a series. The first thing that hit me was that all the characters were introduced in one confusing paragraph so I had no idea who was who. Secondly, the Americanisms used by the narrator were really jarring and the author slipped in and out of them with no consistency. Thirdly, how come everyone (bar Nate) lived in some of the most expensive streets in Edinburgh!
The author's writing style was extremely simplistic with no character development whatsoever. A style more suited to teen fiction than adult literature.
I won't be looking out the other books in the series!
