The concept was quite good, but the execution execrable
on 9 July 2014
The concept was quite good, but the execution execrable. I'm seldom tempted to give up on a book but, having a keen interest in the Plantagenets generally, and Richard III in particular, I wanted to know the ending, and so laboured my way through dreary conversations, highly unlikely scenarios (especially those featuring the so-called Royal Family), and frequent misuse of the English language. I found myself mentally rewriting virtually every sentence as I read - not a great recommendation!
