Don't bother.....unless you want to pay for more books
19 August 2018
So, I was determined to stay with this book because it sounded intriguing in the blurb!! It was complicated to the extent of foreign names and titles, and background information, but I tried to stick with it, but it just didn't captivate me.
But, as I said, I stuck with it thinking it'll get better. And it did;the story became more in-depth but it didn't get me hea or a conclusion of some sort, just another book to buy.
It didn't say this in the "blurb" otherwise I won't have read it.
I do think, given that info, I wouldn't have read it and thus wasted about 5 hours on a story for nothing, because, for at the end of it, I knew about the family " composition" but no further on. I also feel that if it was better written, ie less superficial stuff, and actual "fact" of the family, it could have been a bloody brilliant book over one book and not many! I've only had sight of the next book, which is the follow on book, but I'm not prepared to spend money on this, and be in the same position as I am at the end of the first book ie boring the next.
This is not what I want from an author; and whilst I could have come to that conclusion over one book, not god knows how many are out there.
I'm miffed at the author that they have done this. To me, it's money, money, money, not readers appreciation! I think there may be more books as "spin off" and I get that, but this just didn't do it for me. I'm not enthralled to buy the next book(s) and its not captivated me enough to think what's in the the next books, hence this is why I know, for me, this book is a bum!!!
