2.0 out of 5 stars Could have been really good. Reads like a script of a made-for-TV movie, 30 Nov. 2011

This review is from: Clouded Rainbow (Kindle Edition)
The premise sounded good, but the beginning was so stilted and then changed tack that I had to go back and re-read, then I realised that the start had been a daydream. So, I stayed with it, but I didn't get much emotion between the husband and wife, which made me wonder about their relationship, but the tale itself was meant to be about love and commitment, so I read on.

Following a car accident on their wedding anniversary, Lois is catapulted from the car into a river and Roger is trapped. We're told that they're taken to different hospitals, where 'Roger' comes to, confused, but cognisant that he has has to find her, and he escapes from the hospital, meeting and interacting with a series of people on his quest.

Meanwhile, Lois is in a coma, but detectives have pieced things together and realise who she is, and then try to find Roger...

Ok, I can see how the author meant for this to be all about enduring love, but for me, it didn't work as I didn't get to know enough about the characters and I for one though that their relationship was self-serving, self-centred and almost artificial. Like if it had been set in a more 'real' world with people who had to go to work to be able to afford their lives, they wouldn't be a couple. So, I didn't feel the emotions and commitment the author meant, or which I think at least he meant, to convey.

I finished it, but didn't feel for it or enjoy it, and I felt that it might have worked better in a visual format e.g. a made-for-TV movie. There is a point to my last comment - I can't say more, as it would spoil the tale. It attempted to be clever, but like I said, in print it didn't quite pull it off.

Overall, could have been better if visual, not a book, but kind of ok-ish if you have nothing better to read.
