Frustrating and disappointing,
This review is from: The Fahrenheit Twins and Other Stories (Kindle Edition)
I got the sample download of this on my Kindle and bought the book full of excitement for an unusual and interesting story which was developing. Only to discover that there was no conclusion to that story. Nor to any of the other stories in the book. This is very disappointing as these stories all start so well but then just stop. Another reviewer I read since has said it is like a collection of the first chapters of a series of different novels. And that is very much the case. As a wannabe writer myself I know its quite easy to come up with an idea but its quite hard to make that idea span into a fully formed narrative. That is where this book fails. Its like all the half-hearted attempts to start a novel or a proper short story all dumped into one book in a lazy attempt to spin some money out of them. I feel cheated. I've got a little over half way through and can't be bothered to read any more of it. Its a real shame as there is some excellent promise in the fragments of stories in the book, sadly they are not fulfilled. This was an utter waste of my money.
