1.0 out of 5 stars The dire, the dreary and the depressing., 12 Aug. 2008
By 
This review is from: The Outcast (Paperback)
The good:
-The interesting plot.

The bad:
-The wooden characters.
-The pages of drivel on things that didn't seem to serve any purpose to the story.
-The writing style.

The ugly:
-The dire dialogue.
-The dreary introversion.
-The depressing waste of so many great opportunities to build tension and drama.

I find it depressing that this book has got so much positive attention. I want writing to pick me up, fling me round the room a few times and leave me dumped in a mess on my floor, trying to work out what just happened to me. This book did nothing more than irritate my senses in the same way that a bluebottle might if it were in my study, "crashing against the glass" and "doing a series of small somersaults".

It could have been great...
