I have always managed to read from start to finish every novel I’ve reviewed, although some were difficult to complete for a variety of reasons. I believed that since I’d bought a book, I was going to read it, and only then would I post a review.

Not this time. Now I actually found a book so awful from first page to last that I realized by the end of Chapter One it was completely unreadable. I had struggled through until the end of Chapter Eight when I noticed my highlighting and comments were mo

I just finished reading my copy of “Day of Revenge” by author Deanna Proach and I’ll be honest and admit I’m rather disappointed.

While I do not own a copy of Ms. Proach's book, one of my reviewers at The Deepening World of Fiction has reviewed the novel for me.

Why don't you decide for yourself: the review can be found at http://reviews.thedeepening.com/2011/....

I just finished reading it and I can't say that it was my favorite book. I had high expectations since I thought placing a story post-French revolution and to be on the side of the anti-revolutionnaries would be very interesting. However, I felt there was not enough twists in the story for it to be gripping.

It was just an ok read for me...

There could be a decent story in there somewhere, but the writing is so unequivocally awful I couldn't make it through the third chapter to find it.
