Read from August 10 to 13, 2011

I read lots and lots of free books. Mostly because I'm a cheapskate, but also because I am curious about books that writers give away. It's not surprising that free books are full of typos and many would benefit from some attention from a professional editor - the writer has invested time but probably nor money into stories they are willing to give away.

A. Sparrow is imaginative and created a captivating world and concept with Xenolith. I cared about the characters and couldn't wait for Peregrine so I could find out what happened to them. The book feels like a draft almost, but the basic story is there and shines through.

If you cannot abide typos, odd word choices, or other small details that would probably be smoothed out by a proofreader or an editor, don't read Peregrine. However, if you can overlook those things in the name of a good story, I recommend it, particularly if you've read Xenolith. It could be confusing without reading Xenolith first.
