Read from March 27 to 30, 2012

Meandering and needlessly repetitive Ford's lack of narrative drive and ham-fisted attempt at foreshadowing makes for a tedious snooze fest

a couple of the buyers have read this and had the same experience - the whole thing is exposition - you ever hear of that admonition 'show dont tell'? judging from this one he hasnt - not up to his usual high standard IMO
