Sylvia Dugan You have described exactly what I was thinking as I read this book (which I just finished). I, for one, agree with your assessment.

Jeanette Not even half way through and I read a few reviews because I'm finding the writing skill holding an essential lack. So I read your review and that is EXACTLY what is bothering me about this read- and yes, the modern portions are below par absolutely. You nailed this review.

Laura Thank you! I've felt a little bad for being harsh, but reading the book felt so odd and unbalanced that I had to throw some thoughts out there about it.

Megan My thoughts on this book were similar, and I had the same irritated reaction to seeing "shock of red hair" or a variant thereof so many times!

C I literally found your review after googling "shock of red hair" because I was so irritated by its third occurrence, never mind 6 or 7 (I lost count but was yelling "NOOOOOO!" out loud by the fourth instance). I didn't even bother counting "green shoots" and "bottom waving in the air" :)
