What to say...

I bought the Kindle edition of this book. It was an extremely frustrating read.

Was it even edited? If so, a note to the author: find a new editor. The misspellings, poor punctuation (or complete lack of), and grammatical errors made this an atrocious read, and is a large part of my negative review.

That aside, the story copies much from a Twilight-esque point of view. The characters needed to be more defined, and events did not flow appropriately, often leaving big holes and blanks in the story. The only part of the story that felt compelling was the time spent in France. This should have been built upon.

I think that the author has a significant amount of potential. The book needed some serious editing (which again, I hope it didn't actually GET...), and some fleshing out prior to being published in any venue.

I don't typically give harsh reviews, but when I spend 4 days on a book that probably warranted one... I get a little frustrated.

message 2: by Jeremiah (new)

Jeremiah Johnson I've had this problem with many ebooks. Most publishers seem to think they don't need to treat them with the same respect they do a print version so they just run them through an OCR program and sell them as is. Sadly though, I've also seen s number of newer authors whose hardcover books are riddled with spelling and/or grammatical errors. Everyone's trying to save a buck and we end up holding the short end of the stick.
