2.5-3.0

I won this in a Goodreads giveaway. It wasn't bad. The stories are 'classic,' often seen plots and you usually see the end coming. So, no new ground is really covered. The pacing is fine though and other than a couple inconsistencies in tense, the editing is fine. But for me, the writing let the whole thing down. It just didn't flow very well and it was almost all tell, with very little show. Which is a criticism almost too common to bother making, but there is a reason authors are encouraged not to write this way. It's hard to connect to.
