's review

bookshelves: dnf, dark-fiction

I gave it my best try and read a third before throwing in the towel. This book was just so incredibly not for me. I like weird and dark little stories but this tale about a woman afflicted by a condition where she falls into a death-like state and the dastardly bastard of a man she trusted, who naturally is doing her all kinds of wrong, isn't working for me in any way. The characters are not engaging me and the plot is not interesting to me so I'm calling it quits and starting something else.

I sure hope future Nocturnal Reader's Box picks are more horrorish than this or I'll have to be calling it quits with them too.

Char Next! (Sorry this didn't work for you. It didn't work for a lot of people.)

Bark I tried at least with hope in my heart but NOPE not for me. On to the next.

Kimberly I gave it an honest try because of NR's, but not for me, either. In all fairness, I'm guessing they "assumed" it was horror based on the author's previous releases.

Bark I'm going to look up his others instead.
