"OH MY! What a terrible book! Dont waste your money"
Where to start........ I down loaded this book not really knowing anything about the story line and just thought it was your average 'love story'. The actual concept could have been quite good i.e that sort of relationship struggling with such a damaged soul, but I am afraid for me it is so poorly written it ruins anything it could have been! The author obviously has a very limited knowledge of words and phrases as it repeats the same lines over and over again. At one point I thought if she says 'OH MY' one more time I may throw my MP3 out of the window. When the two main characters are emailing we have to hear the web address, date, time, subject, who its from EVERY single time. It gets very boring. Its a shame as I dont even mind the fact the the story is over the top it could have been quite a good story as it is so different from anything else. I did listen right to the end as I hate to waste my precious credits, but it was quite painful at times. I even found the sex boring after a while and I certainly wont bother with the sequels!!
I was unsure what to say in this review. To say I enjoyed listening to this seems wrong somehow, yet I really did enjoy it. At times it had me in tears and is quite harrrowing in places, especially thinking about the thousands of people going through abuse like this every day. I am not sure it really needed the two narrators as I thought the main one was very good.
"Stick with it!"
I am a big Peter James fan so bought this and was interested as it looked diffrent from his Roy Grace books. Like the previous review I too found the narrator slighly irritating but because I was gripped and intruiged by the story I stuck with it! I am so glad I did as I thorougly enjoyed it and was hooked to the end. A really great story with a gentle warning about science messing with nature, there is always a price to pay!
