Great Characters - great ending

As others have mentioned the writing in his book does sometimes seem a little amateurish but I found the overall story made this a great listen. By halfway through the book I found myself totally immersed in the story of the main characters and willing them the outcome they deserved. I found the narration only added to the depth of the characters and really brought to life a very emotional end to the book.

Poor writing

Very badly written, felt like a school kid’s effort. The amateur sounding narration did not help at all. Part way though the second chapter was as far as I got, so I couldn’t comment on the story itself, which did seem interesting from the description.
