Offered by Macmillan CA
Price: CDN$ 10.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Tedious, July 21 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Like so many books this story is bogged down by dialogue. The dialogue is tedious and superficial. So many writers stuff their books with words that mean nothing. Give me a good story told beautifully.

This review is from: Mrs. Poe (Kindle Edition)
I liked the spooky plot. It is a story of suspense and also one can see the way the world was then and the morals of the time. Many people suffered illnesses in those times.
I would read more from this author.

This is a story of good and bad men. If only there were open minds. The story gives us both sides of people.

I liked the atmospheric style of the book. The sea spoke to me. The story was good and kept me turning pages. The sub plot was fine.


Charleston: A Novel

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring, May 27 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Lame excuse for a book. I skipped so much of the book and decided I couldn't continue and I hate buying a book and not finishing it. There was too much dialogue and it was lame. Some of the dialogue was-did you sleep well-and-yes I did, did you?
Anyway, not for me.

Great book and great writer. This is a page turner. I couldn't put it down. Looking forward to reading another book by this author. The author makes you feel the heat of the bayou and the terrors of the night. Very atmospheric and great character development.


Ray Davies: A Complicated Life
Ray Davies: A Complicated Life
Price: CDN$ 12.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Long and dry, May 5 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Way too much information. This book read like an encyclopedia. No emotion. Writing an encyclopedia does not a good writer make. I did not need to know about the political state of England and all the rest of this information. That is a different story. All the long words do not make a writer tell a good story. Too much and no emotion. Artists are about emotions. How can you make the story of the Kinks dull. This writer did and used a thousand pages to do so.
Three words.
Way too long!!!

This review is from: The Nightingale (Kindle Edition)
A beautiful story and also very sad. Well written and a page turner. I definitely recommend this book and Kristen Hannah is a great story teller. At times it is hard to read but KH keeps hope alive.
