Alana Kerr adds so much to the book with her beautiful accent. Although at times I felt a bit lost by her command of the verbiage, very much alien to me, it added to the feeling of being taken to a new place; a foreign place.
In the first chapters of the book it moves very fast and I felt I should have a dictionary and perhaps take a few notes - the next thing I know I am no longer a mere voyeur but I
have been captured and I am no longer listening I am in the throws of flux.
Kerr gives you the dialect that makes the words alive rather than flat. I have a wonderful imagination but her voice is so perfect for this book I'm glad I heard it first.
I was not brought to tears by this book nor did I ache from laughter. I was able to lose myself, my world vanished completely, and I ended it sitting in my car feeling like I had just returned from a vacation.
This is not young adult literature. Don't stress over the first few chapters. Enjoy them.
No, the characters were dull and lifeless, the story was equivalent to a book on the great American B&B's with an author getting so caught up in the sheets thread count they forget to tell you how comfortable the mattresses were.
The book didn't turn me away from the genre but the genre should think about turning the next book Mr. Brown writes down.
For some reason it seemed like there was voice over work done in areas and it ruined the flow. Mid chapter his voice would change and it felt like you could hear, *insert drink diet _______ here* waiting for check to clear.
The first book I ask for and talked about so much I received two hard back copies for Christmas and read the book in a sitting- sometimes writers don't know when to stop milking the same cow.
