This story had great potential, but it seemed more like a rough draft than something ready to be published. The reader did an okay job with what she had to work with, but if I was her, I'd be irate that something was published with so many mistakes. Was it laziness or what? She trips on some words and has to repeat a phrase, more than once. Now anybody reading a book would do this, but to not go back and re-record that paragraph is just ridiculous! The same descriptive words are used over and over. The protagonist keeps getting hurt, near fatally, and then the "next day" those injuries are forgotten as she is injured again.
I don't usually write reviews because I'm not very good at describing what I've read. I'm also not a big critic. I enjoy "brain candy" type novels as well as serious ones. This was just so poorly executed that I feel like I need to warn others.
So, in a nutshell; the story had potential to be great but its execution was terrible. Blatant mistakes, unbelievable injury, in great need of a thesaurus and an editor!
Edit, edit, edit. This would be okay if it were a first draft. With a lot of polishing up it could have been great.
I don't think it was her fault...
Disappointment. There were so many mistakes I couldn't do the whole "suspension of disbelief" thing.
It's been a long time since I couldn't stop listening and go to sleep! I finished at 3am and contemplated downloading the 2nd book right away. (On here buying it now, the next morning.)
