A storyline. I know it was a fractured fairytale, but some original thought (without the over reliance on sex) would have been nice.
The beginning. Any book that has to rely on kicking a man in the privates and talking about his engorged penis is off to a bad start.
So disappointed. Terrible
I liked the human side the author's created. I didn't always agree with some of the characteristic choices the authors assigned to some of the well known characters, but I guess that's the beauty of literature, we all bring personal expectations to things we read.
Macbeth was interesting to me as a novel because I hate teaching it to my seniors. I was hoping to connect to it more, and I think it worked. I'm going to give it another try; I might even play one of the battle scenes for the kids.
I think the battle scenes were really well written. It was not difficult to picture the scenes, especially at the end when Macduff challenges Macbeth. I often had trouble with Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. Sometimes their relationship was weakly drawn.
I haven't listened to him before - I will though. I liked him.
Other Tami Hoag fans might think this book was great.
I usually enjoy Tami Hoag when I want a great potato chip read (little literary value, just fun). This one missed the mark.
I had it solved within pages of meeting the guilty party. That always creates a sense of disappointment for me. I was sad!
I'm listening to both James Joyce's A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game. So far they're both great.
None, I guess Anne was okay. I do usually enjoy Kirsten Potter though. I'll find another novel she reads and try again.
Most of them. Vince, the haggard FBI guy, was just too much, too flawed, too perfect, too smart, too typical. Not believable.
I won't give up on Tami Hoag. You just can't win them all.
I HATE books that are about shallow relationships. This story was just so predictable with a bit of unrealistic sex thrown in for good measure. No value to this story at all. I wish I could remember why I bought it - I must have been insane, or hit the wrong button. The only people I'd recommend this to are the shallow people who enjoy those icky Shades of Grey books. Waste of time!
Fortgang was fine, it was the story that was lacking.
All of it.
