The writing of this novel was terrible. It was filled with bakery characters loving every desert they ever met. The pages were mostly filled with filler going from on chocolate desert to another. As a running gag it got old after the second scone, and went downhill from there. Then there were the characters. I found I never cared about any of them.
All of them.
Already did -- in a sale. I'll see if it's any better, but I have my doubts.
The abysmally written sex scenes.
In general, the writing was poor. The sex scenes so bad I fast-forwarded through them. The plot, story, and sense of Navajo religion enjoyable.
Good writing. Not being propaganda for the US military.
The lack of balance. The continued lies that Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro are horrendous, terrorist leaders. The sense that Mr. Bell acts like only British and American people are good, everyone else, bad...
No. Thought he did well. Too bad the subject is so slantedly written.
The normal, "too bad everything is black and white." Mr. Bell, scratch the surface a bit. US policies have supported dictators, trained death squads, killed many innocent people because they believe in the right to control the resources in their countries. The primary policy of our government fosters "in the interests of the US," is the right to own, which includes the right to murder, rape, and steal from third world countries. That some of them want to break free of these bonds is not surprising. That doesn't mean they automatically want to come to the US and murder everyone here. This book does nothing but foster that fear.
