From the description I thought this book would be good, but sadly I was disappointed. In the book, the author portrays Newfoundland as an awful, desolate place. The story was dreary, bleak and depressing. I am usually not this critical but felt compelled to leave a comment.
The publisher comments "Newfoundland is a dreary rock in the north Atlantic beset by lousy weather".
This is ridiculous... Newfoundland is one of the most beautiful places on earth. (Mountains, ocean, incredibly friendly people, vast areas of unspoiled nature and wildlife) .. The weather is moderated by the ocean, much like Seattle weather - where temperatures are rarely extreme.
Newfoundland is one of Canada's prime tourist destinations.
While the writer depicts some dreary scenes within New York and Newfoundland, the publisher's above comment is highly inappropriate - and should be retracted from your website.
