Inheritance audiobook cover art

Way too self absorbed!

I clearly should have delved deeper into the author before downloading Inheritance. Ms. Shapiro seems to have a strong following, which is great for her and her fans. For me, I guess I'm really shallow and find the drama, soul shattering and life affirming story to be self indulgent and pretentious.

The Old Drift audiobook cover art

Maybe the author was overly ambitious?

The Old Drift is a multi-part saga. The story and writing hang together well in the first two parts, but then things get very messy in the third part. Too bad as the character development and plots and sub-plots are engrossing . Part 3 reads more like vignettes than the type of tight and effective story-telling in the first two parts.

The Malta Exchange audiobook cover art

Having been to Malta, the Malta Exchange paints a vivid and realistic portrait of the island and its history. But the story is thin and the characters ordinary.
