Good series that the author indicates will probably not be finished... had I know I would never have wasted my time or money.

Let me begin by explaining that I LOVE British, Scottish and Irish literature and have read through several authors and series. Although this is entertaining, Mr. Cartmel consistently falls into the Xenophobic and mildly insulting American stereotypes in both this and the first Vinyl Detective novel. His American characters are obnoxious, violent and rude- I guess what he thinks all Americans are like? I'll skip the rest of this series- it's not bad, but not good enough to suffer through more overused, tired stereotypes. Pity he didn't take more from his Doctor Who days and put in a little more thought and a little less of the casual banalities. Can't we all just get along?

I can’t speak to the story- I couldn’t get past the overly dramatic and ridiculous narration and never made it to chapter 3.

What disappointed you about Crosstalk?

The very worst of romantic tripe... The only character even slightly likable is the niece, Maeve, and she's typical tween snark.

Has Crosstalk turned you off from other books in this genre?

the genre of romance? I was never turned on to it in the beginning- this book is completely mislabeled as anything else

Would you be willing to try another one of Mia Barron’s performances?

probably- she didn't have much to work with

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

crushing disappointment... I'm so dismayed this could come from the same author as the amazing Doomsday Book. Crosstalk is truly horrible and I literally had to try twice to make it past the 2/3 mark; I failed both times.
