1.0 out of 5 stars Not thrilled with this supposed thriller., April 13, 2007
This review is from: The Bone Box: Confines of Life and Death (Paperback)
I found The Bone Box to be a very disappointing book. The grammar and sentence structure was extremely distracting and painful to read at times. I kept thinking that this book read like a first draft that had been rushed to publication without any help from an editor. As a matter of fact, there is no credit given to a "publisher". Hmm, self-published, perhaps? Although, the Jesus family ossuaries is a captivating premise, the surrounding story was inconsistent and downright unbelievable. I hope the next time Mr. Bernstein gets an idea for a book he can find a decent publisher who can provide him with a well needed editor.

I really appreciate your review, Ms. Grant. Different people have different literary tastes. However, I don't understand where you found fault with the "grammar and sentence structure." If that's because I sometimes wrote the dialogue in narrative style, without quotation marks and separate paragraphs, I did that on purpose, to make the action flow better, even if that's somewhat unconventional. I do try to use a distinctive style, and dislike much editing, or I wouldn't have published an original novel about a subject as controversial as the Talpiot tomb.

Best wishes to you.
