The characters are EXTREMELY well written... Not only does the reader feel the depression and frustration of the husband, but also his fear. I personally found the wife so annoying I wanted to punch her in the face myself. THAT is great writing... making the reader connect and feel. My favorite part was when the husband did not want to take the baby home with him from the hospital-- his fear was evident! The story flows well and keeps the reader's interest.
The downside? There is no ending. As book 1 is free, the ending is then provided in book 2. By most standards, a "book" should stand on its own in a series. This cannot.
At first I was a little disenchanted with this type of marketing, and I have seen other reviewers bash authors for doing this. However, I have come to the realization that I have purchased many books in the past which left me disappointed. Even by such names as Danielle Steel and Dean Koontz, I have been disappointed after the purchase. The reader needs to take into consideration when reading this book that it is basically an extended free preview. Rather than getting the 15% normally provided by Amazon, the reader can read a significant portion of the story. As a reader, this is a great way to gauge whether you want to continue the story. Other comments were made saying "I don't mind paying for a story" and gave this book a low rating. My response is that i DO mind paying for a bad story---so now that I have gotten an in depth look at this author's writing style and flow, I can better determine whether I wish to purchase the second half, or his other books.
Thank you Mr. Wells for creating such an engaging and interesting story!
Annie was one of those overbearing mothers that made me want to slap her every time she used the aggravating baby talk. Yet Neal was completely hands off and totally indifferent to Natasha and that bugged me too.So poor Natasha definitely had not won the parent jackpot.
I can't blame Annie for not believing Neal. Babies just don't talk at age 5 months. I can't blame her for threatening Neal with visiting a "special" hospital because Neal was absolutely behaving extremely strangely. I don't blame her for being worried & even scared for her daughter.
I believe that Neal's obvious dislike of his child was absolutely projection from how he hadn't been happy when he got Annie pregnant.He hated himself for the choices that he made and that was totally on him which he didn't seem to "get"
I absolutely loved this book and am giving it 4 stars mainly because Annie was overly annoying. That said,I will be buying book 2 in this series because I am dying to see how it turned out.
