Some things which worked against the pacing for me was the fact it is a dialogue heavy manuscript where the speaker isn't always clearly confined, which I sometimes found confusing. Changes in sentence and paragraph structure might have helped this. I felt providing scene details and background information would have been better served in smaller portions at a time, or at set times within a scene which didn't isolate sentences of a conversation. Such as in the scene when David meets his father again after long years of separation, during a rather emotional exchange, we're panned off to a couple of paragraphs describing the room before it picks up again. There are some editing issues, especially towards the end but I would attribute this to the fact I was supplied with a final manuscript in .doc form and not the finished .pdf version.Read more ›
This is basically a character and culture study, and as such it excels. The pacing, however, is laborious and it takes quite a while for the plot to advance. I felt at some points the story stalled and much of the reading was repetitious in nature. The final quarter of the book picks up a good deal and the pacing advances rapidly.
Not quite what I expected, but an interesting read for those who like a book with in-depth character study.
I missed Books 1 and 2 - I hope I can read those also. Looking forward to Book 4 Pamela

Though the story line seemed interesting, the story was actually boring. It was long and drawn out. I would have loved to see more history, more facts about the area in this book. Read morePublished on March 4, 2014 by NK Author Services/Ebooks Galore
