About the author
Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
But everything changed in those last 45 pages - everything was wrong. It was as if the author was tired of the story he had created and didn't know how to end it so he handed it off to someone else. I would actually feel better if this were the case because I would be more apt to invest my time in another of his works if I thought it would be as enjoyable as those first 348 pages.
So if I shuffle the chapters around in my head and let the novel end earlier, without the deluge of waste material that makes up those last 45 pages, then this was a five star experience. If I accept the novel as it stands, I simply don't know how to rate it.
One last thing which was rather disturbing: the description on the backside of the paperback copy I read was wide off the mark. It's as if the covers were printed before the ending was written and (a) either no one bothered to notice the huge discrepancies, or (b) nobody knew how to incorporate these highlights into the story.
A terrific storyline, with potential for greatness, robbed of it's glory. I feel let down by the publisher, the editors and the author.
