If there weren't so many proofreading/editing mistakes in Flesh and Fury, I would easily give it four stars as a good piece of Bigfoot fantasy. What I liked about the story were the characters, including the spiritually aware Bigfoot leader, the subtle references to the encroachment of civilization into wildlife habitats, family dynamics and political references to weak-kneed local and federal government agencies and those who staff them. The heroine of the story is a strong, unpolished woman who spent the summer at a Forest Service Fire Watch Tower, who speaks her mind and is as good with a chain saw as she is manning a fire watch station.
I hope the author will have her next book professional edited and proofread prior to publication for her own sake. It is a shame to read such a terrific, out-of-the-box story idea, which is riddled with so many editing and writing flaws that reduce its value to readers.
To sum up: I liked the story a lot (4 stars), but I agree with others who remarked about the terrible editing (0 stars). Four divided by two equals two, which is the rating I give this version.
This could be a terrific, much improved Kindle or print book simply by having it professionally edited and proofread and then republished as the second edition. I hope that is what this author will do, and then I would look forward to reading more of the author's future work.
The story line is such that it would be a fantastic book. The plot is wonderful, the character's are sort of memorable, and the dialog between the characters is believable. The only thing is that the author should have done a whole lot more research of her own before writing it.
Leviathan's are water based monsters! Call them Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Almas, Booger, Skookum, Skunk Ape, Yeren, Yowie, Grassman, Gigantopithecus the list goes on and on.....anything but Leviathan's!! Anyone who's ever read books knows that Leviathan's are Sea Monsters so every single time I read that word I had to cringe inside and shake my head before reading further. And their children are not Cubs!! Lion's have cubs, not Leviathon's or Sasquatch. Just left me shaking my head too many times.
Of course having said that, I did finish the book and still have an interest in her other works. I just really wish that she would go back in and change what she calls them to make the book a bit more professional.
I read a lot of ebooks and very few are edited properly. This one, however, doesn't appear to have had any editing at all. I don't know what software was used to write the story, but any properly set up MS Word version would have been bleeding with red errors in syntax, grammar, punctuation usage, etc.
I guess you should give it a try if you can suffer through the writing long enough to get through the story. I couldn't.
This 'author' was so excited to finally write this book, couldn't she have read it over first? Or hire a second grader to correct the obvious mistakes? It was so bad that I couldn't really get into the story which struck me as rather juvenile. Maybe I should become an eBook editor. I'm not an author and English is my third language but I'm sure I could make these books a lot more readable!
