Some of the worst writing I have ever seen
on January 25, 2012
After the reviews about this book and looking for something written about human trafficking, I downloaded it to my iPad. What a joke. The author has an English name which implies it is her first language. You wouldn't think so after reading this tosh. I don't know what else she writes but I would suggest sticking to Stephen Leather, Andy Mcnab or Tom Cain if you enjoy any kind of action. This book starts off in an exciting place but soon the writing style has me wishing I had never bought the thing. Descriptions of situations are long winded and flowery. Words used were not emotive and I didn't feel particularly tense when reading any of it. I didn't feel like turning the page anymore after the first few. I just deleted the book. The one determining factor about deleting this book was when I saw the word "egress" for the second time in the book. Who uses that word? Escape would have been fine. Does she use a synonym dictionary to find more interesting words or does she use google translate from her native tongue into english? I skipped whole sections of the book looking for action. Nothing moved me. Total waste of time. I'm disappointed that people would give this 5 stars and mislead others into buying it.
