Top critical review
Overly long and over-rated, but judge for yourself!
1 January 2019
I made the mistake of reading the critic reviews, I’ve been burned the same way with a few movies, and forgot that critics value novelty over a good story ( if you want to see a movie that shafts everything including movie critics watch “Birdman”) I won’t spoil the book for other readers by plunging into the plot, suffice to say after a very promising beginning and okay middle I found the ending contrived and artificial. Maybe spinning things out to 500+ pages is the new fashion. The writing and language are otherwise good but it didn’t have the hallmark of a good story for me, I had no desire to pick it up and re-read it.
