You know, the book cover I’ve had in my side bar for yonks ;p I finally read it now that I have my shiny new kindle *swoon*. Okay so I gave this book 3 stars and here is the review I posted on Amazon. I may have wrote it at a certain time of the month when I’m a little, shall we say… brisk? That said I wouldn’t retract anything. This is what I promised, honest reviews giving my opinion (just gonna stress that word opinion – before someone lynch’s me).
At the end of the world – By Mark MacPherson
Technically speaking this book had all the makings of something I was going to love. Mayan history, a kiwi lead (hey there’s only 4 million of us – we gotta stick together ;p) and an exciting mystery. Unfortunately I found it incredibly lifeless. The author is very descriptive to his own detriment. Too often things in the book were described at least three times over. The main character I had no real feeling for or interest in and reading the story ended up feeling like a trial. I still believe with a decent amount of re-working this book could be good, but it read like the author hasn’t yet discovered his voice and because of that, I as a reader just wasn’t caught by the story.
So finally, a Wednesday review!! And pop by next Wednesday for my very first author interview *oooo* exciting stuff : )
