Skirting the Edge of Disaster (no spoilers)
I bought this book as a bargain and thought I'd give it a try. 4 bucks verses 14 wins. It certainly wasn't a waste of $4, but it is a waste of $14. I found it somewhat difficult to get over the London slang/vocabulary, but I should have known that since it says London (Engalnd)-Fiction right on the page. Other than that, it wasn't a half bad book. Also, I must note that Stockley makes references to works of art, and you don't specifically need to know these works to understand the novel, but it certainly helps in specific areas. Otherwise you can just skip over it and keep to the story. All in all a good read, but it was close to being more a disasterous rather than a pleasureable read.Was this review helpful?
