Interesting premise but much too long on some details and not enough on others.

Sometimes i read books that seem way too short and wish they lasted longer. This book is so long that it becomes tedious to read. There's almost no action - it is mostly dialogue. It was infuriatingly slow and somewhat boring up to a third of the way through. Although the drama does build in intensity, it is totally predictable. No surprises. It becomes more interesting about halfway through. After the plot is completely revealed - which is so tragic that the reader is left feeling badly, the writer then goes into a long, drawn out Christmas scene. It is presumably an effort to end the book on a more positive note. I somewhat enjoyed the book but would not purchase another by the same author. Mostly, my feeling about the book is that I am grateful that I am finished with it.

This is a good start to a chapter, but it's missing the length and the feeling. Add some depth to your character. And as mention before, a plot is needed. Also, do keep in mind some people are still in school and have projects to complete. Be considerate of them. Not everyone can do what they wish all day. Anyway, it's the making of a story, but it needs to exemplify the effort put in it. Something sloppily put together is easily distinguished from something that has loads of time and effort put into it. Also, try to advance you vocabulary and sentence structure. Put in some variety. Just by doing this, though, shows you have the makings of a writer! Best of luck!<br><br>My Rating p So Far:<br>&starf &starf &star &star &star<br><br><br><br>~Light&beta<_>lood/L&beta

Mixed feelings. You have the makings of a great writer, but you need to ask yourself:<p>What's the storyline?<p>Do that, and make the chapters longer, and you should have a terrific story! Keep it up!

This book has a few minor editing problems, but at 400 pages of story, I can only hope I would do half as well. This is set in England and even though I have read a lot of over the pond books, some of the phrases and terminology were new to me. Men's slacks are trousers( which I knew) but underwear are called simply pants. The book has a big cast of characters. I think the author took the easy way out with Daphne and Brain and I would have liked to have known the town's reaction, when one of the characters was proven innocent and happened with the law wrongly putting someone in prison. I have two complaints about this very entertaining book. The first is all the thoughts and dialouge. It seems like there is too much talk and too little action. The second one is the Christmas gathering. This was way over the top and seemed to on forever. It takes up almost a fourth of the book and really does not add much to the book. I would havr prefered to know more about Lucy and Joe's division of property anf if the ring gang everexisted, was caught and prosecuted. There is some very mild violence, a death by burning ( which I hate). Implied sex, no murders and some humor. I had never heard of a gap year and I can not imagine a 15 year old going to a party at 10 PM, and staying out until 2 AM, with permission, plus going into pubs and all over England by herself. I guess the drinking age is different over there also. I highly recommend this book. The genre is mainly fiction with a dab of mystery thrown in. At times I found it boring, so I am recommending it for ages 18 and up, because I think anyone younger would give up on it. It is not romance, but I consider it a woman"s book. Cost $2.99. Free standing. ? AD
