I just finished this book the other day. FINALLY. I have started this book a couple times before and couldn’t get into it. This time I thought I should just commit and read it. Holy cow. It took me forever to get through this book. It wasn’t very good so it wasn’t very motivating to read. Plus, when I did get reading a few chapters at a time, I was so distracted or upset that the story kept going on random tangents that I didn’t think were necessary for the story line. 30+ chapters in, new main characters were being added. I was not impressed.
So I decided to stick it out, because Chuck used to coach hockey with the author. He has written a few other books (which I have read), but I was least impressed by this one. I had high hopes, though because I thought it was going to be a good “who-done-it” book. It just wasn’t all that interesting. I feel bad saying the book wasn’t good because I knew the author.
The writing itself wasn’t all that bad. It was mostly the new characters and adding in seemingly unnecessary information throughout the book. There just wasn’t enough to hold my interest.
Therefore, I am not going to recommend this book to you. It just wouldn’t be the nice thing to do to you!
One of my resolutions for the year is to read more. I have been quite diligent about reading every night before I go to sleep. I have been given some books from some friends that I want to read. I also want to read more while I walk on the treadmill. I used to read to and from work on the bus and I enjoyed that time. Now I need to make myself find other ways to fit in reading.
Have you read anything lately that I should be adding to my list?
