"Flight of the Stone" by Chris Thompson
I am not surprised about this book at all. I had a feeling that I wouldn't like it, and I didn't.
Truthfully, I'm sorry about my opinion, but it's just what it is, and I can't change it.
Here's why I give it only 1 star:
-none of the characters had any depth. At all. Important or not they felt so distant, so hollow and so unimportant, that I was wondering why I was made to read a book (332 pages besides!!!) full of nothing important.
-the story evoked absolutely no feeling in me. None at all. Well, unless I count the annoyance and ridicule I felt throughout the whole novel...
-there was nothing interesting about the events that were supposed to happen. There was no action. Just many separate characters wondering how they'd gotten from one place to another.
-there was so much idle talk, I was furious because I had to waste all that time on reading this (crappy) book.
I would like to sincerely apologize to the author, who obviously spent lots of hours sweating over this work of fiction. It just didn't do it for me.
My rating is
