Review : I really – really wanted to like this book. You can check my normal ratings and will see that I am a generous Person with my stars.
But with this book I am having serious issues…
when sitting in a train at a full speed and looking outside – what do you see ? – a blurr – everything is moving so fast you can not get a hold of anything – nothing is clear…
And this book made me feel like trying to read a story that hat the speed of an high speeding train… or maybe even a racecar …
The storyline was good – don’t misunderstand me – but the characters keept moving so fast that there was absolutly no time to give them deepth …. they were shallow…
I had the constant feeling like beeing pushed through the book – the story jumped – yes – JUMPED forward … like watching a film on fast forward …
which is a very unpleasend feeling when you started a book with the real feeling you would like it because of the storyline.
Normally i do not judge to harsh – as I know how hard it is to blow life into a creation like this story – and I don’t stick to judging typing mistakes or anything – as english is not my native – i would never dare to critizice gramma.
But the speed in this story – togehter with the jumping – is a real dealbreaker that even the good storyline couldn’t catch for me
Sorry – I really wanted to like it
