So I’m not going to be very positive about this book and quite straight to the point because I’d rather just move on to a better book as soon as possible.
The reason I picked up this book was because I was out and about all day but had forgotten my book at home. This was available as a free e-Book and after reading about half of the book, I could see why.
The plot was actually quite interesting and was really what drew me to wanting to read the story, but it was one big disappointment. First off, one of the worst things to come across in a novel are spelling and grammar mistakes, and in this book they were everywhere. This on its own really put me off the book. But besides that, it was also quite boring. A large chunk of what I read was all filler and I had the idea I could skip a few pages and wouldn’t have missed anything.
All in all, I gave this book 1 out of 5 stars because it just really let me down.
