My Reviews

 
Informative, Insightful, Difficult

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
 
Romantic, Dramatic, Beautiful

Very well-written! Long novel, but a real page-turner. Kept me up way too many nights. Lol

 
Beautiful, Interesting, Inspiring

Kya is an interesting character to follow throughout the story. The book has you asking “Who dunnit” from the first page. Great ending.

 
Confusing, Slow, Beautiful

I feel like the author wrote in a confusing way shifting back and forth in time and using confusing language. May be because he’s a German-born writer living in Australia and ideas are lost on the American brain? Some of the storyline could have been developed more and other parts left out all together (like all the running scenes with the Clay). It’s just a middle-of-the-road book in my opinion. Not great, not awful.

 
Unconvincing, Beautiful, Poorly Written

This could have been a really good story, if written with more depth. Also, it was creepy to me, all the unnecessary sex scenes, as if Smith was writing his own fantasies within the story. Yuck. Cringy. And I rolled my eyes at some of his word choices to describe what he probably thought were going to be highlights of his book; the ??sensual? parts read like a cheesy romance novel. I skipped reading them altogether. Then there was all the unneeded f-bombs and the over use of the phrase ‘for all intents and purposes’. Did he not read his own work? He may have lived on Fripp Island and known Pat Conroy?, but Smith is no writer in Mr Conroy’s league.
