  "The Sea Garden lacks water" by nbaker (see profile) 09/15/14

The Sea Garden lacked way too many waves for me. I had a difficult time getting into this book as there were over 20 names mentioned in less than 30 pages. I finally had to draw out family trees to keep everyone straight. I have read many many books that go from present to past but this book seemed to do it without cause, pause or reason. I had trouble keeping track of what time tense I was in. The author also repeated scenes from the past so many times that I questioned if I had forgot my place and was reading a chapter over again. There was some potential to the story plot, but too many things that were so coincidental that it lost the feel of reality. I rarely have difficulty finding something positive to say about a story, but this one has me stumped. The book cover was nice. I wish I could submit a better review, but I felt I was being nice with two stars.

I received this book free of charge by Goodreads for an honest review.
