23082546From the deepest desires often come the deadliest hate. – Socrates

Expectations. I think that is always my problem when I read “name” authors. With their fancy publishers, fancy marketing and ‘names’ I expect their work to be bigger, more well written, deeper. And, honestly, after The Vines I had expected more just because that book was better. It had deeper structure, a better story line

I understand Christopher’s thought processes, and I honor them. This time, however, I feel he is trying too hard, pushing instead of leading if that makes sense. Don’t get me wrong. There are good things about the book, things that are important. But the overall issues meant the book simply didn’t work for me. I look forward to seeing what others find to love about it.

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own. Should you appreciate my reviews please don’t hesitate to click “Yes” for “Was this review helpful to you?” Thanks!
