This book was entertaining, but it had way too many flaws for me to recommend it to anyone.
First of all, it had maybe four storylines, and the first third of the book shoved so many characters down my throat it was ridiculous. Most of them just ended up disappearing or turning up 500 pages later, after I had already forgotten them.
One storyline was the main one for the book, and the rest, looking back, didn’t seem to matter at all. Honestly, it seemed to me that the minor storylines were just there to give a Sci-Fi feeling to a book which would otherwise have been pure fantasy.
But my biggest annoyance with the author and this book is the fact that he doesn’t know how to make complete sentences. I’d estimate that there were about 2-3 gramatically incorrect sentences, per page, through the entire book. This isn’t a small book. There are also numerous spelling mistakes, and many examples of incorrect comma usage. I don’t often get annoyed with these things unless they interfere with my enjoyment of a book. If I had the time and inclination, I would read through the book again and make notes of every mistake, then send the list to his editor.
As it is, I think I’ll just avoid this author for a bit. I might get high blood pressure.
