I have been reading this book, and have found it to be rather good. It draws you in from the first page and I kept reading and before I knew it I was three chapters in. I found it to be rather gripping and I wanted to know what was going to happen nextRead the story now
From the beginning I was sucked into the world the author created. The description and the world painting the author did was quite good and very enjoyable. Plus the perspective is most interesting. I don't think I have ever read a fantasy story from the POV of the villain. It is good all around.Read the story now
So I like this book. I would recommend that when one reads it they makes sure they can focus as there are several lines to follow, but it is well done and I am enjoying it.Read the story now
I have enjoyed this book quite a bit. I enjoy fantasy, but I am rather picky with it. There is a lot of trash out there when it comes to fantasy. However, I think this is quite a good fantasy book. I liked the characters particulary Jacob and the monk. A book I would recommend to people.
The only problem I saw was each chapter seemed to have one typo, or short phrase repeating itself. A minor problem at worst, it just seemed to happen once per chapter
Not my cup of tea
So, romance books of any sort aren't really my thing. I don't read them, and I have never been a big fan of them. So, that means I am definitely not the person the author had in mind at all when writing this book. So remember that with this review. To me it seems like the same old for romances, even if one of the characters was dead. I just couldn't get in to it. Personally I don't care if something has been done a million times before, its just nothing in this story could get me interested.
That said apart from a few minor errors the authors ability seemed good. You (meaning the author) can write. Just the story did not interest me.
So the good first: I like the idea, it seems like a good idea and an interesting story. Yes the basic plot has been done many times, this is a different take on it and also the idea and story is a good one.
What need works: the grammar, punctuation and other technical skills. In my opinion you should get someone to take a look at the grammar and spelling. I only read the first two chapters and there were a lot of misspelled words and other mistakes. On the review me board try asking if someone can do an in-depth review and work on it for you.
It is an interesting story and I think would be quite good and fun to read, it's just there are a lot of errors in the grammar and spelling that need to get ironed out.
A Good Start
Interesting book. Not sure I have ever read anything quite like it before. There are some errors in grammar and so on, but it's not done yet so that makes sense. I found the story interesting and new, and it kept me hooked to see what would happen yet. The biggest problem I found was it was hard to keep track of what was happening and the switching between the dream world and the not dream world, along with why things were happening the way they were. Seemed to be some gaps in the plot. I would recommend working on the transitions so they flowed better, and filling in the gaps.
Like I said it is an original plot that I haven't read before and I like the story so I look forward to reading more,
A great start
I like the plot and the characters. I think it is a great start. However, I do think it needs some work. The dialog and the switches between paragraphs seem stilted and forced which take away from the flow of reading. I like the plot and I like the idea; and I think it was very good, and overall i like the story. I just think the flow of the story and the dialog needs a bit of work to make it flow better and not seem so stilted and forced. I would be happy to review and help if you want, even if it's just reading again. It was a good story and I am enjoying the storyRead the story now
I like it
I like this book a lot. Before I knew it I was on level 8 and still reading. It gripped me from the very beginning and I just wanted to keep reading. The characters are captivating and the plot is different and good. Plus the author does a good job with the descriptions and the pace of the novel.Read the story now
So, I figured this was going to be just another zombie story; after all one can find a million for a buck nowadays. And in some ways it was. Headshots, people barely surviving and so on and so forth. That said it drew me in. The biggest thing I look for is the story itself and I like this one. I found the characters to be believable and the story kept me interested. For a market that has a ton of stories in it this one stood out to me. I think part of the reason why is there was more focus on a story being told than on how many zombies kills can I wrack up with a miracle weapon that never runs out of ammo. So I liked it, and I would recommend itRead the story now
Good and Bad
When I think mystery I think and mostly read Sherlock Holmes, Poirot, and Miss Marple or I watch Midsomer Murders and Lewis. This book is not those. However, that being said, I did think it was a good book. The descriptions and characters drew me in so I wanted to keep reading and find out what was going on. The story line is good, and the characters seem to be well thought out and fleshed out. The only thing I would say needs work is consistency in POV, and the changes. Sometimes the changes were rather abrupt and could get confusing and with the POV changes it was also confusing as I wasn't always sure who's pov I was following. Otherwise it's a good mystery thriller bookRead the story now
Interesting and new
I love reading sci-fi, fantasy, and dystopian novels. However, I must admit I have never read one quite like this where dreaming is banned and the majority of people seem to dislike the government. I think it was a new and interesting spin on a currently common theme. Most dystopian novels follow a rather particular format, and so far this one does not seem to be following that format. Which is rather nice and makes for a refreshing spin, that I find enjoyable.
I find the style of writing very simple and easy to follow. That is a good thing as it makes for an easy and pleasant read, which means I can just read and enjoy without having to work hard at following it.
Overall I found it a fun and pleasant read with a interesting spin on the dystopian theme.
