Fluff

I'm sorry I booked this. This novel wasn't what I was expecting. Though it's quite well written, the previous reviews led me to believe it would be a fantastic read, but I was sorely disappointed. It's a story about love that's in love with itself. Pretentious. Nothing to see here, folks.

Shakespeare it's not...

Though this story was technically pretty well written, I found the style to read much more like a script for a stageplay than a story. It didn't work for me at all. The 'Hamletesque' theme was apparent, but the characters had little depth, and the plot was quite hard to follow. The ogres were a bit confusing, at one point becoming trolls instead.

As it's only a prologue, I'll give the benefit of the doubt and say this story could improve over time.

The author has good technical skills, though there are quite a few typo's, but needs some work on emotive characterisation and story flow.

Thanks for posting. I'll keep an eye on it to see how it goes.
