Top critical review
Couldn't get into it.
19 March 2018
I truly wanted to love this book, but it just didn't hold my attention. To be completely transparent I just couldn't find the energy to bother finishing it so keep that in mind when reading the review. For me, the prose itself was like slogging through mud. I felt, even from the very beginning I was being beaten over the head with a great big stick. Good characters, totally good. Bad characters, totally bad. I don't know if it improved, but I couldn't hold my attention when reading it. Also, I had no idea whose story it was. The first four chapters introduced four separate characters, and of them, it was apparent the Nun, and The Devil was evil incarnate.
That there is a home for this story, I have no doubt, but I'm not the reader it was looking for. Maybe one day I'll pick it up and try again, but not now.
