Lackluster Storytelling

  • Sep 9, 2010
Rating:
+3

Because of the large sales numbers for THE OVERTON WINDOW, I started the novel with high expectations for a rip-roaring page-turner. I was disappointed.  The opening was a grabber and started me reading but then things bogged down. It’s got too much telling and not enough fine writing and characterization. I did plod through the entire book—but plod is the operative word.
 
I assumed when I started the book that it would have an agenda—and that agenda is evident in the plot. Glen Beck should have had better editing and collaboration for this book to really fly and be something I could fully recommend. I’d pass on this “thriller.” It is not worth the reading time. Some people may wonder why I ranked it a +3. I did read every page and complete the book. I rank them lower if I don't complete the book--which sometimes happens.
