Today I deviate from the standard meme. What am I currently reading - easy, yesterdays Tuesday Teaser.
Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro.From the Booker Prize-winning author of The Remains of the Day comes a devastating new novel of innocence, knowledge, and loss.
What did I finish reading? - DRECK. Terrible dreckishy dreck. A book (actually more than one piece of dreck, but the last one I read was dreckishy dreck) I offered to review.What did I finish reading? - DRECK. Terrible dreckishy dreck.
A book that has a poor plot, clichéd villains, POV flip flops. No descriptions or descriptions that contradict.
The male dialogue usually ends with , 'he sneered. The police refer to the victim as The 'Vic. Someone has watched too many bad TV shows about cops. I feel like the 'vic after reading.
The young female police officer is always in trouble, has a temper and her boss doesn't like her. So he assigns a 20 year veteran cop to keep her out of trouble while they investigate a vampire like killer.
No one believes in vampires. But it just happens that her partner is the vampire kingpin. That's right - Kingpin.
She kills him (the kingpin) and is covered with blood that spits. Sorry, that is what is written, spitting blood.
Immediately there is a knock at the door. It is her boss, the Lieutenant.
" "I see we have a problem" he sneered. (See - sneering).
"How did you know?"
"A neighbor called about the commotion. Don't worry about a thing. I'll get this taken care of this for you." "
Oh the humanity!
I push myself out of a sense of duty to read on. It doesn't get better.
I don't want to write an unkind review. I don't want to hurt feelings.
And I will not say something that isn't true or I don't believe.
So what is the answer?
Do I let the author know I have to give a bad review?
Or do I just not review the book? I am leaning the don't review way out.
I am leaning the don’t review way out.
Input and advice would be appreciated.
Now, I that I am all worked up about the level of dreck my brain has endured, I need to relax.
