The Return of the Boomerang



From sentence one, I had a difficult time reading this book. It was written as if someone overused a Thesaurus and changed words without really knowing what they meant. I would almost categorize the writing as juvenile at best. The author should be studying the English language a bit further so the book flows better.

Instead of reading the book and enjoying the story line, I found myself trying to decipher what the author is trying to portray with every sentence.

By using multiple names for one person, I was getting confused on which character was talking, and constantly getting characters mixed up.

Scenes were changed without letting the reader know, so the characters jump from one location to another without knowing how or when this even happened. This was extremely frustrating.

Enough bashing on the writing style and the issues I had with the book, let's discuss the positives of the book and why I continued to read it in the first place.

Annabel goes on an amazing journey to finding herself. This involves the reader on a emotional and spiritual level. Since she's lost her wealth, she has to learn quite a bit about herself, life and how to cope with everyday issues. Changes are made, and eventually she comes to be her own person, which was enjoyable to read about.

Overall I would rate this book a 3/5.
