Reviews - What do customers think about Rainbow' End?
formatting and grammar...where is it? Dec 31, 2007
I have to admit that I have real problems with books that lack editing. This is a case in point. This book is difficult to read because of all the grammatical and spelling errors. Misplaced modifiers abound, too. Perhaps these errors have been corrected in subsequent printing, but at least, the one that I read had multiple errors on nearly every page. By the way, what is with spaces between paragraphs?
Living on the North Coast as I do, I understand that people living in Ohio might find the story intriguing because of the subject matter; however, I found it difficult to enjoy the story because of the stilted conversations and implausible situations.
surprising.... Oct 5, 2006
I read the hype and heard the author's own words praising this book. I found it to be a light read at best. The plot was okay, and it had a few engaging moments, but the execution was too simplistic and amateur. Could have been a summer paperback - or in my case, thank goodness it was a library book. Nothing new here.
I feel duped Oct 20, 2004
I found this book while I was looking for a book of the same title about the stock market crash of 1929. Based on the glowing reviews posted and the summary of the plot, I decided to go ahead an buy it. I took it on a long airplane flight, greatly looking forward to this "book you couldn't put down". I can only say I'm glad I brought a backup book! Now I notice that almost all the previous reviews are from Ohio and likely friends and family of the author. If my brother or good friend had written this, I'd be polite and say nice things too. But it's definitely not ready for prime time. Amateurish writing, not a strong story, questionble accuracy of history, etc.
Great Summertime Reading Jul 16, 2004
I picked up this book just as I was taking a mini-vacation at Catawba Island on Lake Erie, across the way from Put-In-Bay. What an appropriate book for the trip. It was fun experiencing the sunsets & good times along with the characters. I can't wait to get Pierce The Veil, the second book in the Emerson Moore series. Hope there are many more to come!!
Rainbow's End Jan 30, 2004
I highly recommend the book Rainbow's End by author Bob Adamov. From Civil War intrigue to Lake Erie island suspense, it is action/adventure packed with a touch of romance. Great reading from start to finish.
