Reviews - What do customers think about The Exiles: Chantel (The Creoles Series #1)?
Fresh would be nice Apr 16, 2007
Like most of what I've read by Gilbert and/or Lynn Morris, the history that can't be learned from a textbook is the almost-redeeming part. I found myself throughout the story thinking something (more) exciting was about to happen, and then, when the predictable occurred, I was disappointed.
Before I read "The Exiles", it had been a long time since I had read this author. Several years ago, I read an entire series by this duo. After the first two books, the writing came off as repetitive, using the same words in each book to describe the main characters.
In my experience, predictable writing such as this is acceptable, for a period. But that acceptability has worn out it's welcome for this reader.
To make this review more productive: I'd like to see the authors use their knowledge of US history in stories, but to work more on fresh characters and more plot twists. Readers LIKE the unpredictable.
exciting at times Jan 24, 2005
The book was much better in the begining. By the end of the story things were not very exciting and it was very predictable. It made things that would be a really big deal seem like nothing. I got board of the book and was just ready for it to end. Personally it drug on to long! Even though there was the bad things, it was not a horrible book. I would say people who like old time almost real life stories would like this.If you like lots of excitement and suspence than you will not like this book. It's the type of book that people either like lots or don't really like at all.
Got Turned off on the Catholic Bashing Sep 6, 2004
The story line was weak, for a Gilbert Morris Book and I was disappointed with his take on the Catholic Church. If one doesn't know all the facts about another faith, one should leave those facts out completely. I got hung up on those parts of the book and they really left me feeling like I wanted to write the author and tell him before he writes another book and refers to Catholicism, he should read "Crossing the Tiber" by Stephen K. Ray. He also was Baptist when he wrote the book and his incites into church history are very valuable to any lay person and I would think especially a writer.
When is the next one coming out? Jan 28, 2004
Great story, lots of surprising twists. The introduction indicates that this is supposed to be a series about 4 girls who were schoolmates, but the other 3 are hardly mentioned in the story, so I assumed this meant that the others would be out soon. I understand the "House of Winslow" series is supposed to be finished after one more book, maybe then we'll see the next in this series.
