Reviews - What do customers think about Cassidy (Big Sky Dreams, Book 1)?
Audio Version Nov 8, 2008
I listened to the audio version of this book. Not only was the actual story very disappointing (I agree with most of the reviews here about the lack of plot, stilted dialog and being extremely preachy), but the reader did a terrible job! In audio books, the reader can make or break a story - and I could definitely tell that the lady doing the reading was not enjoying the book herself! She read it as fast as she could! She ran sentences together, didn't pause for breaks between scenes, didn't announce a change of chapters frequently - it made the story even more strange and difficult to follow. I listened to the whole thing (7 hours), and it was all disappointing.
Okay, but lacked plot Sep 10, 2008
I enjoy (and even own) nearly all of Lori Wick's books. Unfortunately, I was disappointed with this one. The book seemed to lack a plot, and even when we did figure out the plot near the end of the book, it was rather uninteresting and dull.
I really enjoyed the next book in the series, Sabrina. I'd say that Sabrina is one of my favorite of Lori's books.
Cassidy Aug 12, 2008
I have really enjoyed many of the books written by Lori Wick, but this one was written in a very choppy way that did not flow. I enjoy books that share perspectives from the different characters, however in this book it jumped from character to character within each chapter and the depth of each character was not developed as well as the author usually does. I was looking forward to the fact that there were three books in this series but I probably will not order the next one.
Not the best Wick, but still enjoyable Jul 28, 2008
The overall story of Cassidy was very romantic and contained some good action and suspense and I liked it. I did not like it as much as some other Lori Wick books I have read however. There was an awkwardness in the writing that I did not understand, every so often it would say "that lady" instead of "she" and it always made me stop and pause losing where I was because it stood out so much. I do look forward to reading Sabrina soon.
Oh so boring... Jul 22, 2008
I came to love Lori Wick about ten years ago when I first read "The Princess". I read and enjoyed many of her books after that, but lately, I've been continually disappointed. They're all the same! Predictable, boring, goody-goody, and unintelligent. I seriously feel as though I'm dumbing myself down to read them. The characters are so unrealistic...sugary sweet and unbelievably wholesome. Real Christians aren't like that 100% of the time. I prefer a more relatable character (like in "Pretense" for example). I feel like I'm experiencing deja-vu with every Lori Wick novel now. Is there no Christian "romance" writer who can tell an intelligent, thought-provoking, relatable story with complex characters and a moving plot? It doesn't have to be perfect, Lori, but it's time to explore a new formula. PLEASE!
