Another great book May 15, 2008
This is a great book. I was held captive to it so much so that I stayed up all night reading it. What a great twist. It had me guessing up until that last couple of pages. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes Christian mysteries.
The title fits the "so-called" quality of the dialogue. almost. May 24, 2006
If you have ever had the displeasure of picking up a book, wishing to be entertained, only to find yourself gagging and gasping at the amateur level of supposedly professional writing that you begin to ignore the plot, and worry more about the horrific misuse of ink, as well as the pointless waste of so many innocent trees? To be fair, some of the plot actually held promise. Better yet, some of the descriptions came close to being interesting - for all too short a time, unfortunately.
I found myself wishing (very hard) that the authors finally found a professional, talented and patient secret coauthor or editor to instill some reality, life and creativity into the dialogue. As the pages turned, the wish grew stronger. And stronger and stronger still.
(A DISCLAIMER) I reluctantly admit that my wishes were denied. Now, I read fast, and I read a lot, no less than three books a week. It is exceedingly rare for me to pick up a book and NOT finish it. My spousette claims that it is higher, based on the growing piles of finished books adding (my description, not hers) to each room's landscape and decor.
Alas, this was just such a book. About halfway through, I found myself unwilling and unable to risk any more of my sense of taste, sanity and my general feeling of happiness - all of which would have been at serious risk if I dared read another page of this pointless, inane pap. I suppose someone might enjoy it. My heart goes out to them because of their pitifully low standards.
Plainly put, this is a bad, badly written, and simply offensive book. It is not so much that it wears the authors' religion on its sleeve, its cover page, and its - never mind. It is not so much that the plot is both ocassionally promising and totally disappointing all too often. It is not that the dialogue seems to be penned by an autolobotomized coke addict paid by the word, not by any rational thought. It is all of that and more. Well, less, to be accurate.
DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS BOOK, unless like a hairshirt, you get perverse pleasure from self-abusing your sense of taste.
Great Mystery! Sep 13, 2004
Another great "Mac Mystery"! I could not put this book down until I finished it. A great story that kept me guessing "who done it" until the very end. I would highly recommend this book!
