Unnecessarily Descriptive, Not Much Story
The story was far too descriptive. It was like having descriptive audio on a movie, but to the unnecessary and extreme. It distracted me from what was actually going on. Making that worse was the metaphors coming every second sentence. I had no idea what was going on until the last chapter where some semblance of a proper story emerged.
So much time was spent describing useless stuff that the characters were lost to me. I did not care for the characters or what happened to them, since they were never the focus. Random words and similes were thrown in all over the place seeming to try and build word count.
Narration was acceptable at best; sounded like a female William Shatner. Did well for secondary characters, but they were few and far between on dialogue.
This may have been a story of overcoming abuse, but I couldn't find it in there. What I got was a boring, unnecessary mess of descriptive speaking and metaphors which hid the story from view. Largely disappointed, not worth reading even if it was free.
