Hanging participles, past and present...
Would you try another book written by Alanna Knight or narrated by Joe Dunlop?
No. The reader is ponderous and not very intelligent. The author has a startling ungrammatical mannerism (see review headline), which is a constant irritation. Don't literary editors pick up on such things any more?
How did the narrator detract from the book?
He reads too slowly and sounds under-prepared. Several mispronunciations.
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Yes. It was set in Brighton, which is why I wanted to read it. I love the place.
Any additional comments?
People who don't mind clumsy prose would certainly find the plot sufficiently gripping.
