The most insipid, anticlimactic, pandering, insincere crap I’ve read since the book about the autistic boy who gets cured by the power of music.
The writing style is ridiculous. It’s simply lists of actions and dialog. There is no heart or nuance.
“This happened. It was funny. I got sad then.”
Anyone could have written this book. There was no voice.
The perspective switches were pointless and poorly done. Nothing was added to the story. Just more spoon feeding this garbage into our eyes. Most was just rehashing events and conversations we had already read; they did nothing to progress the plot.
The family is so cookie cutter perfect. There were no relatable flaws in any of the characters. No long lasting conflicts to give depth.
The story had the potential to be really beautiful. Wish an author with a hint of style, talent and voice had written it.
I couldn’t wait for it to be over.
