I was expecting more from this internationally acclaimed writer and title
Reviewed in the United States on August 12, 2018
This is my first experience with novels written by this author. I enjoy reading literature from authors around the world, getting a glimpse into a variety of cultures and perspectives. This story was very original in the idea and content, but the shifting back and forth between the suspense/slight horror aspects of the novel and the romance (very much “G” rated) aspects were not smooth and fluid. It almost felt like the writings were of two different authors or two separate stories written at different times spliced together. This book is labeled 1 of a trilogy, and I’m undecided if I will seek out the second. This author has been recognized internationally for his writing, and this novel is an international bestseller. Maybe I am missing something, or maybe something has been lost in the translation process.
