Review: The Sham
The Sham by Ellen Allen
My rating: 1 of 5 stars
I received a free copy of The Sham in return for an honest review.
The blurb and concept of The Sham sounded really interesting but unfortunately this book just wasn't for me. I found it very confusing, random and disjointed in many places. I found myself having to re-read parts to try and follow what was happening or to understand what was being said, it lacked flow. The dialogue was also off, there were times where things said were just so random and didn't feel tied into the occasion. The character of Emily felt unreal, she acted much younger than the age she was supposed to be, yet used words that most girls of the age she was supposed to be, wouldn't even know.
I hate to give up on a book, especially when I have been provided with a review copy, but the execution of this one just wasn't working for me. I'm not feeling this one at all. DNF at 48%, first DNF of 2015.
