I republished this book because of some of the things the reviewer wrote for four of my books. The review by this character is not valid of this book.
  JLmanning | Jul 22, 2010 |
This will be brief, because I couldn't finish the book. The prose is so horrible it's not even worth reading past the first paragraph. I stopped at page two and skimmed around to see if it got any better, but it didn't. The author cannot decide on what tense he wants to write in, the dialogue is stilted, the grammar is horrible, and there are typos. Utterly atrocious. There's a reason why this was self-published by AuthorHouse, a company that makes you pay to print your work. Add to the fact that the author leaves 5-star reviews on his own work here on Amazon and you really do hit a low with this stuff.

(This is basically the same review I'm putting up for three of his books that I tried to read, because it's true of each). ( )
