Book Review: Wildefire

It is rare that I will say that I hated a book.  Wildefire is one of those exceptions.

Things I disliked:
1. The prose: Seriously, do we need that many comparisons? The sentences were weighed down with imagery. Yuck!
2. Characters: I REALLY wanted to like them…but I just couldn’t do it.  Card board cut outs that simply lacked depth.
3. Plot: Honestly, I didn’t stick around long enough to find out if there was ever going to be a point to this book.
4. Predictable: Oh yeah, this one was a real winner. Blah!

I could not finish this book. It sat in my car for two weeks before I finally turned it back into the library. I’m annoyed that i had to pay a late fee!

I stopped halfway through the book but decided before I threw it into the drop box to read the final page. Flipped to the back…yep, predictable. If that was a cliff hanger for the sequel it didn’t work for me.

Honestly, I’m thinking a 2 star rating is being generous. I will not be recommending this book to anyone. Sorry!
