With my teacher’s hat on I have constructed a positive review for the book I have just finished. I still haven’t the heart to point out what I first considered to be flaws but, on reflection, think they just might be quirks that add something to the writing. The odd bits of present tense make the action more immediate and the change of viewpoint gives the reader an insight into the mind of the child. It made me uncomfortable but suited the story.
At least he is writing, whereas I have come to a complete halt. I don’t feel too well at present and still need to get back into a routine after Christmas.Once I’ve checked emails and posted a book for a reader who lives abroad I’ll put a Christmas picture on. I am trying very hard to think visually.
