About the Book: A nuclear fallout brings refugees into a small town, and the characters calmly give them food and shelter, apparently.
MY REVIEW: 2 stars. I was very excited to receive this book because it seemed to be exactly my kind of story! I was pleased upon receiving it and looking at the cover. Unlike other books I have received recently, it seemed to be published by a company and to look professional. So, great job on the cover. Upon reading it, I did see some editing errors, which irked me, but I know how easily that can slip through even when the book goes through several editing phases. The reason for the 2 star review (I didn’t hate it, just couldn’t get into it enough to even finish reading it) is because there was way too much telling and not enough showing. It was narration and little dialogue. The plot was a great plot and could’ve been written in an exciting, gripping way, but instead was dry and boring. Like I said, telling instead of showing. It almost read like a nonfiction book. If you want to know about nuclear fallout, then great. But if you want an exciting story, which I did, then not so great. It just fell a bit flat and missed the mark to me.
