General Fiction

  • Three Score and Ten, What Then?

    by Peggy Smith

    Rating: 2.25

    Plot: The intriguing premise is not helped by confusing plotting, slow pacing, and the lack of an overarching storyline.

    Prose: The prose lacks the needed momentum to keep readers turning the pages. Additionally, the writing lacks sentence variation and suffers from a lot of repetition.

    Originality: Again, while the premise is interesting, any originality is undercut by the confusing plotting and underdeveloped characters.

    Character Development: The characters need further development if readers are to identify with them. The narrator is largely unchanged throughout the book and meets few emotional challenges.
