It’s interesting to read how different bloggers view this book. I’m still slowly reading and making my way through in my spare time. My expectations are sufficiently built up that I hope the author will deliver and that I won’t be disappointed.
At this point, if I had to comment on any problems I see in the writing, I would say the large chunks-four or more lines– of italics when the character is giving us his direct thoughts, snags me. I’m pulled from the story setting and the character’s head. I think it was Andy M. at Zondervan who mentioned that italics should be done away with. I didn’t agree with him before, but I agree now. I see no reason, in this novel anyway, for the italics. Nevertheless, when I enjoy the story enough I’m tolerant of writing particulars as long as there aren’t gaping problems.
