Invasive Species, Karle Johnson

A 1*

Caution, mild spoilers ahead.

I got a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. The opinions included in this review are my own and are in no way affected by the exchange.

I didn’t finish this book.

I abandoned it at 20% and half of it I needed to skim through.

There is just too much DESCRIPTION!

It is tedious, it is long, it is annoying.

On the first 5 pages of the book, you will meet a guard who will then proceed to explain all the family tree of his boss, the owner of the ranch where the guard is working. And let me tell you, this was the first warning bell.

There is action, don’t take me wrong. But it doesn’t feel like it… Because the guard sees the monster, wolf, thing, whatever and it takes him another 5 pages to start running for his life.

The bits of conversations that take place at the beginning of this book don’t seem natural, because there are full descriptions of the life of the characters between the spoken lines.

“Show! Don’t tell!” I wanted to scream.

I must say this is a an example of omniscient 3rd person POV gone wrong… Very wrong.
