So far free Kindle books are broadening my horizons – in so far as I now really understand that something which is free can still feel overpriced.
Case in point being Dawn Nicole Stevens’ ‘Forgotten’. It is basically werewolves with added twaddle.
A woman, let’s call her Jane Doe, wakes up in a US hospital with no memory, is convinced to follow a strange man to Germany – GERMANY. Good grief, even with no memory how on earth does that seem a good idea?
Then Jane decides to dwell on how fab it would be to have a mate – full on life partner territory, she has no memory and knows that she doesn’t have an existing mate … because she hasn’t been bitten… oh my goodness.
Perhaps this drivel is readable if you like nonsensical lazy gender stereotypes, for example:
“She had a pretty face, but she wasn’t really curved like a woman.”
Perhaps it is tolerable if you like your female lead to be weak, spineless and stupid:
“She wasn’t a woman worthy of a man like Dirk. She had so many dark secrets hidden away in her consciousness. She wasn’t the sweet, naïve women he’d rescued from the hospital.”
Urk, I don’t understand the appeal of this sort of story – even if I try. The entire story is written as though the author’s first language isn’t English – things are often phrased in a clunky manner and the incorrect word used (Manor instead of Manner).
Delete is a wonderful function!
