Review: The Glass Ocean

The Glass Ocean
The Glass Ocean by Lori Baker

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Last year, I received a copy of The Glass Ocean from Penguin Canada in exchange for an honest review. I am a bit late to write it since the book was published on August 1st 2013.

This was a very hard read... slow and painfully repetitive.

The entire story can be contained in about 20 pages, but was stretched to breaking point by constant repetitions. The repetitive writing style dragged the story and besought me to quit reading that book over and over. I persisted because of my stubbornness and finally saw the end of it; however I don't have much to say about it.

All the characters had major flaws and none stood out as likable. Some scenes in the book were interesting (i.e. the green cloud storm, the mechanical woman looking like Clotilde), but were so few and far between.

I hate giving such a low rating to any books, but this book did not have the substance for giving it more than one star.
