Review of Flight of Shadows by Sigmund Brouwer.

Flight of Shadows: A Novel (A Caitlyn Brown Novel, #2) Flight of Shadows: A Novel by Sigmund Brouwer

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I couldn't finish this book. I stopped at chapter 14, page 60. I am going to stop torturing myself by reading books that don't grab me from the beginning. I know, I've said it before. But I really mean it this time. This is more of a guy book, just like the first one was. The first book grabbed me more than this one did. It was also kind of gross and a bit creepy just like the first book. I normally don't like dark books, so why I thought I'd like the sequel to the first book is beyond me. I remember liking the themes of the first book more than the story itself. It's interesting if you like darker, futuristic novels with Big Brother themes and an underlying message. I just don't care for the characters enough to keep going. I didn't even the characters much after reading the first book. Sorry.

Thanks for the honest review! I've picked up a Brouwer from the library before (I love his wife's songwriting so much!)and... never finished it. I haven't read this one (probably won't either after your review!) but I have to agree agree with you about the "guy book" concept(not to sound sexist, of course.) but, seriously... there is oftentimes (I find) a group of dude authors who really let a reader down relationally in their writing.
