Book Report: The Invisible Hand
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Interesting story, poorly written.
I loved the premise of the story and I found the characters quite interesting and engaging. The book could have used a round or two of editing and rewriting though.
Poorly written, with intensely emotional scenes frequently portrait through “tell, don’t show”, just telling the author what the characters were feeling, instead of showing the effects.
Full of spelling and grammatical errors and unnecessary plot elements. With a good round of editing and rewriting this could have been a tight, concise economic thriller. Instead it’s a long-winded tragedy with some exciting bits.
It’s almost as if disappointing endings were in fashion today. This story peters out gradually until the writer found nothing more to say.
