Mother Land

The writing was amazingly interesting. That was really all that caught my attention.

The narrative to me had moments where it would have had me hooked and other moments where I would just be bored to the point I was simply flipping pages. It was not created equal or really well used.

But the writing here was some of the best I have ever read. The story came alive without even needing much of the story to boost it.

But it was the story that turned me off the most. It took a long time to head anywhere and that was fine. But for most part I just couldn’t understand why the main character just didn’t cut off contact with him. That will be what I will do as well.

And that for most part I was not interested. This was a terrible situation but it wasn’t in such a way that fascinated and intrigued me. I simply learned about it and hoped to never learn any more. That was roughly all that mattered to me.

I didn’t really care for the characters. No matter how witty the writing was. I never felt a connection with them as much as it was to the story.

Overall, this had some of the best writing that I have had the chance to read. It just wasn’t able to hold up in the story department.
