Hemingway Point by Nora Carroll

Hemingway Point

This is a well written novel, with believable characters and a plot which interweaves the dark hidden history of a family, with a really good twist to the end.  I did sort of guess it though.

It was a book I would have liked to have enjoyed more, but once again, sloppy presentation ruined it for me. The dialogue punctuation is at first hit and miss and the disappears all together. It had me reaching to the end page as I wanted to find out the conclusion but couldn’t be bothered to try and sort the conversation out in my head.  Reading the end spoiled it for me as I still didn’t see how they got there, so went back and tried again but ended up speed reading to get the plot.

 Such a shame.  Come on writers, you bother to write the book, now bother to check thoroughly your printed version. I know the corrections will drive you nuts, but what if a publisher gives up just due to your presentation?
