Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books And A Beat.
Being sick is good for one thing: I spent a nice chunk of time reading! This one, though, is… not really pulling me in. Repetition is annoying in any book, but it’s especially aggravating when a paragraph repeats what was written in the one. I’m finding the dialogue too often juvenile, and if I have to read another detailed description about clothing I may cry. There’s also a certain looseness with commas that can make things confusing. Commas are so troublesome!
“Friedr answered the door, wearing a red shirt with red and yellow flowers neatly embroidered around the cuffs and collar and the same sort of dark-blue loose linen trousers that both Edwin and Christoph wore.”
