First, a VERY kindly write-up that talks about what I’m doing with Ethiopia Reads:
Now, here's the interesting thing about MERCY - it's really a story about a mother (named Georgina Fulci - this book is fun) who will do anything to be reunited with her young adopted daughter (Mercy) and husband (Rob). The plane crash and zombies are the obstacles. So it's a story with lots of heart.
Second, my very first two-start review:
The main reason I struggled with this book was the timeline. The first fifty pages especially needed a more linear layout. (…) I get that at the beginning of most chapters she’s flashing back, but then the tense would switch and leave me confused. I honestly read the first fifty pages multiple times due to timeline confusion, and I never recovered from it to enjoy the rest of the novel.
Why link to a bad review? Well, because I don’t think it’s a bad review. The reader got confused. So far, this is the only review I’ve gotten that says as much. I find it interesting. And hey! They still reviewed it…
