Anne's IntermittentroPolis

I prefer to keep my reviews short but I can't guarantee them to be sweet. I don't mind discussing, analyzing, or raving but I'm just an inherently lazy writer/reviewer.

Wildwing - Emily Whitman Okay, I give the author props for writing abour such a difficult subject: time travel. Not all can handle such themes correctly and this one definitely didn't work out so good. The idea was interesting enough but I ended up skimming the last 200 pgs. The ending was rushed, I didn't like any of the characters and the writing was mediocre at best. I felt that many of the problems was due to plotholes and historical inaccuracy. Everything seems so unlikely even back then and I can tell the author's done her research; just not enough. There was so much potential to this book and it just fell flat.
