Sadly I have another unreview post from up my sleeve. “There was a Crooked Man” by Edward Morris is perhaps the work with most fail starts that I have attempted in order to get into it, because after all 100 pages can be managed in a day and it would be quite the shame to lift my hands from an interesting concept like that. I mean time traveling warrior to wreak havoc upon history after the Armageddon. What’s not to like.
However with 6 attempts to try and get into the fabric, the narrative and the flow, proved unfruitful. To me it seemed that the author here expected me to have pre-knowledge about his story and vision and didn’t take the time to slow down and make proper explanations, but hopped around instead developing his concept.
