Confuzzled Books

If you are wondering what kinds of books I review and events I host, this little section is the place to look. Books I love to read: Children's, Young Adult, Paranormal and Fantasy books. Books I like to read: General Fiction, Romances, Religious Fiction, Mysteries and Biographies. So those are the genres of books I will generally review. If you send me a book outside of those areas, I'll consider it, but it may not fit my tastes. Reviews will take about 2 months to post; I try to post them around the time the book is released. On giveaways: Sending me a signed book to give away on the site is a great way to get your book noticed. I do a "mystery book" giveaway about every 2 weeks, where I read the book and twitter about it without revealing its title, then reveal what I've been reading and give it away. The whole event takes a couple weeks, and I feature the giveaway book on my blog for most of that time.

Extra Dull

ExtraLife, Inc. - Kfir Luzzatto
A scientist husband claims to have created the cure to cancer.  He and his wife search for help from another husband and wife who are lawyers.  The scientist has received threats before he is able to patent the cure.

 

The story starts off with the beginnings of a good mystery.  As it moves on it lost me. I would forget which character is which. Which is the good couple?  Is there a bad couple?  I tried reading a second time because it becomes so boring that I really don’t remember what happens the whole middle of the book.

 

I think that a lot the problem is because this book was translated into english and it loses something.  My interest waned because the characters were just not interesting. I wish I could say more nice things about it but I just can’t think of anything at the moment.
