I started a read for review book that sounded awesome. I am only 5% into the book and already we have jumped story line a dozen times (I counted). In each jump we get a little more story, but some seem completely random and do nothing but shove me out of the story. I already have two pages of book notes because that is the only way to keep it straight.
The main character will be talking about a phone call, and mid thought we are sitting in his office talking to a conspiracy theorist. You stay there for maybe two paragraphs, then we get to know about the wife WHO SO FAR REMAINS UN-NAMED.
I am not going to throw the book under the bus by listing the name yet because maybe this will make sense later…. I am just frustrated with it right now. Seriously this story line is jumpier than a room full of meth addicts and I just want to know one thing:
I know that some authors go back and forth with timelines- there are times where it makes the story better. The Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley did that for me (I just realized I have yet to review that here. It’s coming!). But there are times where it is a) pointless, or b) not implemented well. What do you guys think?
