Book Review: DNF’d

Valentine

Hello friends,

Valentine by Elizabeth Wetmore was a novel that I picked this up, and read three chapters, before I DNF’d it. The writing was good. Really, really excellent. But the story itself was not meant for me, as I was most definitely not the right target audience at this point and time.

Violent, gritty, the writing was easily some of my favorite; however I disliked the topic of the story, and the way it set up, in terms of justice, retribution, and the way things evolved. Three chapters probably isn’t fair, but I was hoping for something far more centered around survival out in the wilderness, than vengeance and graphic violence. Maybe I’ll pick it up again in another setting, but for now, it was just a bit too dark hearted for the mood that I was craving in terms of a good survival story.

A solid 3 stars.

Until later,
