There’s a difference between expressing emotion and using expletives just because you think it sounds good. And if there’s anything worse than a horribly written book, it’s one that’s chalk full of unnecessary “fuck you’s,” “shits,” and “bitches.” There’s an artistic approach and appropriate method for conveying an emotion such as anger to your readers and inserting four and five letter words whenever you can just because you can isn’t the right way for any writer who wants to be taken seriously should go. A great writer can connect with the mind and heart of their readers and uses various techniques within their creative geniuses to achieve that end goal. They don’t go hammer with the excessive use of four and five letter words.
The idea of compiling 6 stories together that speak to the social issue of domestic violence is what attracted me to this book. But needless to say, after reading several stories, I was turned off. If you’re the type of reader who can look pass the mundane use of profanity and senseless repetitive verbiage, then maybe this book could benefit you. That’s if you can overlook an occasional spelling and punctuation error.
I wasn’t impressed by this book because I expected more. The stories may be real, but are very short in length and do no justice for actual victims of domestic violence – which is most likely the author’s intended target audience. To be honest, this book sounds like a bunch of sob stories written by a bunch of bitter, tainted, and unhappy women. This book was missing several integral story layers that could’ve added a greater degree of sustenance and genuineness to the underlining messages within. The author should go for a rewrite because if I wasn’t impressed, I’m sure there are many other readers who won’t be either. Rating 2 stars
