Reviews of Rescue, the (2000)

Review by spiphany (2004-12-17)
Mediocre writing, uninteresting characters. I was given a German translation of this as a gift, and I only managed to get maybe a quarter of the way through it. It never engaged me at all, and I don't think the problem lay in the translation. The story is contrived, shallow, and sentimental; if it's a tear-jerker it is because the author manipulates the reader and tells them what to feel.
