I read pretty much anything, from fantasy (City of Stairs by Robert Jackson Bennett) to romance (Bared to You by Sylvia Day) to classics (Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad).  The only genres I don't read are self-help and comic books/graphic novels.

Illegal by Jose Angel N

Illegal - Jose Angel N

I received a free Adobe Digital Editions copy of this book from the publisher through Netgalley, this has not compromised my ability to write an honest and critical review of the book.


23/2 - I just finished the six page foreword by F. Gonzalez-Crussi. It was very well written, informative and properly punctuated. I just hope the author's writing is of a similar standard, because otherwise Gonzalez-Crussi's is really going to shine a spotlight on any editing errors - they will be even more obvious and irritating than they would have been if we hadn't had six pages of such lovely prose. To be continued...


26/2 - The author's writing is good, not quite as lyrical as the foreword, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. If Jose Angel N's writing style was similar to F. Gonzalez-Crussi's I would be a bit suspicious considering the journey his life has taken. I do wish that the Mexican interspersed with the English was readable by all - I don't know any Mexican and so I've had to guess from the context what the three instances (so far) of Mexican language mixed into the English were meant to mean. To be continued...


3/3 - Simply ran out of time to finish this. If I ever get the chance to continue reading I will.
