So I started The Chocolate War. So far I like it. It's a male author and a male cast, but he does well with it. The only complaint I have so far is the numerous characters he throws around. He switches back and forth between many of the boys giving some only a few pages or half a chapter.
I find it sometimes hard to follow the story between all the characters. There are a few main characters I think he would have done well sticking with and then throwing the rest as background characters instead of giving them their own scenes.
We'll see how the rest goes. Check back later.
Blogs are whatever we make them. Defining ‘Blog’ is a fool’s errand.
