Reviews of Wisps of Cloud by Ross Richdale

John Whelan reviewed on July 26, 2019

Definitely readable but may not be for you if you can't skip the misprints in the text. I've noticed one or two in his other books as well.

I think the problem is when authors typed their way through one book a year and published through a publisher the process included editors and proof readers. In today's self publishing world they seem to have disappeared. The authors have a wider range of experience than the traditional authors and can churn out books much faster and they are cheaper than a traditional printed hardback book.

The author's computer expert seems to walk on water compared to my own experience in the industry. It is extremely rare that one computer person has such a wide range of experience but if you can overlook the misprints you can probably overlook the improbability of his computer expert and it is fiction. One wonders if it is meant to be science fiction then of course a computer expert would know everything.

This was a thoroughly exciting novel that I enjoyed reading. I look forward to following Karla in the other books in this trilogy.

I couldn't finish this book. There are annoying typos, the main characters named was Kare for a while! Too much detail about how NZ school system is run.

What annoyed me the most was after Chrissy's attack and all these women (the wife, Karla and now Chrissy) letting him get away with attacking women for years. When Chrissy turned to Karla for help she never mentioned the same thing nearly happened to her the year previously. Just couldn't read any more.
