Sanity’s Flaw: Review Round Up

Given I’m still trudging through my editorial review of The Nobodies and have been too busy to put the finishing touches on the book trailer, I’ve very little excitement to share; however, I thought it’d be fun to share the few reviews for Sanity’s Flaw I’ve gathered since the last update. I’m hoping for a sudden deluge of reviews from the massive response I got while the book was free, but alas, there’re only three to share for now.

On a side note, I’m learning quite a bit from this book’s publication and subsequent marketing, and already using it to make plans for The Nobodies’ release. Stay tuned.

From kbbooch (Honestly, I’ve no idea who this person is.):

I recently read Sanitys Flaw. It took me a chapter or two to get used to the dialog and then WHAM I was hooked! I don't knows if I can wait until April for the next book in the series.

I believe Warren Pawlowski has a promising career ahead of him and I
look forward to adding his books to my library.


From Bettelue (My grandmother—isn’t she great? She told me while at a family picnic that she started reading it one afternoon and couldn’t go to sleep until she had finished it. That made me feel absolutely fantastic.):

This is a great story. It is an unusual story becaue the killer is talking to us throughout the book. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes mystery and also to those who only reads them once in a while.

From Kitty Schweizer (A high school friend never afraid to give an honest opinion—love it—though I haven’t spoken to her at length in years.):

I really enjoyed the book. The plot and characters were well developed. Telling it from the killer's point of view definitely made the book more interesting than a random 3rd person omnipotent POV.

My only problem with this book is the dialogue- it was extremely difficult to follow. Sometimes I didn't know scenes had changed, when people entered or exited a conversation, or who people were talking to because there was little description of where things were happening or what was going on. This is because of the emphasis on pure dialogue and not on developing the area or situation. (In fact, the whole book read more like a play than an actual book).

That said, once you can get over this part (which does improve as the book goes on), you will like the book. I'm sure the author will develop his skills as time goes on- I look forward to reading his next book.
