Burning Midnight by Will McIntosh
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Yup, guess what I read another young adult title. Why?!?! Kevin?!?! are you that hard up for books?? Yes..and shut up for a second, I'll explain.
I am a fan of Mr. McIntosh, still am even though he wrote a YA title, (and I did like it, didn't LOVE it, but liked.) I also am fairly huge into collecting things/potential hoarding, which is central to the theme. I really have liked the other books I have read from this author as well. HOWEVER, my complaints about young adult titles are in full effect here, contrived romance, stiff characters, you know the rest.
So if I hate the genre, why the three stars and why the like? If you follow my reviews, I do not write reviews for books I don't like. I don't believe in talking about stories or books I didn't care for. I write to share my love of books and stories, so 3 stars is AS low a score as you will see me give.
Mr. McIntosh had a great idea, he is a good writer...he just wedged this into a typical cookie cutter story.
