This is an excellent review. I found myself reading the sample and wanting to know more about the story, and the review really captures everything perfectly. I personally didn’t like the excessive use of profanity but it seems like a great message and overall story.

Latest Review: Opaque by Calix Leigh-Reign

Post by littlegems »

Thank you for your review. I, like some of the others, could not get past the first 4 pages because the language was so rough that I could not always understand what was being said. Your review gave me a little more information. I have to say, though, that I felt like the main message of your review was only about the first paragraph of the book, which I found disappointing. I feel like I only had to read the first paragraph of the story to know what the bulk of your review was about, so I didn't even need to read the rest of the book if it was just about the same thing. Maybe I didn't get the gist of what you were saying in your review, but I only read the first 4 pages and, from that, I felt like I got the whole message that I read in your review.

I am a big fan of greek mythology and as a recent high school graduate, I am also a strong believer in a change in the education system. This book seems very, very interesting, I will definitely check it out. Thank you for the review! :D

Thank goodness for your review because the opening pages were an absolute puzzle to me. Sentences were constructed very poorly in this, and when you mentioned metaphor and simile usage, I wholeheartedly agree. I got lost, and the message I think this author was trying to convey got lost. Thank you for further insight into the sad story of Oris. I think it’s an important one about not squelching creativity in kids, but the writing style is not for me.

Sounds like an interesting read. I am against the typical education system and upbringing methods of moulding the children into a ready made mould of parent's expectations.
Looking forward to reading it.

I agree, kids should be living their life in childhood, not stuck in school being stressed out. I like that the author includes that. It sounds like an interesting read.

Thank you for this review. It sure sounds like an interesting read. I hate that schools put so much pressure on education and examinations that talents are left undiscovered.

This certainly has a different plot than one normally sees. I like the underlying theme. I think the author is right in that talents are not developed as much as they could be. Thanks for the well-written and informative review!

As a reader myself ... This is captivating, not all are willing to give up on something in return to have a better and beautiful world to live in, I would definitely want to read more and excited to what would be the outcome of his actions.

I love the concept of this review and will rather look into the message the author want to drive out here, Many children suffers a lot trying to please their parents in the area of education and choices on career which makes this book most relevant to aspect of parenting and children's talent.

These looks to be a good writing but too much metaphor is not good for any writing and aside from that this was quite interesting

Your review is an honest one and I appreciate it. The book has a good plot and conveys the dilemma talented children from poor backgrounds deal with it. This speaks to many parents and would be beneficial to them when revised properly. Thanks Aniza
