What a change

by Elaine B on Aug 19, 2010

James Lee Burke has been one of my favorite authors for many years. The first of his novels I'd read was The Neon Rain, which was beautifully written. I fell in love with his style and have read everything he's written since then. When I purchased Half of Paradise I was expecting the same WOW that I'd experienced with Burke's other novels, all I can say is Mr. Burke has come a long way. If I had read Half of Paradise and not known who the author was I wouldn't have had a clue that it was James Lee Burke. The sentences are choppy, with poor story line and it's down right boring!
