My Family Storybook by Gwendolyn Leavell


Before I begin, I want to say that I really like the idea behind the stories. I think this book has a lot of great potential. I will not bash this book at all. I do want to give some constructive criticism on the things that turned me off from this book. Hopefully it will help the author so that they can make this book even better. One of the biggest things that made me leery is the fact that the proper tense wasn’t used. I almost didn’t finish this book just for that reason. However, I was curious, so I decided to truck on through besides that. It kind of felt like the author was rushing through it all. There’s not a lot of character development and it’s not really clear who the main characters are (if there are any). There’s only two stories. I feel like there could have been more than two stories in order to properly call this a story book. Also, both stories were full of plot holes. There’s not really a definite beginning middle or end. It just kind of begins and goes on til the author is done. Like I said at the beginning of this review, I really think this book has great potential. I think the author needs to take it back to the drawing board and expand on it. I also feel that the tense needs to be fixed. I’m not sure if I’d recommend it now, but I’d definitely recommend a fully edited version of it! It has great potential to be a wonderful book!
