The Olive Readers

by Christine Aziz

This was the winner of the Richard and Judy 'How to get Published' competition last summer - how Why The plot was really disjointed, I really didnt care about the characters and what plot there was seemed to have been taken from various other far better novels. Some parts just seemed ridiculous especially towards the end of the book, the ending was really rushed.

This book just falls to pieces after its opening chapters. Its a mess of a story and will remain in my bin for sometime. I think I read somewhere that it won the prize on the basis of its opening chapters or a summary or something like and then winning the obligation was there to publish. I'm sure this and, no doubt a rush of a dealdine to get it out did affect some things suhc as the ending.
