Read full description of the books:
A great title and storyline about the Jersey Shore, garage sales, movie stars, dates from hell, stalkers and the book has a great cover! A dust jacket that teases the reader with all the pertinent highlights and really doesn't give away too much but just enough. Wow! So what went wrong and earned this a two star rating of 'it was ok'?
The book has a weak opening. The pacing of the story line is not to my liking. What is presented in the first twenty pages is close to sophomoric writing. This 255 page book has 80 chapters! Yes, 80 chapters. Why? Well ...
It's a television screenplay at best. The book comes off as just having emerged from the computer application for writers who want to generate various presentations and treatments from the same work. There is complete dialogue for each character in each scene/chapter. There are descriptions of the appropriate establishing shots for each scene buried in the prose that begins chapter after chapter. This book is cut up like a looooongggg treatment for some made-for-TV show. 80 chapter. 80 scenes. 30 seconds to two minutes each. Two hour movie or three night mini-series with some additional filler scenes and an added flash back or two so that it isn't so, so, well just G-rated.
The reveal of the 'bad guy' is anti-climatic. The opening characters don't do anything at the end other than go to a picnic at the beach and they want to do it again next weekend. Not having read any other Regan Reilly book and unlikely to now, I have no knowledge to add to the quality or relationship of this book to the series. Sincerely do I wish that this is the worst. This style of formula based writing has potential to churn out readable fun books one after another. The application here however leaves me unsatisfied and perhaps mildly annoyed. I am disappointed that a book at first blush had all the ingredients for one of my favorite types of entertainment reading and failed so miserably to deliver.
I even ran across a few switches in tense that slipped through the grammar parser. Sentences that grammatically are perfect, but suddenly for one or two 'lines' switches the narration to first person and then just as suddenly back to the third person. Weird, but typical of a mass market generated work. I just wish after all these decades of this happening in popular literature, it would not.
Mobbbed had great potential and a definite catchy outline; it doesn't deliver.
