The Oracle Philon: A Colton Banyon Mystery (Kindle Edition)
This is a noisy book. I’ll tell you why in a moment and why I gave the book three stars. First, combine ancient artifacts with weather (Something is happening to the weather. Catastrophic events are occurring all over the world). and archeology and you’ve hooked me. The author didn’t disappoint. It’s a good adventure yarn, buy it is noisy and frankly the author should go back and edit the book. I counted 78 times the author used “screamed” and 27 times the author used the verb “yelled.” It’s ok if the verbs are used when you need to talk loudly amidst multiple hand-held automatic weapons firing, but even in polite conversation! If the characters are talking loudly, try shriek, screech, howl, shout, bellow, bawl, cry out, call out, yelp, squeal, wail, squawk; holler etc. I don’t believe people should raise their voices 105 times in a book.
Would I read another Gerald J. Kubicki book? Not without doing a word search.
