The Mermaid in the Basement by Gilbert Morris
read 6/22/2010 - 6/28/2010
It's been a while since I've read a Gilbert Morris book. Unfortunately, I was quite disappointed. I definitely enjoy meatier, more literary writing. I suppose the storyline was okay; though, I did predict the ending of this who-done-it. Mostly, however, it was the drab writing style that dragged for me. Morris does a lot of telling and explaining, when simply showing the reader would suffice. The dialogue in this book also seemed a bit forced, especially when the characters talk about faith. Why is it so hard to find quality Christian fiction?
