Editor seems to have gone AWOL
Reviewed in the United States on July 24, 2019
I have loved these stories since the first but I have been quite frustrated with writing in the last couple.
Frequently, there will be a paragraph explaining some action or event, followed directly by another paragraph giving exactly the same information but using slightly different words or coming from a slightly different angle.
I cant work out whether the author feels that the readers are so stupid that he needs to say everything 2 or 3 times before they understand, or whether the editor wasn't concentrating and didn't notice that the alternative paragraphs were intended to be options. Either way, its very annoying and destroys the flow and pace of the story.
Otherwise, the plot and the historical texture are good as usual.
