Review: Dark Inside by Jeyn Roberts

I had been looking forward to reading this book for some weeks now. I am quite sad with how much it disappointed me :\ I wasn't sure what star to give it. The story is worth a 3.5, but for me, the writing is only a 2.5..

I get why many people love this book, and if I hadn't been so obsessed with good writing I would have loved it too. I liked the plot. Found it to be great. I also liked that there were so many different POVs. Was a bit worried at first, but I really liked that.

We got to know the story of a lot of people. And I enjoyed that. Although it didn't really "close" at the ending of the book; I felt there could have been a hundred pages more. So that is good about the book. The plot is kind of amazing, and the characters were likable. Sort of.

There wasn't any romance, which I kind of disliked. Although there was a few tiny romances, they didn't make me feel anything. But that might be because of how terrible I thought the writing was. You would like this book if you don't mind bad writing.

But oh, I can't stand it. I kind of hated the writing. It wasn't good. It didn't seem.. real. It didn't make me feel anything. And it made it hard for me to keep reading :\ But still, it is a good book. Mostly. If you are able to stand the writing :)


Update July 7th 2013: I had to change my rating for this book from a three star to a two star. Why? Because while it has been a while since I read it, I just realized that I was not being honest when rating it. I did not enjoy it as much as I claimed with my three star rating. And because of that I had to change it. Because I like being honest, and giving this a star more than it deserve is not being honest. It is officially a two star for me, because I can’t even remember much of the story, and I would not ever re-read the book. I’m sorry, but not really, because you can’t love every book.


  1. I've been meaning to read this for a while now. Hopefully I will like it a little more than you! :D It's a shame the writing wasn't to your taste but at least you were still able to think it was a good book. Nice review! :)
