lonemagpie: 10Doc whats (wtf)
Finally finished The Devil's Own, aka The Witches, by "Peter Curtis" who was actually Norah Lofts. Quite a short book, but a long slog cos it was so crap. Basically there's 60-70 page novella in it, stretched to 330 pages or so by padding out with descriptions of every garden or living room the viewpoint character goes into. Towards the end there are sudden switches of POV within paragraphs, and little info-dumps out of nowhere... And that amazingly annoying thing where suddenly the POV character's viewpoint becomes very coy in a clumsy way to try to keep from the reader what's in her bag...

Urgh.
