Between

Between - Cyndi Tefft I flounced because of a lack of characterization – I actually went back and reread chapter one just to make sure I hadn't missed the author introducing the main character, Lyndsey. There was absolutely no introduction – I had no idea how old she was, what she looked like, why she was acting the way she was. Within twenty pages (of over five hundred for my ePub version) she's dead; within forty-two she's crying over the possibility of leaving behind Aiden, the 'Transporter' she just met on her way to Heaven. I'm still not sure what attracted her to him, other than the fact that he looked like a 'Greek god'.There were also the typical grammar mistakes I'm sure we've all seen in self-published books – comma issues, redundancies, misuse of commonly confused phrases and words (including one that is my ultimate pet-peeve). I gave the book seven chapters to capture my attention and skimmed the rest just in case I was missing something.
