Review: Beneath

Review of Beneath
by H.B. Moore:

My Thoughts:

Beneath was a fast paced short story about a girl in Witness Protection. The story itself was very well written but it was so short! The plot was jam-packed with action but rushed and anticlimactic. I liked the protagonist well enough but she was rather gullible and a bit of sheep. There was some romance attempted - which seems pretty ridiculous when you think about it. How can you develop a relationship in thirty pages? I thought they were cute together but I just didn't believe it would have worked out for Anna so easily.

Overall, I enjoyed this for what it was but it could have vastly benefited from some development.

  1. It seems like the story could have been better if it was longer. Not exactly an entire novel but maybe a novella, with a hundred pages or so. I totally agree that it wouldn't be possible to develop a relationship in 30 pages. Unless it was instalove, but I hate those (most of the time).

    1. It would have been better if it had been at least a short novella. Only having a thirty page story is a little ridiculous! How did they honestly think they were going to develop that relationship!? Yeah, it was instalove unfortunately. And I agree wholeheartedly that I hate it too.

  2. I hate it when a book you like is entirely too short. You're just getting to know the characters, then - bam - finished. But at least you liked it! ^-^

    1. Luckily it was a semi-enjoyable one. That is the one downside of novellas! :)
