I am a book blogger and I got back to my roots by picking up one of the books submitted to our blog for an honest review. This one was called Trust by R.A. Hayes.
Synopsis: Police Chief Corey Conn thinks his home town of Prosper Point is the perfect place to end his career in the force. Till recently, it had been a quiet, small town with simple problems and good people. Now, people are rioting in the streets, anger and hate is rising on every corner. Guns are loaded, as people take shelter in the community center. The only hope the town might have is the stranger who just arrived.
The citizens of Prosper Point quickly fall victim to a terrifying disease. Panic quickly builds and the uninfected soon band together to fight off their neighbors and friends. When all hope seemed lost, a stranger appears from nowhere. Who will they trust?
This book was really hard to get through. I believe that the only reason I finished it is because of my own stubborn attitude towards leaving things unfinished.
I think the book had good intentions but it just didn’t sit well with me. It felt like religion was being forced down my throat at every turn. It left no other options other than to choose one way, and one way only.
The characters were not very dimensional and needed a lot of fleshing out. They didn’t have many personality traits and I couldn’t find an attachment to any of them. There were some characters that I thought would be a big part of the book due to them being presented as the main characters in the summary that were hardly in it at all.
I honestly just think that the book could use another run through and maybe not be so pushy on those that aren’t religious. I understand if it is meant for one target audience but in doing so, will alienate so many other diverse groups of people that could potentially be picking up the book.
Book Rating: 1/5
