A review by jeanettegtf
The Bay of Foxes by Sheila Kohler

mysterious fast-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? No
  • Loveable characters? No
  • Diverse cast of characters? Yes
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? It's complicated


Writing is promising, but characters fall flat into tropes. And it seems like the author got too committed to the plot, so instead of thinking of other alternatives, to keep momentum and character development going, the unrealistic plot takes over and the book falls flat.
