2023 Book Review: Till I Bleed No More

by Alexander Ellis

A Historical Fiction, Independently Published in 2023, 352 Pages 

What I Didn’t Like:

  • Grammatical errors are present. Usually in the form of a missing or incorrect word form. There’s also occasions of repeated words that bog down the text without adding anything. Dialogue is also incorrectly formatted a few times and is frequently awkward.
  • The text tends toward long sentences which gives the prose a sort of rambling feeling. It can be hard to catch a rhythm in this story because of those long sentences.
  • There are scenes that could be cut down. They add nothing to the story and cause a drag that isn’t needed in an otherwise action-packed story. 

What I Did Like:

  • Pirates. What’s not to like about pirates? There’s danger and excitement mixed with battles that keep the story moving.
  • Casper is a solid character. The emotional connections and tendency Casper has to care for his fellow characters is heartwarming. It makes you want good things for this character. 
  • Action scenes are easy to picture. 

Who Should Read This One:

  • Fans of pirate stories who, perhaps, want something a little more realistic than a lot of what is available out there and who are not overly bothered by grammatical errors. 

My Rating: 2 Stars

  • Poor editing is problematic for me and it can often ruin a good story.
