This is a very difficult review for me to write. I almost backed out of writing this, that would be a first for me. I finished this book a while ago and I’ve been going back and forth with myself over what I should do. I’ve decided to go ahead with this review and as you read on the why will become clear.
A Dominant Man is much like most of the other reviews portray it to be. It is a FSOG clone. And I do mean CLONE, there are so many similarities that at a few points I had to stop and think….am I rereading FSOG? I thought about listing them but there are just way to many. And I absolutely despised that, I mean if I want to reread FSOG I will open it up and reread it.
I forced myself to finish this book, you know why? Because I just HAD to see if it ended the same way FSOG did. (no I’m not going to tell you). Throughout the first half of the book I couldn’t stand Ella and Damian, but as I got through the second half of the book I began to see little snippets of this writers true abilities, they would show themselves and they gave me a glimpse into the writing she is capable of, and for that reason alone I finished the book and am posting this review.
I will read book 2 when it comes out, praying that the glimpses of great original writing I spotted late in A Dominant Man get a chance to shine on their own, without the supporting scenes taken directly from other works.
I gave this book 3 stars on the wonderful writing ability I see in this writer.
