KtMac Reviews: The Sandalwood Tree


Author: Elle Newmark

The Good: The imagery (see an early theme running through my reviews yet) was great. I really felt like I was seeing India through Evie's eyes. I could also feel her fascination with the letters....I'd probably be just as enchanted with the authors of hidden letters if I found some hidden in my home too. 

The Bad: Eh, it felt a bit disjointed. I understood the reasoning behind writing the book like she did, but it didn't flow as well. I also was not at all happy with the ending. 

The Verdict: A solid "meh." Read it if you're bored or trying to avoid mandatory reading (like me on IT migration strategies...zzzzz)....skip it if you've got any other book that sounds more interesting.
