I was given a free electronic copy of The Skin Map by Stephen Lawhead to review by BookSneeze.
I have to admit, I had a hard time getting into this book. I think part of it was the British writing was hard for me to follow at first, but also the book is confusing. When I first started reading it, I lost interest and stopped reading. However because I had made a commitment to write a review, I decided I needed to finish it, so I started the book again after several months had past. It was easier for me to follow the second time, and I started to get into the story. It is about traveling to different worlds and times. Once you know who all the characters are and begin to understand the story line it does get interesting. However the book jumps back and forth between different characters and different time periods and places, it is hard to follow. It is the first book in a series, which means even at the end of the book not very many things are clear and you are left hanging. I feel like this is one of those series books that you will have to reread again when you have finished the complete series, so you can understand all the details from the beginning to the end. I am not sure that I would recommend this book, however since I have started the series I will probably read the next book, so I can know what happens. Even though I did not like this book very much, I can see how others might really enjoy it.
