‘Broken Flowers’ by Howard Finkelstein was a huge disappointment to me. I have given two stars because I still think the story had great potential and I read to the end to see if it did actually go anywhere; unfortunately it didn’t, and all that potential didn’t come to fruition. The book is rushed and disjointed, the characters are not developed and the storyline is pactically incoherent. I don’t like giving poor reviews as I would hate to be the author reading this, but equally, I would hate to be the customer who paid for it. This was an free advance copy in return for an honest review.
