The Forgotten Ones: A Boring Unimaginative Fantasy

Updated on February 23, 2016

The Forgotten Ones By Laura Howard

The Forgotten Ones Book Review

So it was my birthday back at the beginning of last November and as a gift I got the budget line Kindle. Of course I love real books more than digital any day, but I have to relocate for my job soon and I can’t take my library with me sadly. So it might have been a good thing I got it in that case. But did what I always do when I started it up, I downloaded the free kindle books. And one of these downloads was a fantasy called The Forgotten Ones by Laura Howard.

So what is it about? It focuses on a reclusive college girl name Allison who lives with her grandparents helping them take care of her schizophrenic mother. In fact, helping her mother has taken control of most of her life as she takes all responsibility on the matter and feels guilty when she doesn’t help. Her friend tries their hardest to pull her out of her shell so she can enjoy life. Then just as that happens her long lost father shows up claiming he is fey and that she has fey blood as well.

So for the good and bad? Let’s get started with the easiest stuff first, which is regrettably the bad. Why is it bad? This book is just so boring. I think I read phone books more exciting than this. This is one those books you read every word of and then at a point you realize you don’t know what happened in the past ten pages because it’s so uninteresting, and you must go back and re read it with heavy concentration. A book should be enjoyed, not be a chore to the reader. Also another problem has is that the detail is so lacking it is impossible to tell what is going on. On top of that, the story as a whole s just very good.

Now the good? There wasn’t much good here, but was a moment. There was a scene where Allison went on a date, and it was charming. There was some real chemistry in that scene and sadly was much more exciting than anything else this book had to offer.

Overall, this is a bad book that is terribly written with no interesting elements what so ever. This should be skipped by everyone because it’s most unimaginative boring books ever written. I have to give this a low score.

1 smoothie out of four.

Overall Rating: A Boring Unimaginative Fantasy
