Perhaps the most frustrating issue with this book was the lack of characterization. Although the surface details were drawn with care, the characters themselves came out as flat. Flat, flat, flat, totally flat. You could not imagine an emotion more than a silly grin on any of them. Even the dog and cat seemed more archetypes of the species than real, live, breathing animals. I rate this book one star for lack of characterization alone. Not recommended.
Wow, that was pretty harsh. What was your book about?
It was children’s book that featured a family of gingerbread people… Totally flat.
