BookLife Prize Critic's Report
The BookLife Prize has sent me my Critic's Report for The Mummy of Monte Cristo, and I was overjoyed to see that they rated it 9/10 across the board! Here's what they had to say, quoted from the Critic's Report.
Plot: The book has plenty of effective twists and turns to keep a reader hooked. From the very first page, the author grips the readers’ attention throughout Edmond Dantes' journey.
Prose/Style: The style of writing is fast-paced, and even though there are places where the author gives detailed context to the characters and situations, the flow of the story is not broken. The length of the book can be a challenge, but there is enough motivation for one to turn the page.
Originality: Though the story is adapted from Alexandre Dumas' The Count of Monte Cristo, the author manages to bring new and exciting eements to the story.
Character Development/Execution: The story is packed with well-developed, likable characters. The vampires, zombies, and other creatures are quite memorable. The main character, Edmond Dantes, raises important questions regarding one's humanity.
Plot/Idea: 9 out of 10
Originality: 9 out of 10
Prose: 9 out of 10
Character/Execution: 9 out of 10
Overall: 9.00 out of 10
I'll definitely be picking out some quotes from this report to add to my book blurb and Amazon product details! A big thank you to the anonymous BookLife reviewer who wrote the report, whoever you are, and I'm glad you enjoyed the book.
