The idea for the plot of this story was good. Too bad the author couldn't develop the narration well. Developing characters is essential for a good story. I really appreciate your honest review. I'll keep this book away from me.

Dudley eh? That sounds like Harry Potter's cousin who is also a bully. My curiousity now is evoked about the unexpected missing of Dudley. However, since you said you are disappointed, then I think I will have to pass this book because I'm not ready for another disappointment in the story ending and in character development. Thank you for your good and honest review.

I love mystery and make-believe but when the story is so unrealistic, it loses its appeal. Thanks for the insightful review. I hope the author will improve the book.

Well it seem like this is very much captivating book with suspense story of missing boy Dudley, but its lacking of character development and unconvincing plot may be holding back this book. otherwise it could be nice story to read.

I am sure there are kids who eavesdrop on their parents and obtain access to their weapons. Either way, sounds like the author did not develop well the characters. I will pass. Thanks for the review.

There are so many things that happen in real life that are so unbelievable or unthinkable that a wise author won't mind writing about if selling the book is more important. Nonetheless, such doesn't really mean that such stories really aren't true. Thank you for your honest review.
