I could not get passed the poor writing to enjoy this story. The incorrect use of had/has and the way the author used "Claire" in every single sentence. No "she" or "her" or anything else in sight. Sentence structure. Paragraph building. Proper use of tenses. All wrong. I ended up flouncing this story and have no idea why in the hell so many people are giving this story such high marks. I cannot be expected to get in to a book and take it seriously if I can't even get through the first chapter. When an author writes poorly and the editing, if there was any, is this bad - all it does is make the character seem, for lack of a better word, uneducated.
