The Finisher (Vega Jane, #1) by David BaldacciI was bitterly disappointed in this book. I expected better of Baldacci, being an established prize winning author, but I guess he just cant write for Young Adults. The basic plot of the book is sound, good strong male and female leads, mysterious past, yada yada, but Baldacci cant write fantasy/other worlds. He just goes too far. The point of writing about other worlds is that they are different but have many things the same so that the reader can relate. Baldacci changes things that there is no point changing - using Wugs instead of People; Lights instead of Days; a very annoying use of Males and Females instead of men and women; Slivers instead of Minutes and so on. There was absolutely no point to it and only made the prose clumsy and laboured. There was enough of a difference in the magic and fantasy creatures for us to realise that we werent on Earth, to go further was just overwriting. A pity, but the plot was traditional and unexciting, and the clumsy language really off-putting.
