The Three Sisters by Bryan Taylor #ReviewShare #BlogTour #Satire

The Three SistersThe Three Sisters by Bryan Taylor
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Concept wise, this was a good book. It made me laugh and think of the "traditions" we've had to get used to over the years. Technique wise, this book needs tons of work. It's all over the place. Literally. I can understand if some sections are out of place for stylistic reasons but the vocabulary, placement of scenes / chapters didn't always make sense.

Satire and parody can sometimes be easily misunderstood so it is difficult to find middle ground. However, in the case of The Three Sisters, Bryan Taylor did take some views too far. Especially this was a FICTION read.

Sister Act (Whoopi Goldberg) and We're No Angels (Demi Moore) are at least two movies that have taken their swipes at Christian churches. However, you can walk away with some appreciation for the technique and style of these movies.

As much as I liked the concept, I think this book needs a good developmental editor. Recommended if you are okay with some flaws.
