    PDF/EPUB Colleen McCullough µ The Touch Kindle ´ µ touch ebok, The Touch PDF/EPUBI am annoyed that I allowed myself to get sucked into reading this book The characterizations manage to be both simplistic and inconsistent both within themselves and compared with actual humans The plot is contrived melodramatic and not remotely credible The way the characters relate among one another is also absurd they constantly make speeches about How Much They've Learned while acting simultaneously immature and world weary I finally dropped the book in disgust when I got to the part where a twelve month old not only speaks in complete sentences but makes insightful observations about the moods health and motivations of the adults around her Oh Please That's not a novel that's a fantasy comic book Do NOT waste your
