Dustin Reviews: The Final Acclaim by J.D. Willd

As Cameron’s story comes to an end …friendships are tested.

Marriages fall apart. Children grow up. And the world deals with a great loss.

Cameron is doing everything in his power to keep his family’s company running smooth, while dealing with the effects of married life. Julie has found the perfect man, now she has to keep all that she holds dear safe from her mistakes. As Christian grows up, Cameron has to deal with the fact that his only child has become a monster.

This reviewer found The Final Acclaim difficult, if not challenging to read due to the overwhelming number of errors, particularly the incorrect use of words (plain – plane, to – too, brian – brain, etc) The obvious lack of proofreading destroyed my ability to even attempt to enjoy a pleasant read. The story is a long continuous narrative with one dimensional characters which did not allow this reader to make any emotional connection whatsoever.

 I found the acknowledgment at the end of the book rather humorous:

 Thanks to my manager … my agent, and my editor I could not have come this far without you.”

 My advice Mr Willd: fire the editor, you got screwed!

Had this book been Mr Willd‘s first book, I could have overlooked the errors (to some extent), but Mr Willd has a number of published books. I’m disappointed in this book and don’t see myself purchasing any of his other titles in the future.

About the author

J. D. Willd is the author of several novels, four collections of poetry, and three children’s books. He lives in Kentucky with his family. And when he is not busy writing, he works with the American Cancer Society to help find a cure for cancer. A cause he joined proudly after the death of his mother in 2009 from “Small Cell Lung Cancer”. Several of Willd’s poems have been used by “ACS” to help further the fight against cancer, including “Birthdays” a poem inspired by the “More Birthdays” campaign.
