Earlier this week we published a review of Forward to Camelot by Susan Sloate and Kevin Finn. In the last two paragraphs I discussed a sequence of events that I found unbelievable in the context of the story and, happening as the book was coming to a climax, this
effected affected my enjoyment and rating of the book.
It was brought to my attention by the authors that in discussing my concerns I made two errors of fact. I said a group of characters, including the main character, Cady, had “slept for several hours” near Galveston and didn’t leave for New Orleans until morning. They didn’t sleep (it appears I confused the actions of another character with them) and in fact left for New Orleans immediately when the plane they were on was unable to take off.
My other concerns (the plane and pilot that the character Don magically arranged for and the, to me, illogical decision to travel by boat rather than car) still stand and the errors I made don’t change my overall rating of the book, but does significantly weaken my justification.
