|Reviews for Without Disappointment There Can be No Hope|
| Guest chapter 3 . 7/3
this fic started out fairly interesting and i considered finishing all 27 chapters even though it hasn't updated in 4 years, but i think it's best to stop here.
the writing style isn't bad per se, but there's that consistently unbalanced narrative-to-dialogue ratio (the narrative outweighs dialogue) that made me.. a little put out of the story. like there was more telling than showing, more action than interaction. and while this kind of style isn't always bad- in this case there was relatively little dynamic action going on; the characters felt almost too composed, too complaisant, and too quiet (even for personalities such as Bella's and Carlisle's); and as a result i, as a reader, felt quite disconnected. also as a result, Bella and Carlisle's obviously growing mutual infatuation seemed rather sudden, insipid, and very superficially-sparked. (and somewhat juvenile on Bella's part, because for a 27-year-old who's dealt with attraction before, you'd think she'd be more self-aware about why she's blushing and getting heart palpitations... though it's understandable, perhaps, if she was in denial)
on the other hand, what i did like for all of 3 chapters is how, sometimes, the "quietness" of this story made it feel mysterious.. like the calm before a storm. i think this fic still has plenty of potential and room for development in the later chapters which i may completely miss out on since where it's heading now doesn't seem to be my cup of tea. it has its flaws, but it wasn't that terrible a way to pass the time. it's still better than a lot of other Carlisle x Bella fics i've come across, i must admit.
