Okay, here’s a nod to “Money can’t buy happiness.”
It’s beautiful, I’ll give them that. Visually interesting. Great music. Well done. But…
What is it about?
No, really, I’m asking. Has anyone read this series? Does anyone know what the story is? Because I sure don’t! And, yup, you guessed it, that’s a bad thing.
Really, it’s a beautiful video. I’m just not sure what it’s about. It’s a sci-fi thriller—and there’s definitely some thrill here. And it’s about some kind of galactic convergence of some kind—with space ships—so there’s some science there.
But where’s the fiction? Where’s the story?
The trailer ends with a question: “Do you really want to know?”
The answer is: “Yes, I really want to know what the story is before you stand any chance of tempting me to buy it.” Just a taste? A hint, maybe? Is that really so much to ask from a book trailer?
They’ve obviously got a budget worthy of an excellent book trailer. But I think they missed the point.
