So, I was curious about the colouring book hype, and since Persuasion is one of my favourite books ever, I thought I'd give that one a try.
I had a hard time even figuring out with which of the pages I should start. I was, admittedly, never very big on colouring, so I tried to find something easy that I could imagine in my unartistic mind. I failed. Most of these patterns are so intricate and detailed that instead of relaxing while colouring in, I got even more stressed. Missed a line. Not enough colours. Made it too colourful after all. Repeating, repeating, repeating the same pattern over and over. And why is that pattern cut off and doesn’t fit on the page anymore?
In my second attempt to get into colouring, I ventured further into the book – you don’t read it, so you don’t have to start at page on and finish on the last – trying to find something really easy. And I did. I did fine colouring it. It was almost fun. The sad part was, now it’s over and I probably won’t find another pattern like that in the book, so no more fun.
There are many, many black lines to consider in the sketches and patterns, which makes the pages overall very black and uninviting. I keep wondering whether, once I get started with these, I will be able to find the colour in the final picture.
I have already mentioned that Persuasion is a favourite of mine. So, I had expectations about this book. Certain scenes that I wanted to find and colour in. Well, none of them really made it. And with the scenes there are, I don’t see this wonderful story developing.
Maybe I’ve had too naïve an approach to the entire thing, not adult and artsy enough, but I just cannot find the joy I hoped for in this colouring book.

Read information about the authorWelcome to the engrossing world of M.C. FRANK's books, where characters aren't going to have an easy time of it: They will find themselves in icy-cold dystopian worlds where kissing is forbidden (among other things), or in green forests ruled by evil Sheriffs. If they're in Jane Austen's England, they have to be running away from a traumatic childhood, or if they are in our contemporary world, they're scared they'll die before they have finished high school. That sort of thing.
Don't worry, though, she knows we all need a little hope and joy in our lives, so there's a good dose of those as well in everything she writes.
M.C. Frank (writer, reader, designer, physicist and teacher, to name a few) has been living in a world of stories ever since she can remember (that's before she knew how to write). She started writing them down when she could no longer stand the characters in her head screaming at her to give them life, and while those first scribblings weren't exactly good (nor were they books, although she insisted on calling them that), they were enough for her to discover her passion in life.
She got her university degree in physics a few years ago (yes, she's like Sheldon, only a bit crazier!) and is now free to pursue her love of reading and writing, as well her free-lance job as editor-in-chief. She lives with her 'dude' in a home filled with candles, laptops and notebooks, where she rearranges her overflowing bookshelves every time she feels stressed.
Which is often, since (as you might have noticed) she doesn't pick the easiest subjects for her novels.
