It is a rare thing for me to give up on a book, I hardly ever even skim read. With this novel however, I went from the determined "it must get better" thoughts to "well I'll skim read this bit" to "I give up, where's the bin ?".
There was so much needless description, the process of trawling through all that prose just to discover that it was a hot day or that a burger bar was clean and sterile was just not worth it.
Shame, if the book had been trimmed by two thirds I would have been able to finish and sum it up properly.
