5.0 out of 5 stars The book I wish I could write
The beauty of this book is the internal dialogue and cadence. It is simply the best book I've read in the last two years. Unfortunately, it took me a LONG time to pick it up because the cover art did not speak to me at all. LUCKILY, I read several reviews by writers I admire - those compelled me to purchase. I am so glad I took their advice. Its taking me a long time to...

1.0 out of 5 stars I kept waiting....
I kept waiting for this book to pick up but it never did. Ater describing and setting the stage for the main character's angst, the end is anti-climactic and the character seems blase about the whole thing. I had a hard time finishing it and found it lacking.

1.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't finish it..., Nov. 30 2011
This review is from: The Antagonist (Hardcover)
I gave this novel an honest try - but found it so incredibly boring & fictional.

I had an extremely difficult time getting over the narrator's whiny tone. But what really convinced me to stop reading was when I realized the narrator was a 40-some year old with obvious "daddy-issues", who spoke like he was still 15.

Completely unrealistic tone & there was nothing that drew me in to entice me to read more.
