I liked the concept of this book. I liked the descriptions, the inner voice of the main character. I just wish I knew what the hell was going on in it. To me it reads as if the author had an extremely short attention span or was hoping the reader had. Descriptions of scenes involving the characters would just change to completely different scenes with out any rhyme or reason. It's almost as if the author wrote a paragraph, got distracted and then came back many hours later, having forgot what he had written, and continued on.

I wanted to like this book. (Strangely part of me still does). I just find the constant jumping about of the characters with out any attempt at linking scenes together, hard to follow. The plot is so hazy. I often re-read chapters because I thought I had some how skipped over a number of paragraphs and lost the storyline. Not so.

Read this book if you wish. Just be prepared to be confused and wondering why some extra time couldn't have been spent shaping a really good concept into a better story. ( )
