The story could have been an interesting one but was bogged down with too much information and detail about the main character"s financial dealings.
I love John Corey's humor but the violence depicted seems to have been added simply to shock the reader. Story is good but the narrator had an odd inflection in his voice whenever he came to the end of a sentence that got on my nerves after a while.
I was intrigued by the concept of this book from the beginning and was not disappointed. The book is about a character who is not even alive and yet is truly an integral part of the story. The narrator makes you feel the emotions of the main character right along with her. I loved this book
The narrator of this story did it no justice with her gravely voice and southern accent which didn't cut it. I did not find myself caring what happened to any of these characters but maybe it was because I couldn't get past the narrator's presentation.
We are always told how we should "appreciate the freedoms we have in this country" but you really have to read this book to truly understand what that means. This book really held my attention and interest and I wholeheartedly recommend it.
I have enjoyed many of Andrew Klaven's past books because of the conversational tone he takes in his stories. I always like to hear his "quirky" way of thinking. This book, however, did not live up to my expectations. It was way too wordy and the parts that were supposed to be exciting and fast paced just dragged on and on and left you not really caring about what finally happened. The end of the book left many unanswered questions and I think he was just setting us up for the sequel.
