    "Yuck!"
    What would have made Exley better?

    If there was anything that held any meaning. Unless this is the authors own life experience, I didn't see any reason for this story other than anger


    Would you ever listen to anything by Brock Clarke again?

    No


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I liked the boy. I felt bad for him. I don't think this story could take place anywhere. The characters were wildly unrealistic and nuts. If it was science fiction that might have redeemed it slightly


    Any additional comments?

    It left me feeling disturbed, frustrated and sad
