    "Shockingly bad"

    This title offered some promise from its description, but it was shockingly bad both in terms of story and narration. The story reads like an 8th grader's scribblings, with no character development, a ham-fisted plot, and extremely poor use of language ("i was naked as, as I told myself, a jaybird."). The narrator was no better, using a wooden delivery and terrible accents, particularly his idiot-JFK rendition of the protagonist's boss. This is a must-avoid.
