This book was very hard to get through. The author spends a lot of time explaining things that don't matter to the story. I finished it but only cuz I..Show More » was hoping it would get better. Save your money or credit for a better story.
I really like the first book in this series. Second was okay. But this one just didn't work on so many levels. Particularly irritating is the narratio..Show More »n. It is slow...too slow for the pace of the writing. Speeding it up doesn't help, in fact makes it more irritating. Don't get me wrong the narrator is a good reader and changes character flawlessly, however his choice of voice representing a black man is just idiotic. He simply plugs his nose and sounds like a white man with a cold. Sorry about political correctness and all. But it is 98% likely that a black man in the south will not sound like a white guy with a cold. Just go for it. Be authentic. It is not racist to adopt the accent and diction of a southern black man. Just go there and make it real. I'm done with these. Just lost interest and confidence that it will get any better.
