As with all of the other books by this author cannot expect adjectives Beyond the scope of great or awesome or weird or cool. There is no question that the story is very poorly written. At the same time, it does portray a certain mindset, and provides a pretty compelling story line and and narrative.

This Book is okay as long as you do not have high expectations for adjectives beyond words like awesome cool neat. Also expect to hear the phrase that really sucked a lot. Really is poorly written but the story does keep you intrigued. Lastly it is a good snapshot of a mindset that is a little disturbing.
