Feels Like School Lessons ... it’s all school lectures & lessons

2.5

Too much telling and now showing.

The first chapter was the deepest part with the character development.
Chapter two laid the foundation for the world building.
From there, it was bland; the short chapters stifled any real commitment and failed to gather momentum.
I felt like I was in school, as it was 98% about his school classes and everything that was being taught.

Michael Mola was a good narrator. He strengthened to compensate for the storyline. Had I picked up the book (to read), I would have DNF.
