It took me a long time to get through this one. If I could, I'd give this book 2.5 stars. The dysfunctional life of the main character ranged from somewhat interesting to mildly annoying. There were a few instances where I found it hard to keep track of the plot, which jumped around in time. Not the worst book I've read, just so-so.

I loved most of this, but hated the first 75 pages and found the ending premature. Interesting idea, semi-poor execution.
