did not like it
Read from March 10 to 29, 2011 , read count: 1

I didn't like this book. I felt like the language was stilted, with damn being the only curse word that was used, and it didn't come off naturally. The half-man was obviously supposed to be a substitute for slavery in America, but I didn't really think that was natural either. Ultimately, I thought the writing was stilted. It was pointed out to me that this could have been because I listened to it on talking book and I didn't like the reader, which is probably 80% of the reason I didn't like it.
