bookshelves: cannot-finish, mystery-thriller
Read in April, 2011

Everyone has certain requirements that must be satisfied before they can move on to enjoy the rest of the novel. I require a basic level of serviceable, if not necessarily good, writing, in order for me to move on to the plot, atmosphere, etc.

With this in mind, I knew I was in trouble when I started reading about "half-Asian, half-German smile lines" in mirrors, and other indescribable awkwardness of phrasing and sentence structure, overly-fussy descriptions, and the numerous signs of a very new writer.

If such things bother you as well, give this one a miss.
