So much disappointment! I wasted my time with this poorly-written attempt at a novel after reading a positive review. Then, I went looking more carefully and saw that most every positive review on Amazon was published before the official release or within the first week it was out and was written by a professional reviewer who'd received this book for free. I guess getting paid by S&S is reason enough to promote junk.

Hoffman uses a bag full of literary 'tricks of the trade' to try to make this novel interesting, but it just doesn't work that way. I don't think Hoffman's calling is really for writing novels.

To be honest, this author reminds me of some of the people I attended art school with -- those people who thought that making someone gasp meant that they had made compelling art. To me, that is just a sign of a hack.

At least I got this book for less than $2 -- the publisher is already selling these books to half.com resellers as overstock!
