did not like it
bookshelves: unfinished
Read from April 16 to 25, 2012

Bleeeeeh, I quit!

I need to learn to do this more- quit a novel after 10 chapters or so when I clearly realize that it will disappoint me in the end. Call my policy discriminatory, but I can’t give YA the same privilege as Classics or Booker Prize winners. They are not allowed to be boring! Or slow! Or have a dull premise! Or be average !

Plus, the character and the choices they make are so bizarre. One moment the male protagonist is cribbing about dying, the next he is checking out some girl, next moment he has the urge to touch a different girl, who for some mysterious reason is at one moment mad at him, and other moment starts making out with him. The novel asks too many questions, and if other reviewers are to be believed, it never gives satisfactory answers.
