Like reading the inner life of an obsessive/compulsive. Instead of endless recitation of the thought process behind every decision or action, how about some actual story? And would have been somewhat improved by not knowing who the bad guy is until you need to know who the bad guy is. And of course there's the "sometimes you get the bear, sometimes the bear gets you" cliche running through your brain the whole time. Not that there's any question about who the bear's going to get.
