Read from October 07 to 12, 2011

1995. I started out liking the story and the author's voice, drawn in by the setting and the rhythm of the narration. The more I read, the less I liked the characters, the story, the narration, and the artificiality of the tale.

To the point that I can say I regret wasting my time reading such a well-written, carefully constructed foolish story.

Have you ever liked a book a little bit less with each page you turned? This one got worse for me the further I read. If there was a zero star rating, I'd give it.

A phony, arrogant, white man's tale full of cut out characters in a sitcom setting aiming for reality style dramedy.

What a waste of talent.
