did not like it
bookshelves: couldn-t-finish
Read from March 12 to 14, 2012

I couldn't finish this book, and it's very rare that I don't finish what I've started. I was listening to the audio book. Every single sentence of dialogue ended with "Jesse said" or "Jenn said." I found my mind wandering trying to substitute other words for "said"- "Jesse replied" perhaps, or "stated", or let us figure out who's speaking without telling us. Give the reader some credit. Even questions ended in "Jesse said" where he could have at least offered us "Jesse asked, inquired," ..." I don't know who dunnit, and I don't care. This book should never have gotten past the editors.
