did not like it

Ack! I can't believe how many people actually liked this book. It was so poorly written, I had a hard time convincing myself to finish it. Several hours of my life I will never get back. Though the premise is interesting, that's where the creativity ends. Set in a world where the technology exists to allow an embryo to inhabit an artificial body so it can experience the world prior to birth, there are still Polaroid photos and twitter? Though personality traits can be removed from one's brain, one character suffers from ADD so traumatically that he is nearly dysfunctional? The writing is choppy, overtly sexual themes run rampant for no apparent reason, and I have no idea what the author is trying to say. But above all else, if this is the quality of writing that is getting past even the most scant of editorial reviews for e-release, it is a sad day for readers everywhere.

Megan I agree completely. The writing is so terrible, I feel like I lost IQ points just struggling through. And there was nothing about the plot to redeem the horrible prose.
