Read in September, 2009

I was looking forward to this book. The premise is great and could be a wonderful story. The execution and writing however failed. I got 60 pages into this book. In the time I was told at least 30 times something was futuristic, I had a detailed description of a do laying down on a bed. I have always come from the belief show me with your words, let your words help me envision what you are trying to say. Do not pummel me to death with the details of meaningless things. Don't describe in details a history of a character that is meaningless. By page 50 I wanted to take a red pen to the entire book and send it back to the author with notes, by page 60 I was ready to throw it away, and I did. I have never before thrown a book away even one I didn't enjoy, but that is where this book belongs, in the trash so the author can start over with and idea of something that could be really amazing.
