did not like it
bookshelves: could-not-finish

Actually, this one I couldn’t finish. After about 100 pages, I was so bored. Maybe it was the gambling theme. Maybe it was the dramatic event that takes place by page 31, which is left without much explanation as to what happened in the aftermath. It’s just annoying to suspend an event like that and jump ahead in time—I call this a cheap way to create suspense for rather dull characters.

I’m sure I should like this author, everyone says he’s great! But not this time.
