did not like it
Read in September, 2003

I absolutely hated this book. The writing style was bizzarre and unreadable and the plot was no better. How this ever got published is beyond me. I would avoid this like the plague.

Jeremy Bray Its because you're ignorant to the writing style of an African american novel.

David Simonetti No. It is because the book stank. And it is you who is ignorant for making a comment so stunningly lacking in substance. You have no idea what I know and don't know and your presumptuous comment indicates as such

Brian Landes What's bizzare and unreadable about this novel? It has a very straightforward linear prose form. I'd barely classify this as unreadable.
