"The first twenty pages were engaging. A lot os info given to get to know this character; TMI if you know what I mean. And around page 50 I'm getting tired of him and his egotism.

"This is to a book I may ever finish. It is one of the best books for learning how to write poetry. So I'm not quite sure how to fit it into this Goodreads format." Jun 12, 2015 05:25PM
