"I initially thought this was going to be sketchy YA fic, but not YA & for 240 pages it's got some heft. I'm not totally into the premise (the man scribing it, etc.), but the story itself is really good & an eye opener. If you're an Outlander fan, try this as a side read after book 3. It's 100 yrs earlier and Barbados vs. Jamaica, but fits well as a tie in to history surrounding slavery." 16 hours, 33 min ago

"I was just bitching to myself: are we EVER coming back around to Brianna, Jem and what not? And a chapter later, there they are. Finally! Don't get me wrong - I was really enjoying the Ian/William/Denny storylines and could have enjoyed the whole book following them, but when I was left hanging AGAIN (book 7...now book 8) with Jem and the Cool Kids it was feeling a little frustrating!" 16 hours, 40 min ago

For the most part, I love his writing. It's a bit like...well, Deadwood with Princess Bride swirled in. If that's confusing, think of dirty gritty mud pie ice cream with a swirl of raspberry and vanilla and there you go.

The first few chapters, I was irritated and feeling like I wasn't going to get through the book, much less enjoy it. The portrayal of the kindie moms is satirical and deliberately superficial, and even knowing it is humorous, it was aggravating.
