Gregory Rothbard

Do you think that the curse words create authenticity? Or dirty the book with profanity? Can profane thoughts be caged and the character sill realistic?

Sarah I think it went with most of the tone of the book. It's like a friend telling you a story about this guy they know.
Julie Josephson I think it is a signature of the times, but a lot of it I thought, was not necessary
Charles Shepherd I think it gives it authenticity and deeper insight to the characters mindset.
