I was so excited when I found out I had won a copy of 12 from Goodreads. I find the Mayan culture fascinating and was looking forward to seeing how Oshins would weave mythology into his story. I found the beginning of the story confusing and a bit disconnected but kept on. I hoped that as the story played out, it would become less confusing but it didn't. I realize that some of my difficulties arose from the unique way that Goshins told the story. I found it hard to emphasize with the main character, Du and his personal struggle. During Du's quest, I didn't find myself caring if he succeeded. Perhaps if I read it a second time, it would make more sense. I don't think I will be doing so and definitely won't be looking for the sequel.
