it was ok
bookshelves: 2011-reads
Read in January, 2011

I am honestly surprised to hear that this author's first novel won so many awards.I am not trying to be overtly critical, but the level of detail that he includes about minor plot details really overwhelms and bogs down the story. And reading the afterword, he apparently names characters after everyone he knows. Not that is in and of itself a bad thing - but also distracting, it feels like he's trying too hard to develop the characters.

On the plus side, I think the story would be good if the details could be more subtle. This was a Kindle freebie so at least I'm not out any money :)
