did not like it
bookshelves: adult-fiction

I don't think it is much of a surprise that I'm not very impressed with modern adult literature. So much of the writing and themes are exactly the same. I get tired of the swearing, sex, graphic descriptions of immoral things, drinking, smoking, affairs, blah. This story could have been absolutely fascinating and terrifyingly gripping. The story line was good. But I would NEVER recommend this book to friends because of the terrible swearing and other immoral material. I skimmed through way too much of it and in the end, wish I had opted to skip it all together. I wish some of these authors were creative enough to write a story for grown-ups that could stand on the merits of good morals and celebrate the beauty in life instead of trying to sell books with the same "tricks".
