I rarely do not finish a book. And the few that I don't finish make me angry. I wanted to like this book - the underlying punk theme, I liked White Oleander. But I just couldn't get into this. It is slow, the narrative switches times in a distracting way. I found that I hated the characters and got to the point where I didn't even care what happened. I got about 2/3 through and then felt like it wasn't going to go anywhere so I skipped through looking for a word or sentence that would engage me and nothing did. So I tossed it aside and read something great instead. (Water For Elephants). Other books I didn't finish for similiar reasons: Juniper Burning and Bricklane.
