did not like it

I read this for SPFBO

It just wasn't good. Out of all the books I've read for this competition so far, this book by far stood out as a self-published book.

First off, I don't know whether it was a glitch with my Calibre, which I used to read the book, but the entire text was in italicized font. Ouch.

Secondly, the grammar and syntax was not good. It wasn't outrageously bad, but I could tell this book needed the touch by an editor. Sentences ran on, were chopped off, and had weird structures. I'm a grammar you-know-what and however minor the issues, it bothered me. The writing was just weird and did not flow well. The odd punctuation, along with other grammatical errors, only served to emphasize that this was an amateur work.

The setting was convoluted and didn't feel entirely realistic, more like a mishmash of other sci-fi spaghetti western universes. I got to 10% before DNFing, but it felt like a lot longer.
