did not like it

I was so excited that the publisher allowed me to review this book through Netgalley. As I got into the book, my excitement turned into disappointment. What could have been written as a really cool story (as the storyline was really interesting) almost came off as disorganized and wandering to where it was difficult to follow at times. There is also a underlying tone to the book which comes off periodically as being elitist. I was so disappointed with the premise of this book, it could have been such a winner, imo, but ended up coming off to the point of being a "flop"

I have to say that if I didn't make the commitment to Bloomsbury books or had I purchased the book, it would have been returned.

Kathleen Valentine That sounds good!

Naomi Blackburn It isn't...very dry. The author is coming off as really elitist/blowhardish, so far. I think I am about 100 pages in.

Kathleen Valentine Oh.... too bad. **crosses it off list**

Naomi Blackburn I about it..he had a really interesting concept for the book too. I am reviewing it for Netgalley so I need to finish it.
