did not like it
bookshelves: horror

One of the worst books I've gone to the trouble of actually finishing...mostly because I couldn't quite believe how wretched it was. Every time you think the plot can't get any more contrived, the protagonist more obnoxious, deeper it goes, like some urban-paranormal train-wreck.

The main character is the second worst Mary-Sue in modern letters. We are to believe this drug-addled, morally vapid, sex-driven liesure-suited bargain-basement lothario keeps running into the Great Minds of history (Mozart, Einstein, et. al.) and that every time he does, they are astonished and humbled to have met *him*!

This is a foul book. Other books nearby on the shelf are made worse by mere proximity to this turkey. It maketh a blight upon the land.

Desiree Yeah, I've been trying to finish this book for YEARS, I can only take it in small doses. I WANT to like it, but I just don't, yet it's still sitting by my bedside WAITING for me to pick it back up!
