did not like it
bookshelves: 2012, library-books
Read in May, 2012

I read over 50 pages and got through the first section on “Hector” and into the second but just could not read any further. (AND I hardly ever do this - usually I slug along and appreciate what is there but couldn't do it this time). I didn’t care for the writing style or the crude use of continual swear words and graphic sex scenes. None of the characters were likeable. I have better things to do with my time. This rates a big Zero from me and I don't consider myself to be a nasty critic - I love to read but this just wasn't for me :(
