bookshelves: did-not-finish

Really odd. We meet the protagonist when he's 16, though he acts more like 10 years old, giggling at his abusive boyfriend's antics. Then we re-meet him at age 21, where he acts more like an immature giddy 16 year old. Then he is kidnapped, and 1) he thinks to himself they might as kill his lover and parents because they'll be so sad without him, therefore better off dead, and 2) the other kidnapped slaves have to patiently explain that "Masters" tell them what to do and no, they don't have consent. I understand needing time to adjust, or rebelling, but it was like he couldn't grasp the concepts. Very odd, and also disturbing, like reading about a child, which is why I have to stop reading regardless of the stated age.
