it was ok
bookshelves: dumped

I bought this book because it was on the "If you liked ... you'd like this" feature at Amazon. The book that got me there was Clockers by Richard Price (awesome book!) so I was psyched.

I managed a few chapters and gave up on it. I can't get a feel for the characters, time, or place. It's jerky, disjointed, unfocused, and hard to read.

If someone tells me it's worth it and to try again, I will.

Graceann You won't hear it from me. I didn't even manage a chapter before I gave up on it.

message 2: by Pam (new) - rated it 2 stars

Pam Cool. Then I won't. :-)

Jonesmikey You will from me, though. I absolutely love this book and I am going to check out the rest of the quartet.

Adrienne Gave it over 100 pages and gave up with the same feelings so you did the right thing
