did not like it
Read in November, 2009

A friend described the authorship as 'ham-fisted' and I agree - I could hardly stand to read each successive chapter being that the author telecasts what's going to happen in each alternative/alternating chapter. Basically, read a chapter, guess what the opposite world would look like, and you've pretty much got the idea here. You like tea in chapter 2 then you're going to hate it in chapter 3. Like boring sex in chapter 4? Well, then you're going to despise it in chapter 5. You'll get more enjoyment out of reading every-other chapter than trying to read straight through. Stay away.
