I liked the concept of this book. I liked the descriptions, the inner voice of the main character. I just wish I knew what the hell was going on in it. To me it reads as if the author had an extremely short attention span or was hoping the reader had. Descriptions of scenes involving the characters would just change to completely different scenes with out any rhyme or reason. It's almost as if the author wrote a paragraph, got distracted and then came back many hours later, having forgot what he had written, and continued on.

I wanted to like this book. (Strangely part of me still does). I just find the constant jumping about of the characters with out any attempt at linking scenes together, hard to follow. The plot is so hazy. I often re-read chapters because I thought I had some how skipped over a number of paragraphs and lost the storyline. Not so.

Read this book if you wish. Just be prepared to be confused and wondering why some extra time couldn't have been spent shaping a really good concept into a better story.

I did not like this book much at all. I'm having a hard time thinking of a single redeemable aspect of it. I could not relate to Addison Schacht at all. This isn't usually a problem, but in this case the dissociation was so huge I sometimes had no idea what he was talking about.
I found the writing annoying: Things that should have been one sentence were broken up into two or three; far too many italics; every few sentences was ended with something along the lines of "or something." That may be a realistic representation of how people my age write, I don't know, but it's annoying. It wasn't necessarily badly written, just not to my taste.
He occasionally had some interesting things to say, but not often enough to keep me interested in the book.
I'm sure someone who likes this genre could enjoy this book. But I generally don't, and I didn't.

Not sure how this ended up on my reading list, but I regret it. I had the Audible version, which was read by the author. Not good; terrible in fact. I'm terrible at quitting on a story, but I'm not sure I'll finish this, though I am over half way through.

The story itself isn't that great, either. A high school student gets consumed by his search into a classmates murder. I suppose the author does a decent job of writing the story in the high schooler's voice, but I actually think that is a detriment to the story. Who really wants to read/listen to a 17 year old go on and on about his life?… (lisätietoja)
