Book Review: I am so torn writing the review for this book right now, more so than I have ever been writing a review for a book. I did not finish this book, I just could not get into the book in the format that it was written in. However, I would like to comment on a few of the finer points of the book, hence the 3 rating instead of the 1 rating that usually accompanies not finished books.
The writing of this book if beautiful, it lulls you in and promises you amazing prose if you just keep reading. The book is almost poetic it has such beautiful writing. Another great thing accompanying this book was the professionalism of the author. He is super nice, courteous, and pretty dang cool. I think this book has wonderful potential and is absolutely great if you can get past the style, a lot of reviewers have and loved it. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
