My rating: 3 Stars
My opinion: Although I had liked the general story of this book, I couldn't get past the writing style of this author. Although I do feel it was intentional to fit the storyline, I really couldn't get used to it. There was just something off to it that I can't at this immediate time put my finger on. Now, I have to admit that I have Goodreads friends who loved the writing style which was present in this book.
On a side note: Although I was approved for this title by Little Brown and Company, I found that I enjoyed the print version better. I started it on my ereader, but finished it with a library copy. I must admit that I didn't have as hard of a time with the writing style in the print version as I did in the ereader version.
