I started this book and could not get through the first couple of chapters. Maybe it was me. Maybe it was the colloquialisms and lingo that seemed forced. Maybe I had just read something amazing and couldn't stomach reading something less than mediocre. Whatever.
Regardless, I read very little and what I did read--DNW. I think a book (especially one that is the beginning
of a series should immediately draw me in and make me want
to know more. I found myself wondering how many pages I had to endure to be finished, so I did something I usually never do--I flounced.
