Review: So I have finally found the time to finish this book. First I would like to say that this is one of the most original and interesting stories I have read in such a long time. The writing is crisp and to the point, there’s no extraneous words, everything serves a purpose. I specifically loved the quotes at the beginnings of each chapter. But on to the meat and potatoes so to speak.
Jesse is the reluctant hero, and I love that he is flawed. I think the excitement the writer shows in his writing comes through and makes the story that much better. The story is strong and well written, and I loved it.
