This author employs some stylistic affectations ranging from the merely distracting to the downright annoying. The worst of these quirks is the frequent interruptions from the main character (narrator) so he can tell you about his writing process. These constant shifts made it impossible for me to follow the thread of the narrative.I was also put off by the excessive use of foul language. I'm not bothered by it in small doses, but this book is loaded with f-bombs, and the word "asshole" is used NINE times on page 31. Profanity is a crutch for crippled minds, and for those who need to expand their vocabulary.
