I like almost everything I read, and I did not like this

This wasn't a collection of stories, it was basically just one story told slightly differently many times. At least that is what it felt like by the end. I didn't count how many times the word 'banal' was used, I only know it was painfully overused. Please buy a thesaurus if you're going to continue writing.

Terrible language. Pathetic

It would be nice to actually get something from this writer without the vulgar language and every paragraph to try to make a point. He's a good enough writer, to leave out that and still get his point across. That is too bad
