I could only listen to a few minutes of this book. Every single sentence was weighed down with negatives -- everything described is awful, ugly, depressing, etc. Every human activity is motivated by greed, malice, etc. Grim and depressing books don't bother me -- in fact, I tend to enjoy a dark vision of the world. But even the most bleak novels are written with a variation in sentence structure. Even Poe didn't ladle on the negative adjectives in EVERY single sentence. There is a way to convey a melancholy or dark mood without resorting to that. The book just sounds as though it was written by a novice. Even Kirby Heyborne, who I loved in "Gone Girl," seemed crushed under the prose.
