From the beginning this story line intrigued me. Texas, being the only state that can legally secede, actually doing so made me want to delve into the how's and why's of their choice to do so. The narrators voice, while being suited to perhaps some other genre, absolutely ruins this book. The hesitant way in which the main character spoke and his high-pitched voice made him seem like a prepubescent teen working in a man's world. As a matter of fact all the characters voices were this way. Additionally the echo which indicated an internal thought of the main character, sounded almost like the character was schizophrenic. And the way the chapters segued with some sort of middle eastern guitar music sounding very loudly not only startled me but did not fit in at all with a story set in Texas/Louisiana. The main characters history and current profession not to mention the fact he was from Texas, would lend itself to a slow cadence and drawl, perhaps a gravelly sounding voice. Matthew McConaughey, Sam Elliot, etc. would have been perfect for this role. Instead every time he spoke I wanted to ask if he needed cheese to go with his whine.

Not sure some of the content was necessary. A bit darker than I thought was necessary, but an interesting read otherwise. Gave it four stars because it was different and well written. Again, the assassination attempt was a bit over the top and sort of distracted from the story.
