This is an unusual novel in number of ways - which would normally be a good thing. It is told with a mixture of first, second and third person, with both the present and past tense, which was not to my taste as I thought it was trying just a bit too hard.
But it is not the narration style that turned me off this book, it was the darkness of the story. Perhaps I'm being oversensitive because the scenes we no more gory than expected. It was the characters that, while interesting, were too damaged for me enjoy spending any time with. I thought about giving up several times, and now wish I had.
It is hard one to score - I regret buying it - but maybe that is because it is very good at what it is trying to do.
