Okay, so, trying to read this book is like a torture. I can't describe it. From the first line it was just... dull. Boring. And I wanted to die. I almost fell asleep while reading it, even though I wasn't tired. I got to page 100 until I finally gave up because there are so many good books to read and reading a bad book is just a waste of time. It's a good thing I didn't buy it because my money would just go to waste.
The main character, Ethan, really does sound like a middle-aged man. I couldn't even picture him as a 16-year-old teenager. I also didn't get a clear picture of him. All I knew was that his hair needs to be cut and that he's tall. I like to have a character in my head. It's easier for me to follow a storyline, to imagine everything that's going on because when I have unclear, blurry face, it's not as enjoyable. I don't know, maybe he's described more as the story goes on, but I'm sure as hell not going to continue it to find out.
Like I said, it was incredibly boring. Writing style didn't captivate me at all and nothing caught my attention enough to raise my eyebrows and continue reading this book with more enthusiasm what I always look for in a book. I wouldn't recommend it, but if you like long, dull books, then this is a book for you.
