Eh. Not a total waste of time, considering I did go ahead and finish it, in hopes that perhaps I'd find a good plot twist somewhere in there. Unfortunately, it instead followed a pretty predictable, formulaic path. A very loooooong path. A path that ultimately had absolutely nothing to do with the title of the book.
One thing I found to be particularly distracting throughout this book was the constant, and often random, use of non-contractions (for lack of a better word) in the characters' conversations. For example: "If you do not do what I tell you, I am going to shoot." Quite often it would happen that, for instance, the first part of that sentence did actually contain the contraction form, but the 2nd half of the sentence did not.
The first few times I noticed this inconsistent non-contraction usage, I thought perhaps the author was using it for effect, to convey a more dramatic delivery of the line or something. But when it continued throughout the entire book, with its usage being so very random, and inexplicably mixed in with contractions, it simply became an annoyance and a distraction.
I can only assume that the writer was allowing spell-check to do much of the editing. Especially since there was also the occasional mis-spelled word, or incorrect form/usage of a word, like what happens when I voice-text and my phone misinterprets what I actually said.
Sorry for the rambling review, but it just seems to me that if someone is going to go to all the trouble to write a long, convoluted, rambling story, they should at least also make an attempt at realistic dialogue, (or do more careful editing).
Lastly, to be clear, this book is definitely NOT the only ebook that I find this phenomenon. In fact, pretty much every ebook I read, except for those by the familiar and/or well known authors, includes more than an average amount of editing oversights. Guess it just comes with the territory these days.
