The synopsis was decent, the cover was decent, so I just grabbed it without reading the sample pages... that'll teach me.
The beginning is so jumpy and confusing - I gave up at the end of chapter 2. There's some good ideas and several good lines, but they just don't fix the rest of it. Maybe I'm old fashioned, but I figure I should at least have an idea of backstory by the 3rd chapter.
The 2 characters I've met so far, Carl and Jesse, also both seem bi-polar. Carl is totally emotionally detached one minute, next minute he's feedin Jesse and actin like he needs to protect her. Then Jesse, cursing at Carl and screaming she's no ghetto whore right after she offered to screw him for saving her.
Just too jumbly and confused for me, sorry.
