Too Much, Too Wordy
on October 4, 2012
I abandoned this book after 30% (82 pages). It is very difficult to read due to the long winded sentences, overuse of adjectives, and simply too many words to describe something that would take just a few. I knew it was time to try something else when I reached a paragraph that ran almost 2 pages (on my Kindle with a small font!).
The story is intriguing because I've lived through the chemistry sets, early radios, and because I too had an early Atari computer. But, I couldn't muscle my way through the prose.
