So bad it made me laugh though, so there's that.
Rating: Two stars. Not because I enjoyed this book, mind you, but simply because it is not the absolute worse piece of literature out there. It had a plot and characters and dialogue, so it gets one point for actually being a book of fiction and the second star because it had correct grammar and a decent vocabulary.
I had several major issues with this book, and the first is that I sincerely think that this book was written as a kind of masturbatory tool for the author. I think he used it as an opportunity to show off, and put himself as the protagonist to somehow live out his dreams and delusions of being the greatest person on earth. The book is somewhat autobiographical, it seems. Malachi, the main character, stopped attending college two years into his acting degree, which the author did as well. Malachi feels like he is the smartest person in the world, the strongest, the manliest, the perfect person who always throws in the last word and can do no wrong. Malachi's best friend is even named after the author. Reading this book, it felt like the reader (despite being addressed through the fourth wall by the narrator) was not kept in mind at all and the author wrote solely what would gratify him.
Despite the grammar being correct, the writing style is horrendous. Each scene is a new chapter, and often a chapter would end at a point of tension and the next chapter would be the scene immediately continuing. Because of this, each chapter was incredibly short and I do not feel that this writing choice added anything of benefit to the book.Read more ›
Which is why this sort of... Came crashing down on my nerves.
My main concern is the lack of depth in the characters, they're just too good or too bad to be true. And the dialogue. I would have to read the same paragraph a few times over to figure out who is saying what, because not only is the dialogue all mashed together, but everybody speaks with the same voice and there are no personality or speech quirks to distinguish anybody apart from one another. And then the parenthesis and brackets! I understand writing style, but even Terry Pratchett utilizes asterisks and foot notes rather than halting the flow of his paragraphs, and Terry Pratchett this author is *not*.
I couldn't get through the whole thing and ended up tossing it away. Save yourself the eyestrain and the money, go buy icecream instead.

I gave this book one star because Amazon's rating system sadly doesn't allow a rating of zero stars. This book is terrible, in every way. Read morePublished on April 26, 2014 by Haribo Lector

So, at first, I thought this book was rubbish. Plot is absurd, protagonist is pure mary-sue, and dialogue is forced and unnatural. Read morePublished on March 25, 2014 by C. Agnew
