review 1: A hint to the reader: The meaningless quotes at the top of each chapter is from the person who "writes" the chapter. Because I didn't figure this out until nearly half way through, I spent 20 percent of the time not knowing who each chapter was about. As it was, I spent 50 percent of the time failing to figure out what was going on in the story. And I still don't know what happened to one of the two main characters. The author writes brilliantly. He'll be fine when he learns how to organize and help the reader. Otherwise the writing is grossly chaotic.

What a great read. I was engaged and interested the entire book, and deeply affected by the ending.

Hard work to read. So I quit in favor of something less challenging.
