Concept good - writing meh
on 7 July 2014
I nearly gave up on this after the first few chapters as mainly centred around 4 mates getting high and making extremely crass and crude comments - even though they were all supposedly respectable men with wives and careers. Had just about decided this was a book aimed at teenage boys when the idea of the wish list kicked in and I got curious.
The only thing that kept me hooked until the end was wondering how it was all going to end. But I didn't like the pervert main character (Donovan Creed), I didn't get ANY of the jokes about Mr Pancake and some ads of some sort, I didn't like the flip way a woman's insanity was rushed over (won't say more as it's in the latter half) and I certainly didn't like the gratuitous violence or the extensive rape scene.
Someone mentioned it being humourous...I have to say if it was I didn't find it. Nothing funny about 2 men being forced into a cage to fight to the death, is there?
I've given it a 3 but that's because the idea of the Wish List and people not reading the Terms and Conditions was a really good one. But I doubt I'll read another Donovan Creed.
