This review is from: East of Nowhere (Paperback)
There is not a single likeable character in this book, and the main character is particularly odious, and seemingly hell-bent on self-destruction. He reacts to what could euphemistically be called "problems at home" by fleeing first to Barcelona then to Florida, encountering a succession of increasingly unpleasant characters. It's difficult to feel any sympathy for him, and if there was a love story in there somewhere (as suggested on the book's back cover) then it was so subtle that I think I missed it. It's a riveting ride, but the ending was somewhat weak and predictable. Not the best book I've read this year.
