2.0 out of 5 stars Just couldn't get into it, 23 Aug 2011
This review is from: The Lazarus Project (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'm not generally someone who gives up on a book. I tend to struggle on with even the most arduous tome to do the author justice; after all they have given their time and effort to write the thing so it is only right that expend a bit of effort reading their results. But, this book... I am sad to say this joins the short list of novels I have given up reading. I just couldn't get into the style, the tone of the book, the down-beat nature of the writing and, worst of all, I just couldn't feel any connection to anything or anyone I read about. Reading the book felt like a trudging effort rather than the chance to enjoy some brain-expanding escapism. There seem to be mixed reviews of this book, so I am sure it works for some people, but not for me this time.
