It's baffling how this book has garnered such glowing reviews. It's an overhyped and overrated mess in which the author displays no storytelling ability whatsoever. All the 'innit' stuff is fine but needs to be backed up by some sense of plot or characterisation which is missing throughout.
Eventually, we do have signs of a book emerging about 200 pages in but by that time I was ready to chuck it across the room because it had been one of the most boring, tedious reads I'd had to suffer for a long time. We know Asian youth talk like this but so what? There has to be an interesting story to keep us engaged, but this book doesn't provide one. Avoid at all costs.
