I think the marketing for this book is not as efficient as it could be. If you look it up on Goodreads or Amazon, the blurbs all make it seem as if this is one complete novel, when in fact it would have served the book better to publicize it as a collection of interconnected stories with the same protagonist in all of them.
Since I was expecting a coherent story, beginning, middle, and end, the first half of the book was in parts amusing and boring, since nothing really fit together. If I’d known they were all separate stories, maybe I would have read it more like a short story collection. It just felt incredibly disjointed to me. The writing itself is good and the characterizations for the most part are handled well, but the reader is left feeling with a hollowness while we are reading it which, at least, for me, does not make it one that I can recommend to other people. If taken by themselves a few of these chapters, or stories, are quite interesting, but as a whole, the book disappointed. It wasn’t horrible, but it wasn’t anything I’ll remember after a couple of months, either.
