Surface in Heaven

I recieved this book from Librarything's giveaway program. I was looking forward to reading it, since it sounded interesting.
This is why self-publishing is such a problem. This book would have fared much better after rigorous editing sessions, but as it is, it reads like an amateur try at the big-bad-world of writing. The grammatical mistakes are astounding, the lack of commas, frightening. If I had a dollar for every adverb in this book...
I wish, as an aspiring author, I could recommed this book. I admire self-publishers for their guts and attitude, but when a story is as poorly constructed as this, I cannot, in all honesty, encourage anyone to sit through it.
There's nothing else I can say about it except: don't waste your money.
