2012 eclectic reader challenge: february - mystery.
This was just not my cup of tea. The story relies heavily on the reader's ability to follow conversation that is highly colloquial and jargonistic. There is very little description, and often characters are introduced without preamble or explanation. I found this book like listening in to a phone conversation between two strangers without knowing any background (and not really caring).
I know it's a multi-award winning book, but honestly, it just didn't hold my attention, and reading it became a chore.
