Not til the middle
It was hard for me to get into this book. I didn't get into it til the middle. The writing style was pretty good. All in all the book was pretty good. You just gotta be ready to get into becuase it won't happen right away.. so take your time and enjoy.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Beautiful writing, but the storytelling...
Beautiful style of writing that touches the emotions many of us feel. However, as brilliant as Mr. Johnson's prose is, the story in Drop left me feeling empty and frustrated. While I understood the poetic nature of the plot, it was delivered unevenly and unrealistically. And, there had to be a better way for the author to illustrate his hero's ultimate realization than the contrived and 'convenient' final scene. Read it if you must, but do so for the remarkable use of language, and not the disappointing story.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
