Great story!

Usually I can figure out where a story is going; however, this one kept surprising me. It was quick and good!

I did not enjoy this book at all. The narrator was completely unlikable and pompous. The author or narrator seemed to relish in only giving you partial facts as if holding back information would make the story more interesting . It did not work. The time frame kept jumping around. Something there were even flashbacks within flashbacks. I had to keep jumping back to figure out when he was in his story. I was hoping the end would make it worth the read, but the end was just poor. It really just ended, no character development, no one got what they deserved. Waste of time.
