EXTREMELY unique premise that is well written (though scattered at times) and has interesting concept/characters. Overall, this is a mostly enjoyable read but it took a reeeaaalllyyy long time to end and when it did I just stared at the ereader for a long while. It didn't bog down at any one place, it was just a steady March to Please Dear Lord Make It End. I won't say that I wish for my time back BUT when I find myself skipping ahead repeatedly to see when it will all be over....that's usually a bad sign. Harry August was a likeable character and the concept/execution of the book were done so well it made the sloshing worthwhile.
