    This novel is molasses slow and suffers from strange style choices, like the atrociously spelled chat logs The characters are somewhat appealing in their generic nature, but are still Mary Sues and Gary Stus The novel truly suffers from the insertion of Russinovich s racist and sexist views into the story Perhaps the worst quote is one page 255, which reads, In this time of exhibitionist tattoos and body piercing, with the supposed equality of the sexes, it seemed to Jeff that many women were This novel is molasses slow and suffers from strange style cho...
