Different is a good way to describe it. The writing style is not the norm, which made it a little harder to get into. I didn't dislike it, it just took longer than usual. The concept of the book was good, but the execution wasn't.
The story itself gets confusing in a lot of points. I feel the writer could have made it much better if they'd gone back and tied some parts together or expanded more. I understand it was written as a memoir and it is supposed to match with the narrator, but there were many times were I found myself raising my eyebrow and wondering what the hell was going on.
The viewpoints expressed in it don't affect this review, and I understand their necessity with the characters. My issue was that there were times where I found myself confused. This would take me out of the book, and I would flip back thinking I'd missed something - which wasn't the case.
I found the characters interesting. They definitely held my interest and kept me reading. I wanted to see how things turned out, because I found myself intrigued by them. I can't say that I understood or knew where they were coming from, but their actions made sense. I didn't feel like they were fake.
That being said, it was interesting. It is worth reading if you're looking for an original story. With work, it has potential.
