The November Criminals - Sam Munson I did not like this book much at all. I'm having a hard time thinking of a single redeemable aspect of it. I could not relate to Addison Schacht at all. This isn't usually a problem, but in this case the dissociation was so huge I sometimes had no idea what he was talking about.
I found the writing annoying: Things that should have been one sentence were broken up into two or three; far too many italics; every few sentences was ended with something along the lines of "or something." That may be a realistic representation of how people my age write, I don't know, but it's annoying. It wasn't necessarily badly written, just not to my taste.
He occasionally had some interesting things to say, but not often enough to keep me interested in the book.
I'm sure someone who likes this genre could enjoy this book. But I generally don't, and I didn't.
