Couldn't Even Finish It

I really wanted to love this one, but I was wary of it from the beginning. It was a deviation from the genres I typically read, which may have been why this failed so badly. I wasn't invested in it at all, and I found myself reading just to read, not because I was actually enjoying the content.

I think my main problem with this has to be the choppiness. There was no flow in between events, stuff just happened. From the very first page, stuff is happening with very little explanation. I never connected with the plot, and I barely understood what was even happening.

This is a minor spoiler, but considering it was part of the reason I gave up on this, I feel like it has to be mentioned. Around 50 pages in, there's already a detailed incestuous coupling. I didn't care what part this had to play with the rest of the story, it wasn't something I was interested in reading more of.

This was my first book in this series, and considering I couldn't even get through it, I don't think I'll be picking up the rest.
