ARC GIVEAWAY Honest review I made it through the first few pages, and was turned off by the prose style and the amount of cursing didn t feel genuine at all I think conceptually, this could be a cool story with a lot of incredibly current and politically relevant themes, but the stream of voice format was difficult to follow and at some points, lazy This deserves a rounded story with traditional prose.
