I would like to tell you I loved this book. It's full of dark humor, political parodies, crazy characters, infidelities, and the title character, a guy with anger management problems. It's an entertaining romp.
I had some problems that ended up distracting me from my enjoyment of the book. See if you can spot the common issue here:
"She says yeah, oh, yeah, but what she's thinks is if you want to make me happy"
"They eat salad, and chicken, and after: a desert of apple pie"
"Sees Nadine running...tennis trained legs carrying her swiftly toward the store, it's yellowish lights, it's perceived safety"
"He takes a last look at the Salton Sea, it's splendid isolation, its fragile beauty"
"probably can't fill out a Soduku puzzle"
"It occurs to him that this is could be the weapon used"
These are just a few examples of the errors that are throughout the text. I'd say the publisher (Europa Editions) only ran spell-check on this, except for the repeated references to the local lawman as "Sherriff".
I kept track of the "its/it's" errors until I hit 7, and then I gave up.
My temptation, after returning this book to the library, was to buy a copy, copyedit it, and send it to the publisher with an invoice.
So--if you can overlook rampant errors, you might enjoy this book. But to me, the annoyance was just too much.
