No Such Person

This one was so hard to love. I love a good mystery but this one was just so hard! The plot was interesting but the way it was written (writing style) was too different from what I'm used to. It made the book very hard to get into.

I did like the chapters with Lander being in jail as I’ve been in jail and it’s not fun. They don't treat you like a human no matter your crime. You get treated like dirt for the most part.

The characters were pretty good and fully formed. The story was pretty fast paced as well.

The story had an interesting twist halfway through but that writing style just kinda killed it for me. It seems to be a hit or miss for most. And for me it was a miss. The author used characters names every other sentence which made the book hard to get through. So for me I would say to get this one from the library to check out the writing style first.
