Yeah more like worst book ever.
Sorry Doug Copeland. It's hard for me to write mean things about his writing because he is somewhat of a local hero novelist. Buuuut you know what? This book was terrible.
It's ... it's like a nice guy tried really hard to write a dickhead character and fell very very far from the mark. Also it's a Canadian man trying to write in a British accent (?). It all felt really forced. And the main character was meant to be unlikable, I get that. It's just ... there's racism and sexism and Anti-Americanism and all sorts of isms just thrown out there ... no depth ... stilted dialogue ... blah.
I quit after forcing myself to read 1/3 of this atrocity. 1/10, do not bother.
