Wow. This is bad.

Wow. This book is BAD.
It might be one of the worst novels I’ve ever read.
I was browsing through the bookstore looking to pick up a few new reads and grabbed this one. Sounded interesting. I have no clue who Logic is so I picked this one based solely on the synopsis written on the back of the book.
I read the whole book pretty quickly, so it is an “easy read” and the issue isn’t necessarily with the basic idea behind the book, the issue is that the writing is HORRIBLE. It reads as though a 6th grader wrote it. I was cringing at almost every line throughout the entire book. I’d love to leave some examples but I’d have to just copy and paste the entire book here. Just trust me- it’s bad to the point of being embarrassing. I’m no literary snob either, I’ve read a LOT of books in my life and can appreciate a book that is easy to read (I prefer them!) but this is just ridiculous.
The characters have no depth. You don’t care about or relate to any of them because all you know about them is they are “hot” or “sweet” or a “kind of dumb-looking like a bimbo who gets by on her looks- but she was intelligent. Just naive-seeming”. Yes, that’s an actual description from this book.
And can someone who’s finished this please explain to me if we are supposed to have the “twist” to this train wreck figured out immediately?! Because this was all very predictable and it was almost laughable reading the author attempting to “hint” the twist.
When I finished this and checked amazon and see hundreds and hundreds of 5 star reviews the only thing I can assume is they are fans of his? I mean, I know everyone can have an opinion of a story but this book is just so terribly written that it doesn’t matter what the hell the story is. The writing is bad, and I don’t think that’s an opinion, it’s a fact!
At least when you get to the acknowledgements it all does make a little more sense. The author basically says he never read a novel in his life, then “binge-read novels for a week” in his 20s and decided “I’m gonna write a book!”.
Thank god for him he’s famous enough now for people to pacify whatever he randomly decides to do because that’s the only way this garbage would be published.
P.s. I’ve ready hundreds of books and never in my life written a review of one.
This was that bad.
