Maybe it is just the mood I have been in this summer, but this is another abandoned book. I tried, I really tried but I just completely lost interest.

For one thing, it tries too hard to be "catchy" or something. It is told entirely in flashbacks, as a single day rolls along. And interesting idea, to be sure, but layered on top of that is a first person, almost stream of consciousness writing style that wants to pull you into the store as it slowly (ever ever so slowly) gets unfolded.

But I didn't care enough about the players to be all that interested in the story. This is one book that, perhaps given the right frame of mind, I could find interesting. But for right now, I gave up after about 75 pages.
