More Literature! But this was kinda ugly. Yes, it's very well written. But it pretty much doomsday all over it from the beginning. Reading it, you know it's not going to end well and, well, it doesn't. Extermely engaging characters incapable of getting out of their own way. At times, the loserness of the parties involved feels overdone, particularly the cop. Stressful, depressing, ugly. Yikes, these are the types of books I avoid. Last one of these for awhile. I needed Lithium just to finish it. Bring on Zombies vs. Unicorns for crying out loud.
