I didn’t really care for this story for several reasons. First I thought there was way too much swearing you don’t need all that kind of language to get your point across.Although the writing was good considering. There was also a lot of racial slurs.The writing style was a little weird as far as I am concerned and for some reason I didn’t enjoy it. The story was also slow moving for the most part and I had a lot of problems keeping any interest in this story. I was disappointed with this story.
