I really wanted to like this book. In the end it was just ok and I had to force myself to finish it.
I had two major issues and that is Pete and Jack I could not really figure out why I should care or rather why they are working together. It is one thing to have a childhood crush but really why the verbal abuse as adults? It is supposed to be banter but personally it felt like torture. Furthermore Jack is a junkie who is for the most part clean in about 24 hours...really? Come on and then his actions just seemed like he as a angry man who used drugs as an excuse to be bitter.
That aside I hated the "British English" I am American and I have only been to London a few times but I have never heard slang used like that before. It was very distracting. By the time I got to the end I just did not care. Sadly I got book one and two together, not sure if I should torture myself and see if the second is better than the first or if I should just cut my losses.
