Give a bloke some credit

what can I say. terrible, I can't believe the author would cast such a stereotypical dopey bloke as the main character. I will stay clear of Evan in future

Great potential with lame and ridiculous plots

Disappointed in this book. I found myself eye rolling and thinking that the author must have been in a hurry to complete. He could have done better - the worst if his books that I have read, yet still able to grab interest wondering how it was going to unfold.

Needs editing

This story could have held my interest more if it hadn’t gotten so hung up in areas where characters spoke in circles. Made me feel as if the author was deliberately trying to extend the length of the book. The narrator, whom I usually enjoy and have purchased certain audiobooks simply to hear his voice, had quite a few stumbles through this one. He had huge long pauses where none should have been and shifted unexpectedly to parts that should have been given a bit. Overall the story isn’t bad but the lead character comes off as extremely naive and frustratingly dim at times.
