This author writes really bad dialogue. If his intent was to write at the elementary school level, then he accomplished that goal. I think the story line has some merit but the writing is down right horrible! It’s very childish and simple.
The author is also obsessed with numbers. It seems as though you have to have an accounting degree to read his novels. Or if you are good at taking inventories, then this kind of writing will really appeal to you.
Read something else if you don’t feel like wasting your time!
