I Expected Better...


I guess I expected more from the author of the brilliant The Queen's Gambit and Mockingbird - both were 5-star reads for me. This one... not so much. Nearly a 2-star read but Tevis is an excellent writer and he almost had me buying into this a few times. But the ridiculous protagonist just destroyed my enjoyment. Still, I guess I have to give him 3 stars for the effort.
