I gave it 60 pages. It’s boring and repetitious. I only refrained from throwing it across the room after about the 50th repetition of “stutter-stop” because I wanted to resell the damn thing. After all the hype this book got, I’m really disappointed, not only in Amazon reviewers but the low-level sci fi writers who blurbed this piece of crap.
