The ghetto type dialect, that pervades, "i'n't it', meaning isn't it, and 'summick' meaning something takes real getting used to and does not enhance the story.
George can pull descriptives together and does so through out this novel although I was so annoyed with the story itself that I did not appreciate the writing. As on pg 48, " ..one of those moments in which things get glossed over, things get addressed or things get altogether ignored." Or page 380 about anxiety and its effect, "..Anxiety prevents you from working, but the only way to relieve the anxiety is by doing what it prevents you from doing: working........Others avoid, seeking an external relief for the anxiety, which tempers it only moderately....."
I give this a meager 2 stars, I should not have bothered to read the entire novel but I did.
