Anyone else unable to finish the book?

I could not, for the life of me, get through this book. I found the diary format contrived, and many tenses didn't seem to line up. Eric also didn't change much between the beginning and middle(as far as I read to) of the book. He always seemed calm and to know exactly what he was doing. Anyone else dislike the book?

I finished it but it was difficult. It was a tedious read that had so much going on that it was hard to focus on the main story. It doesn't help that I am not a fan of this particular genre.

In the case of good books, the point is not to see how many of them you can get through, but rather how many can get through to you." (Mortimer J. Adler)
