I really like your review. You gave a really good description of what the book is about. I really like the story's premise. I'm going to put this on my to read list.

Why would an inmate on death row have a pet turtle? :shock:
Sorry, that just seems odd :lol:
If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them.

I enjoyed the sample of this book and your review explains a lot of the story.

I didn't like the drug references, being unfamiliar with the drug scene I didn't quite get the references. Otherwise this seems like a good book!

I read both reviews and the positive review may have been more positive than the negative review. With both reviews in mind, I definitely want to see a sample of the book so I can make a decision based on my own experience. Reading can be a very personal thing and it was interesting to see the two differing reviews. Thanks to both reviewers.

After reading the mixed reviews I gave the sample a try. I liked the characters and just from the one and a half chapters I have read, I will read the rest. Thanks for the insight.
