First Reads Flop - The Tribe of Tsulib by Helen Quinn

The Tribe of TsulibThe Tribe of Tsulib by Helen Quinn

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This story strives to portray the endless cycle of senseless violence that seems to plague humanity. While the concept is there, some of the writing isn't. The first portion is almost like reading the minutes from a board meeting - a bit too dry and not terribly interesting. The middle and end gets a little better but still has a haltingly unfamiliar style that hinders the flow of the story. It was weird how it switched back and forth from a third person to a first person present tense, and there were also a few grammatical errors. This book was only ok - decent concept, poor presentation.
