    "I had this story recommended to me by several people, so I took a look. I was not a fan, I have to admit. The cover copy says it's a dark comedy, but really it's just a standard edgy story that tries really hard to be extra edgy at all times. I didn't like the main character, or the author's style in how the story was presented to the reader. It feels like the only real card the author had to play was the gender orientation of the character; like that was supposed to be enough to excuse the rest of the faults simply because it was a very modern casting choice."
