Review--The Talk Show by Joe Wenke

The Talk Show a NovelThe Talk Show a Novel by Joe Wenke
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

After reading this book for a week and only making it to 25% of the way through, I have decided to give it a rest for now.  Reasons I could not finish this book:

1. The Language--While I am not offended by foul language, dropping the 'F' bomb 10+ times in the first 2% of the book is a bit extreme.  I did a search for the word on the Kindle and found out it appears over 100 times throughout.

2. The story is moving way too slowly for me.  At 12% there is a shooting and at this point I still don't know what happened to the victims. But, we've met a few strippers and a transgender priest who also babysits, and a crazy copy named Germany(at least I think he's a cop, I was quite confused when he entered the story).

3. Finally, it's not holding my interest.  Every time I start reading, I start to fall asleep.

When I first read the synopsis for this book, I was excited about it, but it fell short of my expectations.

**I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.**
