I have a strong feeling this book was not for me. I am always looking forward to books that take place outside of the beaten tracks (like US/UK/Sweden), so I was interested to see Warsaw for a change. Unfortunately, I hardly felt like the setting added anything new to the story. This could have taken place anywhere.
It focuses on a rather successful coke dealer and his troubles over a period of one week. I didn’t like him at all, and it seemed a rather odd choice for a first person, and it was confusing at times since the main character is hardly a good narrator. Besides the dealing of dealers and gangsters between themselves, they did not keep me interested over the entirety of the novel.
Not for me.
Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
