4 to 16 Characters

4 to 16 Characters - Kelly Hourihan Sigh. I was *really* enjoying this, up until about 21%, when the language started. I have a 3 F-bomb rule, and I even bent it a little, because I thought it might just be one scene/minor character, and I was dying to know what was going to happen. But: no. The hits just kept coming. :(

I did skip to the end to see if I could piece together what happened. It was that well-written. The plot was different, the characters sympathetic and colorful, and the voice fantastic. It's just a shame good writers feel they have to involve SO MUCH SWEARING for their fiction to seem "real."
