Insight - Santino Hassell DNF at 52%

You can't even imagine HOW much I wanted to BE ABLE to finish this book and give it a proper one star review. But I am not going to spend even one more second of my life on this book and on its shallow flat characters. They all sounded like they were 12 year old!
Terrible dialogues, not even a tiny flash of inspiration. Banal plot and amateurish writing.

I asked myself, what DID I MISS? Where come these 5 -4 stars reviews from? How can I be so blind to NOT see the reason for all this excitement?

At least I know now, that the author and I are not compatible and I'll try to avoid his book in the future.
