California Bones

California Bones - Greg Van Eekhout I don't think I'm going to rate this, because although the premise was really interesting -- and the beginning of the book held a lot of promise -- there are several styles of fiction that just do not click with me, like portal fiction (random person is picked up, teleported to a new world, has to figure out how to stay alive), or false accusations. One of them is heist fiction. Yes, that means that out-of-this-world books like The Lies of Locke Lamora just do not rev my engine. This book would be very well recommended to anyone who enjoyed it. I read the first... oh, I dunno, quarter of the book before conking out. Kind of bummed -- I've been looking forward to this for a while, but that's the way the wind blows.
