Monster - Walter Dean Myers The fact that I made it to the end does not in anyway negate the fact that I abandoned the book about 50 pages in. I merely went through the motions because I was forced to read this for a class. The thing was, I wanted to like this book. The format of writing it like a movie script was well done though the writing itself kinda stunk. However, the main character was not only completely unsympathetic in my opinion but his POV did absolutely nothing for this book. Since it is his story...yeah the book was done before it begun in my mind.
