DNF'ed this "Modern English Literature" touted as should be required in U.S. and U.K. English classes

Knut and the Free Kingdom - Mandy Baldwin

I got curious after Linda's post and had to try this one.


I think I should get extra credit for actually finishing the second sentence (shown below, scroll down in this post).  I admittedly didn't give it all the way through the third sentence.


The second sentence in two screenshots from my kindle:



  I reduced the text size I normally read to get it in two shots.

Yes, I post longwinded, convoluted things myself. But, I'm not publishing my stuff as a book on retail sites.  I'm the customer, not the author.


I got the vague impression (maybe just me) that it meant to be in the style of the Kingkiller Chronicles.    It's a short work at 76 pages if anyone lwants to read it.  Hmmm...if similar sentences throughout, that's probably only a few dozen paragraphs.

Returned the Kindle Unlimited borrow immediately.
