Alright, I told you all that I would write a full review of Dear Mr. M when I finished it, so here it is.
This book was insufferably boring. There was a twist at the end, but nothing about this book was fast-paced. Nothing told me to keep reading, except for the fact that I hate to not finish a book. Mr. M is written from several perspectives, but never does the story really clarify who is telling the story; you just have to kind of figure it out several pages into each chapter. The timeline switches back and forth, so you never really have a clue what's going on. I wanted to like this book. I really did. But I couldn't.
The story is focused around an author (Mr. M) and a story he wrote about a teenage couple who allegedly murders their teacher. I can't really get into more depth than that without spoiling anything.
Anyways, the plot was fine. If the story was re-written using the same plot, but a different format, this could have been a great book. But unfortunately, it was written the way that it was written, which was confusing and slow-paced and boring.
I would not recommend this book.
