I found so much about The Fix unappealing, I am sorry to say. While this book may have received some rave reviews, I think it serves as a great example of how diverse readers' opinions will be for every book released.

Most disturbing are the broken, staccato sentences. The storyline itself is predictable, long and boring. The dialogue seems forced, and though the characters are well-planned, the rest of the novel could certainly use some work.

One reviewer of The Fix stated that it reads like it was written in a jail cell. I’d have to agree. Harsh, sharp language with a few curse words and the stiff, forced dialogue would seem to fit the scenario of that reviewer’s perception.

It was very difficult to come back to the storyline after a break from the reading process. I found myself bored and losing train of thought during this project – and that isn’t a good sign.

Basically, The Fix revolves around the relationships between two young men and one woman of questionable conscience and Russian mafia involvement. Nothing works out in the end except more disappointment – at least that was my experience.

To top off that disappointment, I did not see any comments on the website for the author or publisher, nor did I find any information on the book itself, regarding the recycling content of the book, and I also felt the cover design was lacking. However, if you enjoy long-winded tales involving gangsters, New York and Russian Mafia – The Fix might be for you.
