This is the style of the book. This is an approximation of the style of the book in this review. * At first, this style may drive you crazy. This style may drive you crazy especially if you are an English teacher who is, perhaps unfairly, predisposed to dislike "you" and sentences that begin with "this is." You may think that you don't like the book, because this style is driving you crazy. But then, this style just might begin to grow on you. And you might realize, this style is propulsive, and it is clever. This style is clever because it mimics the strokes of a swimmer, and it works because it keeps pace perfectly. This is a book whose story doesn't work without the style.
In the end, this is a book worth reading. This is a book unlike other books. This is the end of the review. This is a TLC Book Tour, and this is a link to see other reviews.
