    PDF/EPUB W.M. Akers í Westside eBook ↠ í westside epub, Westside Kindle I hurled my filthy slip down the hallway to enjoy the cavelike air in stark naked splendor A flimsy mystery with all the pittfalls of a male author crafting an inauthentic female protagonist Akers rarely provides a firm sense of place or atmosphere Some interesting ideas simmering below the surface that never fully materialize Westside is imaginative at its best; half baked and hollow at its worst

    PDF/EPUB W.M. Akers í Westside eBook ↠ í westside epub, Westside KindleI've been done this for about a week but I've been struggling with writing a review I know this was a fairly strong book The writing was good There were some fabulous smart lines both in dialogue and in the general text The world building was interesting and consistent The main character was odd; to me she read a bit like an anti hero with some of her actions but she was uirky and still sympathetic There were also some larger than life side characters It had an interesting meld of urban fantasy detective story and alternate history giving it uite an original feel All in all it was really well done and I feel like I should have liked it However I just couldn't really get into t
