Did you finish: No
Were you disappointed with the book at all: The graphic novel inserts and the alternate visions of Locke as a crime fighting super hero detracts from the plot and makes it difficult to read. Locke's younger brother suffers from his anger issues. Locke's inability to change even for the brother he loves has some reality to it, but it makes it hard to read.
Cover: The cover has potential, it clearly demonstrates the anger Locke has and his tough attitude.
