Review #54: Stream Liner of the Lost Souls- Paul Leslie Griffiths

Title: Stream Liner of the Lost Souls
Author: Paul Leslie Griffiths
Pages: 173
Rating: 3/5 Stars
Review: I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
I feel really bad about my 3/5 star review because others loved this book, I just couldn't. It wasn't my thing at all. I really felt like the summary was for another book. I thought this book would be about teens fighting to get away from gangs and drugs on the street. I was so far off its not even funny. To start off, this book was not YA, maybe it could pass as NA but I would say adult. It was very gruesome and there was a lot of fighting, shootings and stabbings. I kept forgetting the characters because I found that there were so many of them. I really had no idea what was going on until the very end of the story. All I know was if someone's eyes flashed red they were evil. 
Character wise I really didn't feel a connection to any of them because like I said there were so many present. And when I finally knew who someone was they would die. 
This book just plain confused me. I really don't see there being a second one, unless its a "before" and tells what what happened with Lee and Vanessa's dad. I would recommend this to people who like Sci- Fi, not those looking for a nice book about teens getting their lives straight and getting off the street like I thought.
Thanks Paul for letting me read and review your book. It just wasn't for me.

I first started to write when the time in my life was at its lowest, I needed to come away from the real world and bury myself into a different world a world where I was in full control, who lived, who died, who laughed, who cried , I found that I prefer to be in a fantasy state than real life , I have not changed this thought ever since.
