Blur - Steven James

It's still interesting, that's for sure. But I'm beginning to feel like the narration is a little juvenile for the subject matter--just the way things are repeated over and over again, and I feel like I'm getting based in the head with the idea that Daniel is supposed to be a total gentleman. How many times did it mention that he would protect Nicole no matter what when Ty and his friends were about to beat him up? ...A lot.


Anyway. I want to see where this goes. I think I've already guessed a twist, though, and if I'm right, it's pretty sad that I saw it coming so early.
