    I am reading Immanue’s Veins. I have a problem with the authors usage of certain phrases that I seriously doubt would have been spoken by 18th century Russians. “Keep your pit bull on a leash,” and “don’t be a party pooper.” I am sure there will be more but I am only 135 pages into the novel and fully intend to complete it.
    I have found other instances when it was difficult to determine which character was speaking to whom when there was dialogue going on.
    Lastly, the comments in the Readers Speak Out section which were included in the jacket of the book, highly exaggerate any type of possible catharsis which seems to be suggested. Some of these folks claim that this book changed their lives. Really? In what way?
    This is one of the worst books that I am actually going to read to the end. Expecting it to get better but there is not enough of it left to read for that hope to become a reality. I am really sorry I wasted nearly $30. on this book and I think Mr. Dekker should double my refund for wasting my time and money.
