Reader's Discretion Advised

...this confuses me. So...it's like tumblr...for books?

Either way, I'm mainly on Goodreads. I do occasionally come here, and also do periodically import my shelves from GR here, but GR is a more sure bet for contacting me.

Collateral - Aleksandr Voinov,  Vashtan,  Gileonnen Weird. There were some technical issues I found with it, but other than that, I'm not entirely certain if I liked the story. Yeah, there were parts I liked and I'll readily admit that I liked the first-ish part better than towards the middle and later on (I think I especially didn't like the middle). It's weird because it starts off with a rather strong Iron Man voice (I've never seen Punisher, so I have no idea if Frank's acting "in character" or not), but then it starts deviating and starts moving towards...pedestrian m/m. At least, that's how it felt to me. (Somewhere towards the middle, my "Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark" mental image of Iron Man got replaced with a generic, nondescript twink and I couldn't shake that despite the descriptions contrary to that. I want to say it's something to do with the characterization as it moved farther and farther away from canon, but it might be more than just that.)I also rather didn't like the ending scene. I thought the place it ended was rather incongruous with the overall tone. The parting shot from the Patrick dude made him almost seem like a sequel set-up, which was incredibly weird.All in all, I'd say it's not bad, but again, I'm not quite sure if I actually like the overall work.
