The biggest issue I had with this book was the 3rd person present tense. It was like being suspended in the moment, with no way of escaping. It was actually very uncomfortable for me as a reader, and I ended up skimming quite a bit because I couldn't handle it. Other than the tense and the mall scene (which I found confusing because I didn't know how it fit into the overall story), I think I likely would have enjoyed this book a lot more.Sex Magick was a free Kindle book I downloaded on September 15, 2012 for the Why Buy the Cow? reading challenge.
