Reading progress update: I've read 100%.

Stinger - Robert R. McCammon

Sorry. I could not get into this. Way too many characters and the writing was so so. I found myself bored and wanting it to end. I was meh towards the alien Daufin and just wanted Stinger to die already since he got tedious as anything. 

 

The main plot about a dying town that gets rocked by an alien invasion should have been good. Instead I found myself wishing I had read something else. I just didn't feel a sense of urgency or worry for what I thought as of the main characters.

 

Also the ending with Ray being obsessed with breasts..that's a no. It was off-putting and ruined the tone of what came before. We get it, Ray is oversexed. I wanted him thumped since I was sick of reading about it.
