Half Asleep in Frog Pajamas by Tom Robbins

Half Asleep in Frog Pajamas by Tom Robbins
When the stock market crashes on the Thursday before Easter, you – an ambitious, though ineffectual and not entirely ethical stockbroker – are facing the Weekend From Hell. Jerked from one trial and revelation to another, by the time it is over, the path of your destiny has been knocked askew.

Well, I’ve tried reading Half Asleep In Frog Pyjamas, but I’m afraid I just can’t get into it. It’s the writing style I can’t get on with – it almost feels like I’m reading a “Choose Your Own Adventure” book as “You” are the protagonist – it’s all “You do this” and “You go there”, despite the fact that we’ve been given a character name and discription. I just can’t get on with it at all. Sorry, but a few chapters in and it’s annoying me so much that I’ve had to put it down. Perhaps I’ll return to it some other time, but I can’t see it happening really.
