X. by Matt Thompson

Cale is a young man who struggles with an unusual addiction and eventually it makes him realize what really matters to him. This is his narrative. It is often unreliable and unpredictable. He is occasionally delusional, and always over thinks. Reality is grounded in the footnotes that accompany his thoughts. It takes more than it should for Cale to come back to that reality. From Goodreads.

I like reading free books and mostly they are okay. I needed a book with title starting with X for a challenge and chose this. This is the worst book I have read in 2014. Cale's unusual addiction is masturbation so of course this is mentioned quite often in the book though luckily not in any great detail. Cale doesn't really care about anybody but himself. It was also a problem that 15% of this book was footnotes and these were important footnotes as it was part of the story. That just doesn't work well in e-book.
Not a book for me and I will not be reading more from this author. 

This book qualifies for:

CCC A-Z Book Titles 2014
You Read How Many Books? Reading Challenge 2014
Goodreads Reading Challenge 2014
