The Lies of Locke Lamora - Scott Lynch This author is trying way too hard to make his characters "cool"--what with the stupid banter, the out-of-place swearing (it reads just like an 11-year-old trying to sound cool) and the over-the-top feats. Add to that the most important female character (and there aren't very many of them) getting killed in an awful way in order to piss the male characters off. I thought widely respected authors didn't put women in refrigerators anymore, but I guess I was wrong. Quit about 2/3 of the way through and have no intention of picking it back up.
