Hard Acceleration

Hard Acceleration
David and Ta'Lishia Batts
David is sick of his dead-end life. So on impulse he hops on his bike and heads out of Kansas. Unfortunately  his emotions get the best of him and he ends up in a high speed chase with the police. When the chase ends up on tv David is offered a job racing a motorcycle. But this isn't just any job, he's going to be in the Transcontinental American Race. This is the story of not only his race, but how he finds himself and his purpose in life.

I wanted to like this book so badly. It has motorcycles and racing in it. That alone was enough to make me want to pick it up. But I wasn't a page in before I realized it was going to be a tough read. This book is in desperate need of some editing. I wasn't even finished with the first chapter before I found enough errors to fill a notebook page. The spelling, grammar, and syntax were a complete mess. Entire words were missing or replaced with something out of context. Here is an example - "He caught my attention as I asked him if he needed my help." I think with a really good editor, this could be a highly entertaining book, but the writing is so confusing that I had a really hard time getting through. I gave the book to two other people, in case it was just me. Both of them returned the book without making it past the first chapter. Here's hoping a revision happens and the world can read about the author's experiences.

I received this book free of charge from BohlsenGroup in exchange for my honest review.
