one of my favorite readers

This story was too stupid for me to continue. The main characters were given no common sense, values, or morals. Everything (up to the point I read) they did was for self pleasure. They had no honor or respect for others, themselves, or work. It does not motivate me to care what else happens to them.

Twists & Turns!
