My brain hates me for making it read this

The Stranger and the Time Machine: Volume 1 - Phil Scrima

This was an awful, awful book. The plot was so thin that it couldn't even be stretched to 180 pages, the developments silly and inconsistent, and characters so wooden that it might have been some sort of alchemical effort to revert the paper back into tree-form. The main character is the worst, a clear case of Gary Stu-wish fulfillment by the author. My brain so hates me for making it read this book that it may take several glasses of Scotch to pacify it.
