Good concept. Hard to read.
Bendis feels it necessary for someone to be cut off while speaking or stutter or change thoughts mid sentence, on every page. It could be argued that it's realistic but it actually just interrupts the flow of the story. If you can get past the stop and start of the dialogue it's a good story, but doesn't feel completely flushed out to me.
Would I still have read it, knowing all this? Yes.
