Before Dishonor actually sounds like a worthy read, from what you're saying.
I hope this doesn't sound stupidly obvious (
), but only by reading it will you be able to get an answer as to its quality; it's greatly divisive. It's one of those books that I don't think lends itself too well to a general ask-around; its quality or lack of is about as subjectively varied as it gets. From "one of the absolute best" to "one of the absolute worst".
