I read this book a few months ago. I remember that I wasn’t that impressed with the book but I couldn’t put my finger on why. So this post will contain what parts I do recall and because I have no evidence on why you shouldn’t read this book, the overall review is positive.
I liked the way the chapters were neatly divided into flash-backs and the present. It was a little disorienting at first but it was used elegantly. Information was dished out slowly, much like a having a meal at a fancy restaurant, small morsels that lead up to a great experience.
Thinking back, I was confused pretty much the whole way through, never really knowing what in the world was going on. I guess that was part of the point but I had some trouble keeping up. Sometimes, I had to keep re-reading a passage because I couldn’t wrap my head around it. I’m sorry but you’ll have to push through to the end if you want to find out if the pay-off is worth it, because I cannot recall how satisfied I was with the ending.
