Fifty pages in and I was struggling. I did want to give up, PM the next person and get the book moving, but I kept feeling I'd read a page more just incase. The reality is I read the book, and I just had to keep turning the pages, and in a bizarre kind of way did enjoy it. Some of the characters I found infuriating.
I always feel that a good book is one that leaves you remembering it and pondering on it fo a while after. This is one of those books.
