I didn't want to stop reading this book at times.
I kept wondering when everything would resolve itself and what would happen to the dad.
None in particular.
It goes to show that not all books involving children are all sweetness and light, fluffy stories. I found myself getting angry at times with the dad, and sick of Billy and his obsession with snails. I also felt that the dad wasn't a good dad and Social services should've been involved. I didn't always find it an easy listen and it is certainly a book that explores how the minds of children work and The author wasn't afraid to go to dark places.
