Total disappointment.

Any additional comments?

It was like Coronation Street on a very bad day, and I have not seen Coronation Street since I was 11, some 61 years ago. It was nothing like the write-up, it was just utter foolishness writ large. I gave up after an hour and a half of it.

Not for me

The author had drawn such a weak, pathetic and stupid lead character that I wanted to throttle him myself. There are no surprises; everything is telegraphed early on to such a degree I worked out the plot by the first half of the book. Given the serious subject matter, I can't help but feel that a more nuanced writer and one who cares about the finer details of a plot would have done the book more justice.
