Well, to start with I must say that the beginning of the book looked very promising, and I truly enjoyed the first third of the book.
However... It's kind of obvious that the main character is supposed to be a very positive one, but I must admit having read half a book I pretty much hated him - for his incredulous decisions, that are simply not "real life" ones and hardly believable. (view spoiler)
I received a copy of this book through the First Reads program.
