Well, at first I was really wondering what the point of the story was, but then it just developed into a lot of little fun stories, the most exciting of course being the little fiasco near the end. Every now and then the author tried to make it a learning experience by introducing little facts here and there about history or about how bell towers work, but he was not too successful with that. Still, the book turned out okay.
