I have no words to express how much I hated this book. It is extremely poorly written, the characters don't seem real to me, the story doesn't have an appropriate pace, the story is very predictable... English is not my first language - although I'm proficient in it- and I usually don't care much for richness of language and writing style as long as the story is interesting, but this book is beyond hope. I only stuck with it because I wanted to see how much more I could hate it...

really enjoyed this book, loved the characters (apart from uncle Ken) totally gripping and un-putdownable.

I was thrilled to discover that I'd become one of the top 250 most-borrowed li
