Not embarrassed to say I cried at the end of this book and also through it...good depiction of pure psychopathic behaviour in some of the characters

I really enjoyed this book up until the very end. It was well written, and humourous at times. Chapters alternated between the protaganist as a child and as an adult until nearly the end, when for some strange reason chapters began to have both perspectives included in the same chapter. My only problem with the book is that there is way too much content jammed into the last few pages. It was almost as if the author was in a hurry to finish the book.
I really liked it until the end where it seems the author was in a big hurry to finish writing. I always enjoy stories that bounce back and forth between two time periods.
An interesting nature versus nurture novel - also really enjoyed the dry humour.
