This was certainly not one of my favourite Patrick Gale books, it lacked the depth of other novels I've read by him. I found Dido precocious where I think I was supposed to find her endearing. And I was irritated by Pearce, again I think he was supposed to be loveable. I felt out of step with the characters and possibly the intentions of the author.

Sheena Wilkins I also found the storyline ridiculous at times. Like when the doctor delivers the diagnosis of a disfiguring genetic disease to a nine year old girl in the company of her mother's newly acquired boyfriend.
