I really wanted to like this book but after I realized trying to get through it was becoming a chore, it wasn't worth it. I find if frustrating when characters in books are obsessed with subjects and will go on about them like the reader also shares this passion. Not saying they can't have a passion but I don't want to read pages about chemical reactions that go over my head.
I also struggled to like the main character. It is one thing to have an anti-hero but not even liking the protagonist makes a book difficult to read.
I'm sorry Alan Bradley, I was not a fan.
