This book took me forever to get through, so it automatically loses some stars. I can't quite put my finger on why either. Perhaps because I didn't particularly connect with Oscar's character. I really wanted to appreciate the author's writing style but I think it made for slow progress. The end was slightly better as the story became clear, but I was left with the feeling that the author was trying to be a little too clever for his own good. Call a spade a spade and all that!
