did not like it
Recommended for: No-one
Read from February 15 to March 19, 2012 , read count: 1 too many.

Thoroughly disliked this book! I didn't like the story line, the characters, the tone of the book - in fact despite hating a book beat me, I would have stopped reading this book after about 20 pages if it wasn't for the reading group I was reading it for.

The premise of the novel was unpleasant, basically dwelling on humiliating and barbaric behaviour.

The only good thing about it was that there was a change in narrative character every page or so, which meant you could easily put it down without having read very much of it at all.

It doesn't merit further reviewing - avoid at all costs!
