If you were to go by all those wonderful reviews until now who just could not put the book down, you would think you have got a pretty good read on your hands. I beg to differ.

The book is filled with bad prose, weird happenings, a very contrived plot, superfluous characters, twists in the plot just to up the 'shock' value and very badly put together narration.

The saving grace: the last few chapters where to all appearances, the author was in a hurry to wind up and finally started writing sensible prose with logical 'flow', skipping all the manufactured style. Clearly, the author can write but only if he wasn't so eager to please.
