This book has been recommended to me since it was first released, but I never knew what it was about or bothered to read any reviews. So when I saw the title pop up under recommended for my kindle I brought it without further thought or without reading the description. Like some reviewers this also made me wonder what was the point of the book, until about half way if you don't know the subject or the context of the book it does tend to just drift, but I was glad at the half way point that I didn't know what was coming, talk about the unexpected. However after this point I thought it continued to waft and drift till it met it's tidy end.
