I was expecting better, considering the glowing reviews this book has on Goodreads. I found the characters to be quite flat, almost interchangeable. The setting fares better.

The author uses very simple prose and repeats several turns of phrase - I think this is intentional, as it reflects the way people tell stories orally, and this is perhaps what the author trying to achieve. I found it dried up the story a bit every time.
