It took me a while to get into this book. The transitions between current day and two other points in the main characters life as well as the shift from third person to first person was something I had to get used to. In fact, I almost put the book down, but I got hooked on the story and the main character and I became interested in her life, although at times I didn't think she was all that likeable, at least I wasn't sympathetic to her through most of the book.
However, it was worth it and I would recommend to everyone. It's my first book by William Boyd, but definitely won't be my last.
