2012 - I struggled 2/3s way through and finally abandoned this book. The writing was simplistic and I almost thought this was for a young adult audience. The lead character got on my nerves as he seemed to be either having his tea or eating constantly throughout the book. The pedestrian dialogue rambled on and on and the storyline was very ordinary. I was hoping this would have been a better, interesting and special read but it failed on all these points for me.

2015- I'm afraid my original review still stands. I didn't make nearly as far in as I did the first time but I still felt the same way about this story.
