I wanted to like this. I did. But it's like being told a story by someone who was hit in the head, or who is Abraham Simpson. Every story meanders away from it's meaning, and you're left wondering if it's worth reading just to figure out the minor mysteries in this novel. I didn't really care about the characters, and I found the plot too boring to continue with. I looked up a plot summary online, and then I was done. I suggest you do the same.
