I made five attempts at reading this book, borrowing it from the library each time. I could never finish it. It was so clumsily written with different narratives that I just couldn't get in to the rhythm of who was saying what and why. Had this been a normal book, written in a normal format, then I probably would be more forgiving, finishing the book altogether even if I didn't like the storytelling. Very rarely do I not finish books, and in this case, I'll never know if I would have really liked the story or not. The author just annoyed me with the writing style too much to care to find out.
