At the beginning I thought: 'What is all the hype about???!' I didn't like the introduction of the character of Freud in the novel, I thought it was stretching it quite a bit in the attempt of writing something 'different'. That feeling never left me, I still believe that had that part of the story been omitted it would have been a gripping read nonetheless. Just before the middle of the book it gets quite interesting, to the point that you surf through the last chapters with the necessity of knowing who did it? It is not a bad read, but a little overdone in places. Plus, I am not so fond of the Freudian theories!

Let me dissipate any doubts, the book is exquisitely written. I like verbose books, I like to swim in clear and… Read more
