I can't believe I actually managed to read to the end of this book: I think it must surely have been a case of stupified fascination to see just how silly, awful and over-explained (via dialogue between all the characters) it could get!
I did giggle over it several times, not because it was intentionally amusing but because it qualified as one of the most ridiculous books I've recently read.
