Promising start but quickly becomes dull
on 28 June 2005
Oh dear. This had such a promising start, but then quickly deteriorated into a long and rather dull conversation between the 2 main characters about what was happening - unfortunately this took up the last 2/3rds of the book. This is a great shame, as Milo and Alex and their respective lives are usually very interesting - here they become just mouthpieces with no outside life. The plot too is much too convoluted and I was doing serious skipping at the end. Please, for the next one, could we have more character and less plot!!
