Good story but didn't like the style of the writing
on 13 February 2009
I really liked the sound of this book but ultimately I was disappointed. I did enjoy the story and would heartily applaud Ms Goodman's plotting, but unfortunately I couldn't take to the way it was written at all. I found it quite heavy going in places, and didn't even like any of the nondescript characters. Overall I would say it's a good plot with lots of twists and turns to keep you guessing but the writing was too highbrow to make it a pleasure.
