It's okay. Worth a read but no more than that,

This review is from: Entanglement (Paperback)
Ratings have become inflated because people seem to imagine that only four and five star reviews are worth having and the fact is that three stars means worth reading, four means above average and five should be so unusual as to be for exceptional books only. So I'm saying this book is worth reading, but no more than that. There are interesting insights into life in Poland, both before it became independent from the USSR and afterwards. The central character is only just believable, his love life will not bear inspection and the other characters never leave the page. The plot is convoluted and depends on a very strange kind of psychotherapy, but what really knocks this book down is the denouement which is not very believable. So worth a read, especially if you're on a train or otherwise distracted--but no more than that, and in fact only just worth it.
