Four hours into the book and yet to find a reason to finish. No mystery, no drama, no nothing. Should have learned my lesson when I read "Lightning" by Koontz. Had to push myself to finish that one. But, if a writer can't hook a reader in the first third of the story...not likely it will get better. Also had an issue with the story being told mostly through the eyes of a young boy, and yet the vocabulary was often that of a well educated adult with an extended vocabulary e.g. would you expect a nine year old to use, much less understand, the word "existentialism?" I doubt he would have yet been studying the philosophical views of Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir.
Save yourself...unless you are very easily entertained, I suggest you steer clear.
