In all honesty, it's been a while since I read this book. I don't even remember the storyline now. What I DO remember, is ploughing on valliantly to the end, hoping it would improve. It didn't. But most of all I remember just feeling really annoyed that I can never get the time back I wasted on reading this book! To make matters worse, a friend had sent me the actual book as a birthday present from England. Unfortunately the print was too small for my poor eyesight, so I purchased it as an ebook! I'll try to find someone to take the paperback off my hands.
