Review by aapjebaapje
'Unputdownable' said The Guardian. Well they obviously didn't read it all! I put it down for a long spell only finished it out of a sense of tidiness - I couldn't bear the book accusing me of not having the constancy to read to the end.The idea for the book was excellent but for over 3/4 of the book I felt like I was wading through treacle. If you've got a pile of books to read, put it to the bottom.
