I am undecided about this book. I enjoyed the story and wanted to find out what happened but I really didn't connect with any of the characters. I was a bit confused as to what was going on at times, especially at the beginning. Would have liked a little more development. However, I have other books by the same author to read and I have not been put off!

This is now going to be a bookray in this order -

Ollie1976 (US)
adrienne10 (US)
Jirika (Germany)
Lamelemon (Romania)
Queensissi (Portugal)

Please let me know if there are issues with this order.

Enjoy!


Updated - I have had to change the order of this bookray, hope this still works for all.

Hello, sorry sorry sorry that I had this book for so long. So many things happened this year, I married and had a baby son, so I completely forgot about it. Time to pass it on. Please forgive me.

The book is now safe with me, thank you so much.
I still have two other books to finish before I get to it, but I hope it won't take me long.

Cheers to you all, and congrats Jirika! Wishing you all the best!

This book made quite an impression on me. It seemed to me the characters were very well shaped, and their issues very varied and fine grained. From academics to street culture, from budding, raging hormones to mid-life crisis, the book has it all. It has been a pleasure reading it.

And I have to add I have finished reading this book while on the tube from eastern London to Heathrow, a week after the Oxford Bookcrossing Convention, so the book added another great story to its travels.

Thanks for sharing. PMing the next in line.

As you can see, it took me ages to read it. I had to read other books in between because i just wasn't captivated by it.

It is not that it's a bad book, it's just that the author tries to juggle so much at the same time that sometimes it is just more than enough.

I have a dad at my kid's swimming pool, who enjoys reading, so I'm going to see if he wants to read it. If he wants it, I'll release it to him, if not, I will release it in my library since they have a BCspot.

...

I have given it to the person at the swimming pool - I hope he will come and post it.
