I never like to give a book a negative review, as a lot of work has gone into it, but this book felt a little forced - taking some loose lying facts and making a story of it. The story was reasonably predictable and even the harrowing, emotionally charged details were often more just strung together than constructed together to create impact. I did not feel an emotional contact with the characters or their thought patterns. At one stage I thought it might have to do with the narrator, who portrayed the narration in a very formal way. I am not sure, but it was not a book that I could not wait to get back to, It has just come to an end.
