I reckon this is a good book, but not a great book. It finished quite satisfyingly, but the early part of the book was too confusing and too light (? is this what I mean...I'm not sure!). Specifically, many events and issues which were of great significance were barely touched upon and yet we seemed to spend time on matters of little apparent significance. (or did I just fail to pick up on things that other more alert readers would have found to be significant?)
It passed the Nancy Pearl test with no great problems, but after reading 100 or so pages I started to wonder whether I should keep going. I'm glad I did, but I won't be looking for more of Ms Wooller's work. Just my personal preference for writing style, I suppose. ( )
