I have read other Marta Tandori books so I looked forward to this one. The prologue was interesting. However, I can't shake the feeling that this story has been written by other writers with far less talent than this author. The story is okay - but - there are too many characters which were not very interesting, and too many subplots. If you want to spend some mind numbing time reading a decent book then this title is for you, Honestly, this review is hard to write given the quality of the other works (Continuance, Too Little Too Late, and No Hard Feelings) that I have read by this author.
